Water-blocking Trace-Safe® features
“Dig safe” is a directive that everyone in the underground utility environment follows. But tracing safely is equally important. Whether you’re installing a new line or repairing an old one, a strong, long-lasting tracer wire will give you greater peace of mind.
If a tracer wire’s conductor is susceptible to corrosion, it will inevitably break down and interfere with signal strength. But Trace-Safe® features unique water-blocking characteristics, so its conductor will not corrode. Combine that with Trace-Safe’s inherently higher signal strength, and you get easier and more precise location — which is especially important when locating gas and sewer lines. Check out the results of our water blocking tracer wire locate comparison test.
For even more peace of mind, Trace-Safe® will not conduct an electrical current if struck by lightning, so it keeps anyone who is working further down the line safe.
Trace-Safe® water blocking tracer wire from NEPTCO is the only tracer wire that actually saves you money. It costs less than traditional solid copper tracer wire, and features superior impact and breaking strength. Its impact strength ensures continuity in open trench applications where it might contact rocks, shovels and equipment like backhoes. Its high tensile and breaking strength eliminates the need to use two standard copper or copper-clad steel wires during directional boring, so you save on usage alone.
Made with 19 AWG copper conductor, Trace-Safe® provides accurate location because it carries a precise signal. It locates on frequencies of 9.5, 38 and 80 KHz and outperforms 12 AWG copper tracer wire. Check out the results of our water blocking tracer wire locate comparison test.
