Thermon HSX-Self-Regulating-Heating-Cable

The Thermon HSX Self-Regulating Industrial Heat Tracing Cable, a fundamental component of Thermon’s innovative WarmTrace™ system, is meticulously engineered for the specific purpose of maintaining hot water supply piping at desired nominal maintenance temperatures. Featuring 14 AWG bus wires, larger than any other system available, HSX demonstrates unparalleled efficiency, reducing the number of circuits required for the installation of an electric heat-traced system.

Designed with simplicity and efficiency in mind, the WarmTrace system replaces the complexity of recirculation networks with return pipes, circulating pumps, and balancing valves. For each hot water supply line, users can effortlessly match the hot water maintenance temperature with the corresponding color-coded HSX cable, following the guidelines for insulation in the design guide.

The self-regulating nature of HSX ensures automatic maintenance of desired water temperatures. Regardless of changes in pipe diameters, flow rates, or use patterns, the design remains unaffected. Variations in ambient or water temperature are seamlessly compensated for, as the trace heater adjusts its heat output along the entire length of the heat-traced pipe.

Installation of HSX is user-friendly, with the cable being cut to length and installed directly on the supply piping under conventional thermal insulation using ordinary hand tools. Specially designed kits for power connection, end termination, splicing, and other accessories streamline the installation process, ensuring quick and easy setup. The increased circuit lengths with HSX contribute to a reduction in the number of circuits to fabricate, translating to increased efficiency during installation.

Beyond ease of use, the WarmTrace system, incorporating HSX, proves to be economical to operate and maintain. By replacing recirculation systems, it eliminates the costs associated with continuously operating pumps, deliberately overheating water, and maintaining a recirculation setup. Furthermore, potential water savings are realized since the heat tracing can be installed up to the point of use, eliminating the wait for hot water.

In summary, the HSX Self-Regulating Industrial Heat Tracing Cable is an integral part of Thermon’s WarmTrace system, offering an efficient, cost-effective, and user-friendly solution for maintaining hot water supply piping at desired temperatures. With its advanced features, easy design, and straightforward installation, HSX proves to be a reliable choice for applications where efficiency and simplicity are paramount.
