“THERMON” BSX Self-Regulating Trace Heating Cable for Process Temperature Maintenance Freeze Protection – High-Quality Heat Trace Element

£8.00£12.00

  • High-quality Thermon BSX self-regulating heating cable for trace heating installations for use in process temperature maintenance and freeze protection.
  • For use on metallic and non-metallic piping, tanks and equipment to maintain liquid temperature or viscosity.
  • Incredibly energy-efficient as heat output varies in response to the surrounding temperature so variations in the ambient temperature due to heat-losses through thermal insulation are compensated automatically along the entire length of pipe.
  • Certified for use in both ordinary (non-classified) and hazardous (classified) areas. 
  • Available in six variations with different watt-densities. View data sheet for further information.

Item Description

Thermon BSX self-regulating heating cables are for use with trace heating installations, typically to regulate temperature, maintain viscosity and prevent freezing of pipes, tanks and other equipment which carries liquids. Suitable for use in commercial, industrial and domestic applications, Thermon trace heating cables offer energy-efficient heating and temperature maintenance due to a clever self-regulating element that varies its heat output in accordance with changes in the ambient temperature across the length of a circuit. 

Thermon BSX cables can be used on metallic and non-metallic surfaces and are certified for use in both ordinary (nonclassified) and hazardous (classified) areas. Available in six different variants :

  • BSX 3-2-OJ
  • BSX 5-2-OJ
  • BSX 3-2-FOJ
  • BSX 5-2-FOJ
  • BSX 8-2-FOJ
  • BSX 10-2-FOJ

(For full specifications including watt densities, please view the data sheet).

Thermon BSX cables have a complex multilayer construction and offer industry-leading build quality. The core consists of nickel-plated copper bus wires (16 AWG) embedded within radiation cross-linked semiconductive heating matrix, followed by radiation cross-linked dielectric insulation. This is surrounded by a tinned copper braid, and a polyolefin over-jacket to provide additional protection where exposure to aqueous inorganic chemicals is expected. The FOJ variant offers a fluoropolymer over-jacket which offers additional protection where exposure to organic chemicals and corrosives is expected.
