What kinds of applications use high temperature wire and cable?

High Temperature wire and cable is generally used in motors, furnaces, ovens, and high intensity lights.

What is the typical make-up of a high temperature cable?

The conductors in high temperature cable can be nickel coated copper or pure nickel, while the insulation in high temperature cable range from PTFE tapes and mica tapes to fiberglass and ceramic braids. Usually the cable jacket is a high temperature fiberglass or ceramic fiber braid.

What applications generally use high temperature wire TGGT & MGT?

TGGT high temperature wire is designed to be used in cooking and drying equipment such as industrial and commercial ovens, furnaces, heating cable, and kilns, to name just a few. The temperature rating of TGGT is 250 C with a voltage rating of 600 volts. MGT is generally used for internal wiring of commercial, industrial and household ovens, electric heaters, and in equipment used in iron mills, steel mills, glass plants and cement kilns. The temperature rating of MGT high temperature wire is 450 C with a voltage rating of 600 volts.

What are the benefits of PVC insulation on high temperature wire?

PVC insulation works well in a high temperature environment up to 105 C. The insulation offers excellent resistance to outside forces including weather, oil, abrasion, liquids and chemicals. PVC also possesses good dielectric strength.
