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 concrete placement.

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, Form CPD1057.)

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 react.

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 areas.

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.

Supply voltage 208-277 VAC
