Metallic Tank and Vessel Heating Panel
The RT FlexiPanel is a self-contained, high performance
flexible heating panel designed specifically for use on
metallic tanks or vessels. Designed to provide heat outputs
at 2 watts per square inch (3,100 watts per square meter)
or less, the RT FlexiPanel distributes heat evenly over the
entire panel surface. The low profile flexible design of
the panel permits rapid, troublefree installation using the
mounting kit available from Thermon.
To ensure multiple flow paths for electrical current to pass,
the RT FlexiPanel utilizes a parallel circuit design based on
a stamped high temperature alloy heating element. This
design eliminates the burnout potential common with
series wire-based designs. The rugged construction of the
RT FlexiPanel includes a tough metal jacket that provides
mechanical protection during handling and installation. The
panel’s heating element is further protected from vibration
and moisture by sandwiching it in a heat-laminated layer of
silicone rubber that provides cushion and a watertight seal.
RT FlexiPanels are approved for use in ordinary (nonclassified)
and hazardous (classified) areas.
