AccuTrace™ Heat Tracing Systems
AccuTrace™ Heat Tracing SystemsAccuTrace™ 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 process control.

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
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
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.
