More information:


Thermon SafeTrace SLS-IT consists of a metallic tracer tube enveloped in composite materials designed to reduce thermal conductance, thereby minimizing heat transfer. This technology ensures SafeTrace delivers a controlled yet predictable heat output along a traced pipe, effectively preventing hot spots and overheating. Unlike bare metallic tracers that often lead to energy wastage and place undue stress on pipe systems by elevating temperatures beyond necessary or desired levels, SafeTrace proves to be a more efficient alternative.

The tracers of SafeTrace SLS-IT are equipped with a safety yellow identification jacket, indicating materials that may pose potential dangers such as steam, in accordance with ASME/ANSI A13.1-1996 standards. Additionally, all SafeTrace IT tracers conform to ASTM Std C-1055, which mandates that human skin temperature must not exceed 58°C when in contact with a hot surface for five seconds.

Supplied in extended-length coils, SafeTrace SLS-IT can be seamlessly installed, running continuously from the steam supply manifold, along the pipe, and extending to the condensate return manifold.


  • Substantially diminishes the likelihood of burns
  • Achieves steam savings of up to 35% when compared to bare metal tube usage
  • Ensures predictable heat transfer with no occurrence of hot spots or overheating
  • Accelerates installation times by enabling continuous operation from the steam supply to the condensate collection system
  • Facilitates longer circuit lengths, leading to a reduction in the number of traps needed
  • Offers straightforward tape-on installation, eliminating the need for steel banding
  • Provides prompt delivery for added convenience
