Trace Heating In London
We install self-regulating, Trace heating cable for frost protection to pipework exposed to low temperatures and for maintaining the desired service temperatures for pipework systems. Trace heating is a system 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 typical uses for this system are sprinkler pipework systems and this will ensure 100% operation of the facility even in freezing conditions. It can also be used to provide hot water, 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 maintains the temperature of the pipe to make sure it doesn’t go below a set temperature. Trace heating is used to protect pipes from freezing. Every pipe or vessel is subject to heat loss when its temperature is greater than ambient temperatures. Thermal insulation reduces the rate of heat loss but doesn’t eliminate it. Trace heating maintains the temperature above freezing or at the temperature you want it set to. All of our systems are installed with Digitech Thermostats enabling complete control of the protective systems.
