Trace Heating In Hampshire
Our brilliant team can provide your pipework systems with very effective trace heating in Hampshire. We install the self-regulating, trace heating cable for frost protection to pipework exposed to low temperatures and for maintaining desired service temperatures for pipework systems. This system is used to maintain or raise the temperature of pipes and vessels using heat tracing cables. Trace heating takes the form of an electrical heating element run in physical contact along the length of a pipe. The pipe is usually covered with thermal insulation to retain heat losses from the pipe. The heat generated by the element then maintains the temperature of the pipe.
The typical uses of this system are on your sprinkler pipework systems to ensure 100% operation of the facility even in freezing conditions. 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.

The heat generated by the element then maintains the temperature of the pipe. Trace heating can be used to protect the pipes from freezing and causing damaging the pipe. Trace heating first starting being produced in the 1930s, since then the technology has improved dramatically to be more effective and efficient with the energy it uses. The system is installed with a Digitech Thermostat enabling complete control of the protective system.
