Product Announcement from Thermon Manufacturing Co.
Thermon RSX parallel self-regulating heating cables provide frostheave protection of cryogenic storage vessels. RSX heating cables offer the power output needed to maintain the substrate of cryogenic tanks above freezing temperatures. With cut-to-length parallel circuitry, RSX cables can be field fabricated, eliminating the need for specific circuit lengths to be provided for the application. The heat output of RSX cable varies in response to the surrounding conditions along the entire length of a circuit which make it ideally suited for foundation heating applications where the heat demand may vary.
The superior construction of RSX with 2.1 mm2 (14 AWG) bus wires, provide durability and large geometry to effectively transfer power output in conduit. The fluoropolymer overjacket provides corrosion resistance, durability for installation in conduit, and lowers the friction factor for pulling.
RSX is approved for use in ordinary (nonclassified) areas, hazardous (classified) areas and are certified to the ATEX directive for use in Category 2 and 3 (Zone 1 and 2) classified areas.
