Freeze Protection with Steam
QMax FPX (Freeze Protection) is a continuous steam tracing standoff designed specifically for pipeline freeze protection. The
QMax FPX innovative design mitigates the heat transfer of regular stainless steel or copper tube tracer and offers guaranteed results. Most steam tracing standoffs are poorly designed or not designed at all. Tubing often touches the pipe which creates hot spots that can lead to internal corrosion.
QMax FPX continuous steam tracing standoff mitigates hot spots
while offering predictable process temperatures.
QMax Industries, Inc. models the thermal characteristics of each application so the results of the QMax FPX system are guaranteed. The profile of QMax FPX is customized to each application to ensure the best results.
