Reservoir, tank and vessel heating panel Thermon FlexiPanel
The RT FlexiPanel is a self-contained, high performance flexible heating panel designed specifically for use on metallic tanks or vessels. Designed to provide heat outputs at 2 watts per square inch (3,100 watts per square meter) or less, the RT FlexiPanel distributes heat evenly over the entire panel surface. 1 The low profile flexible design of the panel permits rapid, troublefree installation using the mounting kit available from Thermon. To ensure multiple flow paths for electrical current to pass, the RT FlexiPanel utilizes a parallel circuit design based on a stamped high temperature alloy heating element. This design eliminates the burnout potential common with series wire-based designs. The rugged construction of the RT FlexiPanel includes a tough metal jacket that provides mechanical protection during handling and installation. The panel’s heating element is further protected from vibration and moisture by sandwiching it in a heat-laminated layer of silicone rubber that provides cushion and a watertight seal.
