Design Your Heat Tracing System Online
Heat tracing cable users can design and specify heat trace cable for freeze protection and process temperature maintenance applications using free software from Chromalox, Pittsburgh.
Available as a free download from its web site (www.chromaloxheating.com) or on a CD-ROM for PCs, ChromaTrace 2.0 allows users to design and specify heat tracing cable. Products covered include self-regulating, mineral-insulated and constant-wattage heat tracing, single-point on/off controls, multiloop PID controllers and connection accessories.
The software includes IEEE-compliant heat trace calculations for pipes and tanks and a cable and accessory selection guide. Its control design procedures allow control to be managed locally or remotely, and centralized installations can be temperature specified.
