A solution for every sector
If you are a public facing organisation, heritage site, care home or other commercial enterprise, there are many advantages to having temperature control over areas such as guttering, pipework and critical access points. Costly damage, downtime and disruption can all be avoided.
In industrial and manufacturing too, essential pipework for fluid transfer, hazardous chemical transfer and safety measures such as fire mains are key areas to maintain control of temperatures.
Residential dwellings are also a core user of Trace Heating Systems, especially period properties and flat/apartment complexes.
Our experienced electricians are also able to complete underfloor heating requirements as part of your building’s temperature maintenance.
If it is your first time exploring the benefits of Trace Heating, please take a look at some of the more common requirements below.
Products – Trace Heating Systems
Please find below examples of our more commonly installed Trace Heating Systems. Please contact us for further information.
nVent Raychem Trace Heating Cabling for tank and storage vessel temperature maintenanceUsed to maintain fluid temperatures within tanks and storage vessels. Typical applications include frost protection, temperature maintenance, crystallisation prevention, and condensation protection, along with speciality purposes such as heat-up and agitation processes.
nVent Raychem Frost protection trace heat cables for pipeworkSelf-regulating heating cable, combined with thermal insulation, prevents water pipes, fire mains, sprinkler systems from freezing along with the prevention of fuel oil lines gelling. Durable, reliable and low power consumption. Products used for pipework include FS-A-2X, FS-B-2X, FS-C-2X and FS-C10-2X.
Raychem ACS-30-EU-UIT2 User interface terminalCentralised ACS-30 system user interface terminal used together with the ACS-PCM2-5 Power control panel. ACS-30 features a large LCD touch-screen display, easy programming, up to 52 power & control modules (PCMs) can be distributed throughout the site, remote temperature monitoring modules (RMM2s) and the ProtoNode multi-protocol gateway.
nVent Raychem frost protection for roofs, gutters and downpipesA self-monitoring De-icing system installed to the roof to ensure any snow & ice melts and the rooftop drains and downpipes will remain functional. Product codes for this application include GM-2X and GM-2XT, we can utilise this cable with a range of controllers from EMDR-10, GM-TA and a range of SBS Control panels.
nVent Raychem snow and ice melting systems for ramps, steps and critical access areasWorks within concrete, sand or asphalt. Comes complete with smart control and monitoring unit for energy efficiency and accurate user data. Product codes include EM2-XR, EM2-CM, EM2-CW for heating cables and mat solutions used in concrete.
Trace Heating Electronic thermostat with zoned connection box control interfaceMonitor and control the temperature settings for your trace heating cabling within individual zones.
Process Temperature Maintenance
Many manufacturing processes require the transport of liquid products from one area of a facility to another. Failure to accurately control their temperature could cause spoilage or solidification. It can also negatively affect the running of production equipment and increase maintenance requirements. Trace Heating Systems can be installed to a pipeline or a vessel, using the appropriate cable heating technology, control system and quality components.
As the most common application for Trace Heating, frost damage, including frozen pipework and broken fittings, is a concern during the cold winter months. Water damage and costly disruption to operations and processes can be avoided by installation of this low maintenance and highly effective system.
Trace heating cables maintain fluid temperatures by replacing the lost energy through pipe insulation. We consider all of the factors, including the location and requirements of the system, before delivering your purpose-built requirement.
Access areas such as ramps, driveways and walkways can become dangerous during harsh weather events, making them unusable and unsafe. Electric snow melting systems can prevent snow and ice build-up and leave you with a safe route for vehicles, machinery and people. These systems are extremely effective, low maintenance and can help keep your facilities fully operational during the winter months.
