Thermon DLX-Self-Regulating-Heating-Cable

The Thermon DLX Self-Regulating Industrial Heat Tracing Cable is a robust and efficient solution specifically designed for safeguarding small and medium diameter pipes in light industrial and commercial applications. This versatile trace heater ensures protection against ruptures and leaks caused by freezing conditions, making it an ideal choice for diverse settings where freeze protection is paramount.

One of the standout features of DLX is its ease of installation, facilitated by parallel circuitry that allows the cable to be cut to the desired length on-site. The flexibility of materials and a small cross-section provide an exceptional bending radius, enabling the cable to effortlessly wrap around complex geometries. This flexibility ensures adaptability to various pipe configurations, enhancing the practicality and convenience of the installation process.

DLX is not only user-friendly but also energy-efficient. Its self-regulating capability ensures optimal heating for colder or warmer spots along the length of the traced equipment or surface. As the ambient temperature drops, the heat output increases to counteract potential freezing conditions. Conversely, when the temperature rises, the heat output decreases, contributing to energy conservation.

Safety is a top priority with DLX, as it self-regulates to prevent overheating, even when overlapped. The trace heaters are CE marked for use in ordinary (non-classified) areas, providing peace of mind regarding their safety and compliance with industry standards.

Reliability is a cornerstone of DLX, featuring proven and proprietary compounding, extrusion, and cross-linking technology. This construction ensures continuous operation and an extended life expectancy, making DLX a dependable and durable solution for long-term freeze protection needs.

DLX offers versatility with 10 and 20 W/m nominal power outputs, accommodating various heating requirements. The cable can be energized from 100-120 or 208-277 Vac, providing flexibility in power source options. Users can further tailor their solution by choosing between braid or foil and drain wire options, all encased in a UV and abrasion-resistant polyolefin jacket.

In summary, DLX Self-Regulating Industrial Heat Tracing Cable presents a comprehensive and optimized solution for freeze protection. Its features, including ease of installation, energy efficiency, safety, and reliability, make it an excellent choice for ensuring the integrity of small and medium diameter pipes in light industrial and commercial applications. Choose DLX for a safe, easy-to-install, and energy-efficient freeze protection solution in an optimized form factor.
