Construction, Petrochemical, Oil & Gas sectors rely on numerous electric trace heating & insulation designs for applications within their varied fields to perform vital operational functions. The design parameters typically range, but are not limited to ‘Frost Protection’ / ‘Processing’ functions. Trace heating cable can be easily adapted to suit complex pipework and or vessel component arrangements . Insulated jackets can be designed to incorporate trace heating cable, allowing the jackets to be easily removed and replaced for access purposes.
Designs require to be process sensitive whereby the identificaton of the correct trace heating system and controlling / monitoring equipment is critical. Our ‘In-House’ design team have the experience and expertise to develop efficient systems to suit your processing needs.
Hazardous zones in particular require specific Ex rated designs and components to comply with required regulatory standards. Our Ex systems are designed and installed by personnel who are Compex trained for this purpose.
Over the years Surface Heating Systems Ltd have accrued extensive knowledge of related field applications within these sectors, with a successful track record of completed projects on budget and on time.
Electrical trace heating cable and insulation
Frost protection is provided via a combination of electrical trace heating cable and insulation. It is key that the correct type of trace heating cable is chosen for the relevant application, be it self regulating or constant output. The method by which heat is required to be applied and the substance / fluid which is to be heated, are only some of the deciding factors which have to be taken into consideration when designing a trace heating and control / monitoring system. Our fully qualified engineers are competent in the installation of all field related trace heating applications, whether they be located in Non Hazardous or Hazardous (Ex) rated zones.
