Thermon Trace Heating Cables
FLX self-regulating trace heaters are designed to provide freeze protection and temperature maintenance to metallic and nonmetallic pipes, tanks and equipment. FLX is rated for heat outputs of 10, 16, 26 and 33 W/m at 10°C (3, 5, 8 and 10 W/ft at 50°F) when powered at 110 to 120 Vac or 208 to 277 Vac. FLX is a proven, simple, practical solution for both metal and plastic pipes.
FLX self-regulating is protected by a tinned copper braid and a polyolefin outer jacket to provide grounding and additional mechanical protection for the cable. An optional fluoropolymer outer jacket is available if additional environmental protection is required.
Built with proven and proprietary compounding, extrusion, and cross-linking technology, FLX allows for continuous operation and extended life expectancy.
Whether the application is a small project or a complex network of piping and equipment, designing an electric heat traced freeze protection system is easy with FLX. The step-by-step design guide leads the reader through determining the heating requirements and number of circuits required to establish a bill of materials. With parallel circuitry, FLX does not require exact piping lengths to be known in advance and can be cut to length in the field. Heat tracing circuits for field-routed piping can be quickly and easily designed on site.
FLX is installed directly on metallic or nonmetallic piping under conventional thermal insulation with ordinary hand tools. Kits for power connection, end termination and splicing, plus other accessories, are designed for quick and easy installation. Simply pull FLX from the supply reel, install directly on the pipe and complete circuit fabrication. Tee splices may be installed anywhere along the circuit to match the layout of the piping.
