TRACEMAN – IMMERSION HEATER – TRACE HEATING TEST MONITORING UNIT
To fully comply with the requirements of BS 5306: Part 2: 1990, section 4, paragraph 18.104.22.168 regarding frost protection of sprinkler tanks, section 7, paragraph 34.3.9 concerning weekly checking of heating systems and TB210. TRACEMAN Ltd have introduced an IMMERSION HEATER AND TRACE HEATING TEST AND MONITORING UNIT.
The unit’s design automatically monitors the integrity of the tank immersion heater and the suction, infill or other pipe work trace heating circuits, at hourly intervals and the temperature sensor continuously, to provide a signal warning of any malfunction. This signal can be marshaled and transmitted to the remote alarm panel along with the other pump house signals to provide the audible and visual alarm functions required by the LPC.
Providing power is available the ‘supply on’ indicator will be illuminated. When the ambient temperature falls below 5 deg C, the sensor will operate and both the ammeters will show their respective full load current. This should match the adjustable red line pointers.
With higher ambient temperatures a ‘Test’ button is provided, this bypasses the thermostat and temporarily energises the circuits, again allowing a comparison of actual current to the set point.
Of course, any variance from the pointer, or the figures given in the system documentation, will indicate a fault condition.
