TubeTrace HTX is a pre-engineered electric traced tube
bundle for steam sample lines and impulse lines to pressure
transmitters. TubeTrace HTX will provide water freeze protection
in ambient conditions down to -50°F (-45°C) with 25
mph (40 kph) wind conditions. HTX is suitable for superheat
steam service temperatures up to 1100°F (593°C).
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 HTX solves
this with Thermon parallel resistance HPT heat trace isolated
from direct contact with high temperature tubing.
TubeTrace HTX bundles are designed to withstand continuous
1100°F (593°C) superheat steam temperature even
when power is applied to the heat trace during ambient conditions
of 40°F (5°C).
