Pipe Surface Heating
Pipe surface heating is used to maintain or raise the temperature of pipes and vessels. Trace heating takes the form of an electrical heating element run in physical contact along the length of a pipe. The pipe should then be covered with thermal insulation to retain heat losses from the pipe. The heat generated by the element then maintains the temperature of the pipe. Trace Heating may be used to protect pipes from freezing or to maintain process temperatures for piping that must transport substances that solidify at ambient temperatures. We are able to install the self-regulating pipe surface heating cables that will ensure 100% operation of the facility even in freezing conditions. Another use for this system can be 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 our systems with Digitech Thermostats enabling complete control of the protective systems. Thermal insulation is then applied to the network to protect and enable the system to operate effectively.
