Isolated Steam Tracers

Thermon BTS SafeTrace Thermon SLS SafeTrace Thermon DLS Safe Trace

steam tracers are specifically designed to maintain temperature-sensitive or corrosive products. It can be easily installed without the need for channels, spacer blocks or metallic attachment bands.


  • Accurate and predictable heat transfer properties
  • Significantly reduced risk of burns
  • Easy installation without the need for channels, spacer blocks or metallic attachment bands

SafeTrace® Isolated Steam Tracer Products:

  • SafeTrace DLS for typical pipe temperatures from 5°C to 54°C (40°F to 130°F)
  • SafeTrace SLS for typical pipe temperatures from 24°C to 93°C (75°F to 200°F)
  • SafeTrace BTS for typical pipe temperatures from 38°C to 121°C (100°F to 250°F)


Heet Sheet

Vessel/ Tank Heating Units

Steam Tracer Component: Heet Sheet

are designed to provide large area coverage of steam tracing, eliminating cumbersome layout of individual tracers.The welded waffle style pattern provides multiple flow paths reducing risk of blockage possible with single-flow designs.

HeetSheet units are available in multiple sizes and are prerolled to conform to the radius of the tank. Stainless steel tubing connections are provided for steam or other heating or cooling media.


  • Known and predictable heat transfer properties
  • High heat transfer rates
  • Quick and easy installation due to factory-fitted heat transfer compound
  • No cross-contamination between heating media and tank content
  • Reduced risk of blockage

Thermon tracer components: Applications

Steam tracing applications range from freeze protection to maintaining temperatures close to that of the steam itself. Thermon steam tracing systems have a low installed cost compared to multiple bare tracers, “light” tracing with spacer blocks, or jacketed systems. “Thermonized” systems also provide predictable operation and maintenance that process plants demand.
