Heat Transfer Compounds

Heat Transfer Compound:-
Thermal conductive compounds to increase the heat transfer efficiency of steam tracing.
Heat Transfer Compound

T-275 Heat Transfer Compound is used where high temperature maintenance or high exposure temperatures are prevalent. Thermon heat transfer compound provide an efficient thermal connection between the tracer and the process equipment. By eliminating the air voids that would ordinarily exist, heat is directed into the pipe wall primarily through conduction rather than convection and radiation. A single tracer utilising Thermon’s heat transfer compound has the equivalent performance of three to five air convection (bare) tracers.
T-275 is typically utilised for high temperature applications with maximum exposure temperatures of 275°C. To minimise waste and speed installation, use Thermon Channel Trace™ system featuring TFK galvanised steel channel. The Channel Trace system provides mechanical and weather protection prior to installation of thermal insulation. Refer to the back of this specification sheet for details.
