For 1.5 inch (3.8cm) RV Drain Pipe Elbow
Size: 3" x 8" (7.6cm x 20.3cm)
Amperage Draw: 0.9 Amps
Pipe elbow heaters can be used on straight pipe runs shorter than 12” (30.5cm) either installed running parallel along the bottom of the pipe or wrapped around like a Band-Aid around the finger.
The UltraHeat pipe heaters are designed to be used on electrically non-conductive RV drain pipe as described under the Codes and Standards of the RV Industry for use within a Recreational Vehicle. All pipe and pipe elbow heaters are either ‘on’ or ‘off’ and are not controlled with a built-in sensor like our RV tank heater models are equipped. They are designed to protect against fluid freezing within a pipe down to -11°F (-24°C) when property installed (instructions on installation click here). And like all of the RV heat panels we offer, should only be powered up under the two conditions of colder freezing weather conditions and with fluid present within.
If you are considering use in extreme cold weather, due to lower volume of fluids within a pipe, additional insulation wrapping maybe suggested over the top of both the pipe and heat panel (Please read our answered questions found on our FAQ page for more info).
Like all of our other RV heaters, this panel has an easy peel-n-stick backing using our proprietary adhesive formula, designed not to breakdown and ultimately fail and release like most on the market, in fact ours increases its adhesion properties in the ageing process. The method in which our adhesive is applied also gives it a stronger molecular concentration, far superior to the secondary adhesion process most commonly used. All reasons which is why we are not surprised to hear of reported heat panels still attached and functional after decades of use.
