Electrical Heat Tracing

We install self-regulating, trace heating cables to pipework systems that are exposed to the harsh weather conditions we get during the winter months. It is used for frost protection and can maintain the desired service temperature of a system if needed. This system runs in physical contact along the length of a pipe. The pipe must then be covered with thermal insulation to retain heat losses from the pipe. The thermal insulation will reduce the rate at which heat is lost but won’t eliminate it as heat transfer is an inevitable process that can only be slowed down. Sprinkler systems benefit from this as you have pipes running outside and protect them from freezing conditions to ensure 100% operation of the facility.

You can also use this system for hot water services buildings such as hotels and hospitals can benefit from our systems which enable them to maintain an instant supply of hot water to 60 degrees centigrade. It will also protect against legionella. We install all our systems with Digitech thermostats enabling complete control of the protective systems.
