Here is the assembly for the pipe.
2 Tees, 2 Plugs, 1 18 inch pipe, 1 pipe heater, + insulation.
The thermal fuse is to be attached in series with one of the leads and taped to the outside of the insulation.
wow very interesting idea. makes me want to start on my project now... Where are you going to be sourcing the heating wrap from?
Step 1: Build the pipe assembly
Step2: Wrap with the pipe heating element. Tie off both ends.
Step 3: Insulate (I apply the layer as 2 long strips, 1st Strip)
Step 3b: Other Strip
Step3c: I secure the insulation with aluminum tape.
- Does the heat tape come with it's own tie offs?
- Does all 8 feet of the tape really wrap just 18" of pipe?
