The ThermTrac skin effect heat tracing system available from Thermon Australia eliminates the need for an elaborate power distribution system in heat tracing applications on long pipelines.
ThermTrac skin effect heat tracing system provides a cost-effective alternative to conventional resistance heat tracing on long pipelines, enabling pipelines up to 25km to be traced from a single power point.
The versatile ThermTrac skin effect heat tracing system is ideal for temperature maintenance, freeze protection and heat-up applications.
The system generates heat in the heat tube by the return electrical current flowing through the impedance of the inner skin of the tube. There is no voltage or current on the outer skin of the heat tube.
The core of the skin effect heating system is the ThermTrac insulated conductor custom-designed by Thermon with dielectric insulation and scuff jacket to meet specific project applications.
Polyolefin-insulated tinned copper conductors may be utilised for freeze protection and low temperature maintenance applications.
Fluoropolymer-insulated nickel plated copper conductors provide superior temperature, flexibility and durability necessary for higher temperature applications up to a maximum of 200ºC.
