KSR for Surface Snow and Ice Melting
Self-Regulating Heating Cable
Application: Snow and Ice Melting
KSR self-regulating heating cables are an integral part of
Thermon’s SnoTrace™ snow and ice melting systems.
Designed and approved specifically for direct burial,
KSR cable withstands the abuse encountered during
The self-regulating heat output of KSR cable varies in
response to the surrounding concrete temperatures.
When the concrete is at or below freezing temperatures,
KSR will deliver the maximum power output. As the
concrete warms-up, the power output of the cable will
decrease. Energy efficiency can be accomplished
without special or sophisticated controls.
Easy to Design . . .
Determining the circuit layout of KSR cable for a snow
and ice melting system is easy. The step-by-step design
guide leads the reader through determining the heating
requirements, selecting the cable spacing and establishing
the number of heating circuits and accessories
required to complete the SnoTrace system. (For more
information, refer to the SnoTrace KSR Design Guide,
With cut-to-length parallel circuitry, KSR cables are
easily adapted to variations in design found at the job
site. This can reduce or eliminate the need to redesign
circuits off-site without details or sufficient time to
Easy to Install . . .
The demanding environment associated with forms,
reinforcing steel and concrete placement requires that
the cable be rugged. The fluoropolymer jacketed KSR
with an additional silicone rubber outer jacket provides
the needed durability. Yet it is flexible enough to adapt
to steps, curved walkways, landings or other confined
Installing and terminating the cable is easy. Simply
unreel the amount of cable needed for the area/circuit
and terminate with Thermon circuit fabrication kits and
accessories. Power connection, splice kits, end termination
and expansion joint kits are all designed specifically
for the demanding application.
