Enhanced Tube Tracing

Maximize heat transfer from conventional tube tracing


Over many years of heating processes with ControTrace® bolt-on heating systems, CSI noticed there was a large gap between low temperature maintenance applications and those requiring critical temperature maintenance.  When conventional tube tracing / steam tracing doesn’t meet the process temperature needs, TraceBOOST® Tracing is a viable option where critical temperature maintenance systems like ControTrace® or fully jacketed pipe are not needed.

TraceBOOST® Tracing’s aluminum enhancer design conducts more heat from the outer circumference of the tubing into the process, greatly improving heat transfer efficiency. Adding TraceBOOST® to an existing, poorly-performing single tube tracing run will significantly improve performance.

Additionally, in applications using more than 1 tube tracing run, adding TraceBOOST® Tracing will reduce the quantity of tube tracing runs, which in turn reduces the amount of steam traps and manifold positions – saving money in upfront capital investment and long term operational costs. CSI’s TraceBOOST® delivers the technical and commercial value you’ve come to expect from CSI for over 50 years.
