WEIGHTS, MEASUREMENTS, AND PACKAGING
SPECIFICATION EXAMPLE (FOR SPECIFYING ENGINEERS)
Tracer wire shall be a 12 AWG solid, PRO-TRACE® HF-CCS PE30. Tracer wire shall consist of a dead soft annealed, 21% IACS conductivity, copper clad steel conductor with a minimum break load of 282 lbf (55,000 psi) to ensure flexibility and strength. Conductor shall be extruded with a 30 mil, high density polyethylene insulation, and blue in color to meet the APWA color code of the buried utility line. Tracer wire shall be rated for direct burial use at 30 volts and RoHS compliant. Tracer wire shall be PRO-TRACE® HF-CCS PE30 as manufactured by Pro-Line Safety Products and made in the USA. If tracer wire connectors are neccesary, contractor shall use a PRO-TRACE® TW Connector (Part No: 73901) rated for direct burial use filled with silicone sealant to prevent corrosion at connection points.
