QMax Industries” FTS (Fluid Tracing System) is designed to maximize the heat input of regular stainless steel or copper tube tracer by transforming the nature of the tracer from inefficient convective heat transfer to high-efficiency conductive heat transfer. The heating surface area is also increased to as much as three inches using highly conductive aluminum. A single tracer, with the addition of FTS, can achieve the same results as multiple tube tracers or even jacketed pipe, according to QMax. The profile of the FTS is customized to each individual pipe size and individual tracer size.
