FLX for Pipe Freeze Protection
Self-Regulating Heating Cable
Application: Freeze Protection
FLX self-regulating heating cables are designed to provide
freeze protection and temperature maintenance
to metallic and nonmetallic pipes, tanks and equipment.
FLX heating cables are rated for heat outputs of
3, 5, 8 and 10 watts/foot at 50° F (10, 16, 26 and 33
watts/meter at 10°C) when powered at 110 to 120 Vac
or 208 to 277 Vac. FLX is a proven, simple, practical
solution for both metal and plastic pipes.
Rugged and Reliable . . .
FLX self-regulating cables are protected by a tinned
copper braid and a polyolefin outer jacket to provide
grounding and additional mechanical protection for the
cable. An optional fluoropolymer outer jacket is available
if additional environmental protection is required.
Heat tracing users expect quality products and services
from a reputable manufacturer. Thermon exceeds
these expectations by operating under the ISO 9001
standard for quality.
Easy to Design . . .
Whether the application is a small project or a complex
network of piping and equipment, designing an electric
heat traced freeze protection system is easy with
FLX self-regulating cables. The step-by-step design
guide leads the reader through determining the heating
requirements and number of circuits required to
establish a bill of materials.
With parallel circuitry, FLX cables do not require piping
dimensions and can be cut to length in the field. Heat
tracing circuits for field-routed piping can be quickly
and easily designed on site.
Easy to Install . . .
FLX is installed directly on metallic or nonmetallic
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.
Simply pull FLX from the supply reel, install directly on
the pipe and complete circuit fabrication. Tee splices
may be installed anywhere along the circuit to match
the layout of the piping.
