BSX self-regulating heating cables

BSX self-regulating heating cables are designed to provide freeze protection or process temperature maintenance to metallic and nonmetallic piping, tanks and equipment. The heat output of BSX cable varies in response to the surrounding conditions along the entire length of a circuit. Whenever the heat loss of the insulated pipe, tank or equipment increases (as ambient temperature drops), the heat output of the cable increases. Conversely, when the heat loss decreases (as the ambient temperature rises or product flows), the cable reacts by reducing its heat output. This self-regulating feature allows BSX to be overlapped without temperature upset damage to the cable. BSX cables are certified for use in ordinary (nonclassified) areas and in potentially explosive atmospheres in accordance with the ATEX Directive and the IECEx Scheme.2

Thermon offers system accessories designed specifically
for rapid, trouble-free installation of Thermon heating
All cables require a connection kit to comply with approval
requirements. Information on accessories to complete
a heater circuit installation can be found in the “Heating
Cable Systems Accessories” product specification sheet
(Form TEP0010).
