  • Patent number: 10533692
    Abstract: A heatable media line includes a connecting part, which establishes an electrical connection, and serves to introduce a heat conductor into a media line section. A connection of the heat conductor with contact-forming parts is set up in an end part, and the heat conductor is tightly accommodated in boreholes of a coupling part by means of two sealing bodies spaced apart from each other, as well as introduced into the media line section by way of a supporting body for purposes of heating a medium flowing in the latter. In order to produce a reliable seal intended to prevent the medium from penetrating into the end part, recesses in the walls of the coupling part and an interruption of a creepage distance are configured between the sealing bodies such that the heat conductor is directly in contact with the surrounding atmosphere.
