Heat Transfer Compounds SnapTrace THERMON

SnapTrace is a preformed flexible heat transfer compound
designed for rapid, consistent installation over steam trace
tubing on straight piping. SnapTrace also includes TFK
channel, providing mechanical and weather protection to
the installation. (Refer to the back of this specification sheet
for additional information.)
Thermon’s heat transfer compounds provide an efficient
thermal connection between the tracer and the process
equipment. By eliminating the air voids that would ordinarily
exist, heat is directed into the pipe wall primarily through
conduction rather than convection and radiation. A single
tracer utilizing Thermon’s heat transfer compound has
the equivalent performance of three to five (bare) tracers.
Bulk Heat Transfer Compounds can be installed in TFK
channels to create a ChannelTrace™ system. While
SnapTrace is considered part of the ChannelTrace family,
the rapid installation of SnapTrace on straight runs is unique
and cost effective with rapid installation.


DESCRIPTIONHeat Transfer Compounds SnapTrace THERMON

SnapTrace sections are shipped in 4-foot (1.22 m) lengths
and are packaged 25 sections per box. Each SnapTrace
order includes protective TFK galvanized steel channels.
SnapTrace is non-soluble in most liquids and requires no
curing procedures.
