TubeTrace HTX2
Tubing Bundles

TubeTrace HTX2 is a pre-engineered electric traced tube bundle for steam sample lines and impulse lines to pressure transmitters. TubeTrace HTX2 will provide water freeze protection in ambient conditions down to -30°F (-34°C) with 25 mph (40 kph) wind. HTX2 is suitable for superheat steam service temperatures up to 1100°F (593°C) for a duration of 2 minutes per cycle.

In the past, tubing subject to high temperature exposure was heat traced with series resistance mineral insulated (MI) heat trace. MI heaters are custom made to fit each application, so long lead times are often required. TubeTrace HTX2 solves this with Thermon parallel resistance HPT heat trace isolated from direct contact with high temperature tubing.

TubeTrace HTX2 bundles are suitable for continuous exposure to 750°F (399°C) and/or intermittent superheat steam service temperatures to 1100°F (593°C) even when power is applied to the heat trace during ambient conditions of 40°F (5°C).
