Thermon Australia introduces the innovative ThermTrac system that provides a cost-effective alternative to conventional resistance heat tracing on long pipelines by eliminating the need for an extensive power distribution system.
The ThermTrac skin effect heat tracing system allows a pipeline up to 25km in length to be traced from a single power point. The versatility of the system makes it ideal for temperature maintenance up to 200ºC, freeze protection and heat-up applications.
The ThermTrac heat tracing system generates heat in the heat tube by the return electrical current flowing through the impedance of the inner skin of the tube. There is no voltage or current on the outer skin of the heat tube.
The ThermTrac insulated conductor is at the core of Thermon’s skin effect heating system. Custom-designed by Thermon, the insulated conductor features dielectric insulation and scuff jacket to meet specific project applications.
Polyolefin-insulated tinned copper conductors may be utilised for freeze protection and low temperature maintenance applications.
Fluoropolymer-insulated nickel plated copper conductors provide superior temperature, flexibility and durability required for higher temperature applications.
