Unbraided Trace Heating Tapes

Unbraided Trace Heating Tapes

In cold ambient temperatures, there is often a need to heat equipment, including: pipelines, pipe junctions, pumps, gearboxes, etc.. In many such applications there is inadequate space to insert a heating element, or it may be impractical to do so due to location or length of pipe, etc.. In such cases, or as a supplement to other heating methods, we recommend the use of trace-heating tapes. The tapes which we stock are in the main temperature sensitive, generally controlling the temperature of the equipment to be heated at a temperature of +5°C. we stock both self-regulating tapes and unregulated tapes. The self-regulating tapes are manufactured such that if more heat is needed at one part of the application, there will be a higher heat output locally to accommodate the requirement. As the tape is regulated in this way, there will be no ‘hot spots’ in the tape which can otherwise cause tape failure. Unregulated tapes and heating wire tend to be used in applications where a higher temperature needs to be maintained, e.g. chemical processing, or where a larger amount of heat is required over a relatively short period, e.g. de-icing a frozen valve. We can recommend and supply suitable tapes in whatever length is needed to suit the application in question, and in most cases recommend that lagging is fitted around the application to reduce heat loss. Contact us for information on any particular application or for general literature.
