APPLICATIONS & INFORMATION

(NEW & IMPROVED) PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 tracer wire has almost 7X the breakload of copper, which allows 1 wire to be installed in directional boring, plow-in, or open-trench applications.  This tracer wire provides the perfect balance between strength, ductility, and brittleness to ensure durability.  When copper tracer wire is used, 2 to 5 wires may be used to obtain the needed strength to prevent breakage. In comparison, using 1 wire of 12, 10, or 8 AWG HDD-CCS is successful and costs substantially less.  Bottom line is PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS tracer wire is superior to copper in strength and durability.  Take a look at some of the advantages.

      • Designed for directional boring, plow-in, or open trench using 1 wire
      • Perfect Balance Between Tensile Strength, Ductility, and Brittleness
      • Has Almost 7X the break-load of Copper
      • Corrosion Resistant Properties of Copper
      • Tracer Wire Performance Equal to Copper
      • High-Density, HMWPE Insulation, and Direct Burial Rated
      • Significantly Lower in Cost and Great Price Stability
      • Most Durable Tracer Wire on the Market

STANDARDS & REFERENCES

PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 conductor meets or exceeds all applicable ASTM specifications, requirements of the National Electrical Code.

 

      • ASTM B869: Standard Specification 21% IACS, Hard Drawn, Copper-Clad Steel Wire.
      • ASTM B170: Standard Specification for Oxygen-Free Electrolytic Copper.
      • ASTM D1248: Standard Specification for Polyethylene Plastics Extrusion Materials For Wire and Cable.

TRACER WIRE CONSTRUCTION

PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 is an extra high-strength, copper clad steel tracer wire.  A high 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.  The high break load allows only 1 conductor to be used in any tracer wire application while providing the perfect balance between break load, ductility, and decreasing brittleness. It is the best performing tracer wire for directional drilling (boring).

PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 is protected with a 45 mil, high-density, high molecular weight polyethylene (HDPE) insulation.  HDPE provides an excellent balance of surface smoothness, processing ease and electrical consistency.  HDPE insulation provides superior strength against underground elements that help prevent accidental breaks caused by rocks in shifting soil conditions.
