Typical Applications

QMax FTS Gen 2 heat tracing maximizes the heat input of regular stainless steel or copper tube tracer and offers consistent results. First, QMax transforms the nature of a steam tracer from ineffective convective heat transfer to highly efficient conductive heat transfer. Second, the heating surface area is increased to as much as 2 inches (50mm) using highly conductive aluminum. A single tracer with the addition of QMax FTS can achieve the same results as multiple tube tracers or even jacketed pipe. This saves time and money on capital projects and reduces long-term maintenance costs.
