Discover our Trace Heating solutions, featuring cutting-edge technology for efficient freeze protection and temperature maintenance in pipes, gutters, downpipes, valves and more.

Trace heating, also known as heat tracing or electric heat tracing, is a system used to maintain or raise the temperature of pipes, vessels, and instrumentation lines. It involves applying electrical heating elements in close contact with the pipe or equipment needing temperature maintenance. The primary purpose of trace heating is to prevent freezing, ensure fluid viscosity is maintained, prevent condensation, or keep products at a specific temperature during manufacturing processes.

The system works by compensating for heat losses that occur through thermal transmission, ensuring that the temperature of the contents remains within desired parameters. Trace heating can be self-regulating, meaning the heating cables automatically adjust their power output to compensate for temperature changes. This feature makes it an energy-efficient solution for temperature maintenance needs across various industries, including oil and gas, chemical processing, water treatment, and food and beverage manufacturing.

In essence, trace heating provides a controlled and targeted way to apply heat, ensuring safety, efficiency, and reliability in temperature-sensitive applications.
