HSX for Hot Water Temperature Maintenance
Self-Regulating Heating Cable
Application: Hot Water Temperature Maintenance
HSX heating cables, the heart of Thermon’s WarmTraceTM system, are specifically designed to
maintain hot water supply piping at desired nominal maintenance temperatures. With 14 AWG
bus wires (larger than any other system available), HSX can reduce the number of circuits
required to install an electric heat-traced system.
Easy to Design . . .
A WarmTrace system replaces the complex recirculation network of return pipes, circulating
pumps and balancing valves. For each hot water supply line, simply match the hot water
maintenance temperature with the
corresponding color-coded cable and
insulate per the design guide.
HSX self-regulating cable automatically
maintains desired water temperatures.
Changes in pipe diameters, flow rates
and use patterns will not affect the design.
Even variations in ambient or water
temperature are compensated for as the
cable adjusts its heat output along the
entire length of a heat-traced pipe.
Easy to Install . . .
HSX heating cable is cut to length and
installed directly on the supply piping
under conventional thermal insulation
with ordinary hand tools. Kits for power
connection, end termination and splicing, plus other accessories, are designed for quick
and easy installation. Increased circuit lengths with HSX mean less circuits to fabricate and
fewer total circuits.
Economical to Operate and Maintain . . .
Because a WarmTrace system replaces recirculation, it also eliminates the costs of continuously
operating pumps, deliberately overheating the water and maintaining the recirculation system.
Potential water savings can also be realized since the heat tracing can be installed up to the
point of use; i.e., no waiting for hot water.
Supply voltage 120 or 208 VAC
