TECHNICAL DOCUMENTS

UNDERSTANDING YOUR TRACER WIRE SELECTION

APPLICATIONS & INFORMATION

PRO-TRACE HF-CCS PE30 tracer wire is designed to have the flexibility, memory, and feel of copper.  It also has a 43% higher break-load , minimizing damage during installation and while in service.  This product is best suited for open-trench applications.  Equal in signal tracing performance, it simply outperforms copper tracer wire and significantly reduces material costs.

      • Designed for Open-Cut, Plow-In, and Blow-In Applications.
      • Flexibility, Memory, and Feel of Copper.
      • 43% Higher Break Load than Copper.
      • Corrosion Resistant Properties of Copper
      • Tracer Wire Performance Equal to Copper.
      • 30 Mil, High-Density, HMWPE Insulation (HDPE), and Direct Burial Rated.
      • Significantly Lower in Cost with Great Price Stability.
      • User-Friendly and Virtually No “Recoil”.

TRACER WIRE CONSTRUCTION

PRO-TRACE HF-CCS PE30 is a flexible, copper-clad steel tracer wire. A low carbon steel core, metallurgically bonded with a copper cladding, that is uniform and continuous, creating a bi-metal conductor that acts as one and is corrosion resistant. Special annealing processes are performed during the cladding process giving HF-CCS the flexibility and feel of copper, but 43% higher in strength which means less breaks then copper tracer wire.

PRO-TRACE HF-CCS PE30 uses a 30 mil, high-density, high molecular weight polyethylene (HDPE) insulation. HDPE provides an excellent balance of surface smoothness, processing ease and electrical consistency. HDPE provides superior strength against underground elements that help prevent accidental breaks caused buy rocks in shifting soil conditions.
