Trace heating systems are based on a flexible, cable-like, heating
element which is positioned near or next to the pipe or engineering area
which needs to be kept at a constant temperature. This technology
supplements the insulation normally included with such systems where the
temperature fluctuation may still drop below minimum tolerances.
Thermal insulation will reduce the rate of heat loss,
however trace heating
is often essential to maintain the desired temperature, particularly in
no flow conditions.
The most common applications are Freeze
Water Service temperature maintenance and Process
temperature maintenance in a wide variety of
applications: Fuel Oil, Caustic soda, Liquid Sugar, Fats
and soaps, Bitumen, Paints and Lacquers, Polymers, Acids
