Thermon SafeTrace DLS-IT: Steam Tracers

SafeTrace provides a reduced yet predictable heat output along a traced pipe while preventing hot spots and overheating.
It replaces bare metallic tracers that waste energy and stress pipe works by raising pipe temperatures much higher than desired.

SafeTrace DLS-IT tracers utilize a safety yellow identification jacket to signify materials inherently dangerous such as steam per ASME/ANSI A13.1-1996. All SafeTrace IT tracers also comply with ASTM Std C-1055, which requires that human skin temperature be less than 136.4°F (58°C) when in contact with a hot surface for five seconds.

Typical Steam Tracing System using DLS-IT Tracers:

 Thermon Steam Tracing Systems using DLS-IT SafeTrace

  • Signifcantly reduces risk of burns
  • Saves up to 50% of steam consumption compared to bare metal tube
  • Predictable heat transfer—no hot spots or overheating
  • Lower cost of ownership—can be run continuously from the steam supply to the condensate collection system
  • Simple tape-on installation
  • Quick delivery
  • Free design assistance
