High-Performance Glycol Tracing

The QMax Lite Heat Tracing design maximizes the heat input of regular stainless steel or copper tube tracer and offers guaranteed results.


QMax LITE is designed for light-duty steam tracing and most glycol tracing applications.  QMax LITE transforms the nature of the tracer from inefficient convective heat transfer to high-efficiency conductive heat transfer.


The heating surface area is increased to as much as 1.5 inches (38mm) using highly conductive aluminum. A single tracer, with the addition of QMax LITE, can achieve the same results as 2-3 tube tracers. This saves time and money on capital projects and

reduces long-term maintenance cost

QMax LITE Offers Consistent Results whether the goal is:
    •    Process Temperature Maintenance
    •    Minimum Pipe Wall Temperature Maintenance
    •    Light-duty Process Heat-Up
    •    Critical Process Freeze Protection

QMax Industries models the thermal characteristics of each application so the results of the QMax LITE steam tracing system are guaranteed. The profile of QMax LITE is customized to each individual pipe size to ensure the best results for each application.


Please fill out our QMax LITE Evaluation Questionnaire and send it to your sales representative for individual attention. We treat every application uniquely to offer the right solution for you.
