Trace Heating

We can provide a complete electrical trace heating service to protect exposed systems against freezing and also to maintain systems at the required operating temperatures.

Our systems use electric heater cable to replace the heat that is lost through the thermal insulation system. Replacing the lost heat allows the pipe and product inside the pipe to be kept at constant temperature. This will keep water from freezing and damaging the system or a liquid from setting and blocking the pipe work network. We provide a thermostat with each heater cable to control the temperature.

Our systems maintain water temperatures, reduce running costs and eliminate the requirement for continuously operating pumps which could, in time, overheat.

Our systems can also be used to protect against Legionella. Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by the inhalation of small droplets of contaminated water containing legionella. All man-made hot and cold water systems are likely to provide an environment where legionella can grow. Insulating cold water pipes to keep the water cold can prevent the legionella from growing.
