Thermon T-3

Highly Efficient Heat Transfer Compound


Thermon T-3 heat transfer compound is engineered to establish a highly efficient thermal bond between steam or electric heaters and process pipes or equipment. Its innovative formulation enhances heat transfer efficiency, offering a cost-effective alternative to traditional methods such as contoured clamp-on jackets. Remarkably, a single Thermonized steam tracer, combined with Thermon’s heat transfer compound, outperforms multiple bare tracers, providing equivalent performance while reducing costs.

T-3 is ideally suited for applications with maximum exposure temperatures of 371°C (700°F). To streamline installation and minimize waste, Thermon recommends utilizing their ChannelTrace™ system, featuring TFK channels. This system not only provides protection prior to thermal insulation installation but also eliminates the need for special curing procedures for the T-3 heat transfer compound.

With its exceptional heat transfer capabilities and compatibility with various heating systems, Thermon T-3 ensures efficient and reliable thermal performance in industrial applications. Whether used with steam or electric heaters, T-3 offers a cost-effective solution for enhancing heat transfer efficiency and optimizing thermal performance in diverse environments.
