This design guide provides a step-by-step approach for the design, specification, and selection of a bill of materials for an electric heat tracing system. Electric heat tracing systems are designed to make up for the heat lost from process system equipment through the thermal insulation. In some cases, the heat tracing system can be used for system heat-up at initial startup or after a power shutdown. The information in this design guide will allow the user to design, specify, and select a complete bill of materials for freeze protection or process maintenance applications for a piping system or tank. By following the steps in this guide the user can easily select a complete bill of materials for the system, including heating cable, connection accessories, and temperature controls.

THERMAL DESIGN – PIPES
The first step in designing a heat trace system is to determine the heat loss from each pipe or tank to be traced. Collect the following data for each pipe (for tank applications go to page 6). Then follow the steps below to determine the heat loss. Maintenance Temperature, Tm: Minimum Ambient Temperature, Ta: Location, Indoor/ Outdoor: Wind Speed, if applicable: Nominal Pipe/ Tubing Size, DP: Additional Safety Factor, if required: Thermal Insulation Type and Thickness:
Example: Step 3. Adjust for Insulation

Table 1 (page 2) is based on ASTM C547 Fiberglas® insulation. QP, as found in the step above, must be adjusted for the insulation type. Multiply your heat loss by Ia, the Insulation Adjustment Factor, from the values in Table 2 (page 5). QF = QP x Ia For Cellular Glass, Ia = 1.48 English QF = 3.3 W/ft x 1.48 = 4.88 W/ft Metric QF = 10.8 W/m x 1.48 = 15.98 W/m

English Maintenance Temperature, Tm: Minimum Ambient Temperature, Ta: Location, Indoor/ Outdoor: Wind Speed, if applicable: Nominal Pipe/ Tubing Size, DP: Additional Safety Factor, if required: Thermal Insulation Type and Thickness:
Example:

40ºF -20ºF Outdoor 10 mph 3" Steel None 2" Cellular Glass

Step 4. Correct for Indoor Location/ Windspeed

If location is indoors multiply QF by 0.9.
Step 5. Correct for Additional Safety Factor

Table 1 is based on 10% safety factor and 20 mph (32 kph) windspeed, add 5% margin for each 5 mph (8 kph) over 20 mph (32 kph).

Metric Maintenance Temperature, Tm: Minimum Ambient Temperature, Ta: Location, Indoor/ Outdoor: Wind Speed, if applicable: Nominal Pipe/ Tubing Size, DP: Additional Safety Factor, if required: Thermal Insulation Type and Thickness:
Step 1. Calculate ∆T

4.4ºC -28.9ºC Outdoor 16 kph 76 mm Steel None 51mm Cellular Glass

∆T = Tm - Ta English = 40ºF - (-20ºF) = 60ºF Metric = 4.4ºC - (-28.9ºC) = 33.3ºC
Step 2. Determine Pipe Heat Loss

Find QP in Table 1 (page 2) for the nominal pipe size and insulation thickness based on ∆T. For example, for a 3" (76 mm) pipe with 2" (51 mm) insulation and ∆T = 60ºF (33.3ºC), the value for QP is 5.5 W/ft (10.8 W/m).

In the event of sub-zero temperatures the optional enclosure heater is available. On/Off or PID control. 40 . The Chromalox HTLSC1D2 series offers single and dual loop designs and are approved for Class 1 Division 2 Areas. The HTLSC1D2 series implement a scaleable design such that they can be configured with or without communications. The heat tracing circuit is switched by a 30 amp solid state relay rated at 40˚C ambient. mA. This unique format offers a design that can be tailored both by price and features to meet the most challenging demands in heat trace applications. The HTLSC1D2 series have programmable inputs (thermocouple.intelliTRACE™ Controls for Hazardous Location Applications intelliTRACE CONTROLS Description The Chromalox HTLSC1D2 series panels are microprocessor based temperature control and monitoring units for heat tracing used in freeze protection and process temperature control applications. Auto-tune function. ground fault monitoring or enclosure heater. The Chromalox HTLSC1D2 series panel comes ready to install and includes control and power wiring terminal blocks for field connections. current alarm. VDC). The optional ground fault monitoring addresses the national electric code requirements and reduces the cost of installing costly ground-fault circuit breakers. This series of panels can be configured for ambient or line sensing control. and sensor failure indication. RTD.
