AccuTrace™ Heat Tracing Systems
|Accurate Gas Control Systems
Heat Trace Systems provide an excellent and proven solution to gas
condensation problems. AccuTrace™ Systems may be used separately or
interfaced with the AG Systems or other hosts to provide the total
solution to your gas condensation problems, exhaust line bake-out,
etc. The AccuTrace system eliminates process variables and gives greater
How AccuTrace Heating Systems Work:
The AccuTrace System consists of the required heat output cable
connected to a control system. A temperature sensor attached to
the gas line measures the temperature and feeds back to the controller.
The controller switches power to the heating cable to maintain the
desired set point temperature. The heater cable is attached to the
gas lines using fiberglass tape tie down points and the heater cable
is secured with aluminum tape. Techlite™ Insulation is then put
on the lines to minimize heat loss to the ambient environment.
AccuTrace™ System Components
Accutrace Self-Regulating Heat Trace Cable comes in a variety of
heat outputs. The AT-BTXG and AT-UTXG Series heat trace cable has
a tinned copper braid cover with a thermoplastic elastomer outer
jacket thereby conforming to the NEC code 427-22 and 427-23 for
grounded metal covering of heaters.
AT-BTXG Self-Regulating Series has a maximum
operation temperature of 150oF (65oC) and is available in 5, 8 and
10 watts/ft. (16,26 and 33 w/m)
AT-UTXG High Temperature Self-Regulating Series has a maximum operation
temperature of 250oF (121oC) and is available in 5, 10 and 15 watts/ft.
(16,33 and 49 w/m)
Controller Assemblies house a complete single or dual channel control
system including a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) microprocessor
based temperature controller, solid state relay, safety relay and
temperature sensor. The system may be housed in either a heavy duty
NEMA4X wall-mounted enclosure (AT-NEAX-X) or a free standing modular
enclosure (AT-MODEAX-X). Standard control systems have a power handling
capacity of 1600 W per channel, are fuse protected against electrical
overload and are fully programmable.
Techlite™ Insulation provides insulation for process applications
to minimize heat loss to the ambient environment. Techlite has excellent
thermal properties and is maintenance free, easy to install and
protects against moisture, mold, fungus and corrosion. Techlite
is available in a variety of sizes and colors with self-sealing
laps or lock track fastener.
