Electric Heat Tracing

Electric Heat Tracing

Things to know!


  • Electrical area classification and T- Rating (Auto Ignition Temperature for the area) Class 1 – Div 2 or Class 1 Div 1
  • How do you want to control the system? Mechanical Thermostats, Control Panel or Electronic Controllers?
  • What is the required maintain temperature? (Freeze protection or Process )
  • Available Power ( 120, 208 , 480 or 600 volts)?
  • Jobsite location or ambient temperature?
  • Conduit & Wire type and by who?
  • What is the product?

Electrical Heat Trace allows customers for more diverse options for the heating and warming of product. The EHT can be controlled by a myriad of Control Systems or a simple Thermostat. Also the options for design are greatly increased allowing EHT to fit any thermal need your company may require.

Power Connection Kit & Mechanical Thermostats



The demands placed on heat tracing systems vary based on the design parameters specific to each application. To meet these needs, Straight Line Industrial Services, Inc. uses Thermon® manufacturer as its supplier who has the widest variety of electric heating cables and controls systems in the world. Controlling a heat tracing circuit can be as simple as a mechanical thermostat. Frequently, more sophisticated control and monitoring requirements are necessary. Whether it’s a mechanical thermostat or a microprocessor-based control and monitoring system, Straight Line Industrial Services, Inc. can handle the need.

Power Connections

Straight Line Industrial Services offers System supplied from Thermon® designed specifically for rapid, trouble-free installation of Thermon Heating Cables. Available in two varieties, Thermon kits are approved for use in ordinary (nonclassified) areas, hazardous (classified) areas, and Zone 1 and 2 classified areas.Terminator DP - Kit includes; NEMA 4X nonmetallic junction box with integral gasket, three-point DIN mount terminal block with nickel-plated copper terminals (600 V, 50 A), pipe-mounted fitting, stainless steel pipe attachment band for piping 10” or less. (PETK/SCTK termination kit required, order separately). DP...........................BSX, RSX, HTSX, VSX, HPT, FP.

Mechanical Thermostat

Controlling a heat tracing circuit can be as simple as a mechanical thermostat. Frequently, more sophisticated control and monitoring requirements are necessary. Whether it's a mechanical thermostat or a microprocessor-based control and monitoring system, Straight Line Indusrtial Services can handle with the help and Engineering of Thermon®.

Electronic Controllers

Electronic Controllers

Sophisticated control and monitoring requirements are available from Thermon products for winterization and process temperature control. Whether it’s a single point electronic thermostat or a multipoint microprocessor-based control and monitoring system, Straight Line along with Thermon have a solution for all your applications. (Alternatively, Thermon products also offers a complete line of mechanical thermostats for lower cost solutions and smaller systems.)

Electronic Controllers

This is a multicircuit microprocessor-based temperature control and monitoring module developed specifically for heat tracing. The unit provides control and monitoring capabilities via digital information display for a maximum of 18 heat tracing circuits. The module can be configured for either process sensing control (with an RTD for each circuit) or ambient sensing control (with a user’s choice of one or two RTD inputs).
