With substantial succes Thermon has designed heat
tracing systems for freeze protection and temperature
• Loading and unloading lines
• Gas/vapour-return lines
• Strip and cleaning lines
• Fuel oil lines
• Storage tanks and vessels
• Deck and tank cleaning lines
• Fire protection lines
• Engine room fuel and drip lines
• Cross-over lines
• Safety showers
All Thermon heat tracing cables used for the shipping
industry are in compliance with the requirements of
Maintenance up to 65°C - Heating cable type BSX
Maintenance up to 121°C - Heating cable type HTSX
All above mentioned materials comply with standards
IEEE515, IEC 62086-1 and IEC 620079-30-1.
The installed heat tracing materials can either be
controlled by local thermostats or by means of the
Thermon TC electronic heat tracing controller TC 816
often located in the wheel house or engine room.
More and more the electronic controller is used for
controlling and monitoring the pipeline temperatures
from one central point for safety reasons and not at
least single man operation.
