Frost Protection Of Water Pipework - Thermon FLX Heating Cables

Thermon FLX Heat Trace Cables – Trace Heating

Thermon FLX self-regulating heat tracing cables provide frost protection to pipework, instrument lines, tanks and drums up to 65° Celsius.

Thermon FLX Heat Tracing Cables

Frost Protection Of Water Pipework


Thermon FLX heat trace cable wattages per metre at 10°C – 10, 16, 26 and 33 watts.

  • Nominal Supply Voltage : 110-120 VAC or 208-277 VAC
  • Maximum Continuous Exposure Temperature : Power On: 65ºC, Power Off 85° Celsius
  • Circuit Protection : 30mA ground fault protection required
  • Minimum Cable Bend Radius : At -15ºC 10mm ; at -60ºC 32mm

Thermon FLX self-regulating trace heating cables increase power output as temperatures fall to provide guaranteed frost protection and temperature maintenance of pipework. Common applications include: mains cold water, sprinkler pipework, boosted cold water services, risers and chilled water frost protection in safe non-hazardous and hazardous area locations.

Trace Heating Cables - Frost Protection Heating Pipework

Pipework Frost Protection: Thermon FLX electric heat traced freeze protection for non-metallic* (plastic PVC, PEHD, PP, PVDF) and metallic (copper/stainless steel) pipework.

*Non-Metallic Pipe Frost Protection

  • PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
  • PEHD (Polyethylene – High Density)
  • PP (Polypropylene)
  • PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride)
Frost Protection - Trace Heating For Pipes, Valves, Flanged, Elbows

Flange & Pipe Support Frost Protection. Flanges: heating cables should be looped around pipe on each side of adjacent to the flange, frost protection cable must maintain contact with surface to compensate for heat loss. Pipe Supports: insulated pipe supports do not require additional heating cables, for uninsulated supports allow two times the length of the support plus additional 40cm of heater cable.

Frost Protection - Trace Heating For Pipes, Valves, Flanged, Elbows

Elbow, Pump & Valve Frost Protection. Elbows: locate heating cable on outside radius of elbow providing sufficient heat dissipation to pipe and affixed by tape on each side of the elbow. Pumps: additional frost protection and electric surface heating is achieved by serpentining tracer cables and replacing heat loss from mechanical plant. Valves: install frost protection heating cables in looping style to allow future valve relocation.
