Thermon SafeTrace SLS

Steam Heat Tracing Tubing


Thermon SafeTrace SLS-IT represents a pinnacle in steam heat tracing tubing, featuring a metallic tracer tube enveloped in innovative composite materials designed to lower thermal conductance and reduce heat transfer. This pioneering design provides a reduced yet predictable heat output along a traced pipe, mitigating the risks of hot spots and overheating. SafeTrace SLS-IT emerges as a sustainable alternative, replacing conventional bare metallic tracers that often waste energy and unnecessarily stress pipe works by elevating temperatures beyond necessary or desired levels.

Thermon SafeTrace SLS Features

Optimized Thermal Conductance: SafeTrace SLS-IT utilizes composite materials that effectively lower thermal conductance, optimizing heat transfer while minimizing energy wastage. The result is a precisely controlled heat output along the traced pipe, ensuring operational efficiency without unnecessary temperature escalation.

Energy Conservation: By replacing traditional bare metallic tracers, SafeTrace SLS-IT contributes to energy conservation. The reduced heat output prevents unnecessary energy dissipation, aligning with sustainable practices in heat tracing applications.

Safety Identification: SafeTrace SLS-IT tracers are easily identifiable with a safety yellow jacket, adhering to the ASME/ANSI A13.1-1996 standard. This color-coded system serves as a visual alert, signifying the presence of potentially dangerous materials such as steam. The tubing further complies with ASTM Std C-1055, ensuring human skin temperature remains below 58°C (136.4°F) when in contact with a hot surface for five seconds.

Compliance with Industry Standards: SafeTrace SLS-IT adheres to ASTM Std C-1055, providing comprehensive compliance with industry standards. This commitment to safety and performance enhances the reliability of the tubing in diverse heat tracing applications.

Versatile Installation: Supplied in long-length coils, SafeTrace SLS-IT offers flexibility in installation. It may be run continuously from the steam supply manifold, along the pipe, and over to the condensate return manifold, ensuring seamless integration into various heat tracing systems.

Thermon SafeTrace SLS-IT sets a new benchmark in steam heat tracing tubing, combining thermal efficiency, energy conservation, and safety. With its advanced composite materials and adherence to industry standards, it emerges as a dependable and forward-thinking choice for industries prioritizing precision, sustainability, and personnel safety.
