Racor Offers Literature On Its Self-Regulating Diesel Fuel Line Heater

Racor Industries, Inc., of Modesto, Calif., is offering literature on its Thermoline™ Self-Regulating Diesel Fuel Line Heater.

The text of the literature, which contains a performance chart, specification table, photographs and drawings to complement the descriptive material presented, explains that the heater is constructed of a conductive polymeric core extruded between two parallel copper bus wires. At low temperatures, electrical current flows through the core between conductors, generating heat. As the temperature rises, the electrical resistance of the core material increases, reducing current flow and decreasing heat output.

This infinitely reversible process occurs independently at each point along the heater strip and prevents overheating.

Diesel engines fitted with the Racor Thermoline Diesel Fuel Line Heater are said to be able to operate year-round on less expensive, higher BTU No. 2 diesel fuel. Overnight engine idling to keep fuel warm is not necessary.

The Thermoline heater comes fully assembled and ready to install with a complete accessory kit that includes circuit breaker, solenoid, dashboard switch, hardware and easy-to-follow instructions.
