Heat Trace

What is Heat Trace?


Heat Tracing is a system used to maintain or raise the temperature of pipes and vessels. Electric heating is achieved using a resistive cable installed on the pipe or tank wall.

Today’s Heating Trace technology uses a self-regulating polymer that controls the power delivered to the process. When the ambient temperature drops, the polymer creates conductive paths that allow the current to flow and heat. As the ambient temperature rises, the conductive pathways begin to separate, causing less current to pass through.

Requirements for electrical tracing systems vary according to the particularities of the project and its application. To meet these needs, ThermoFlow has a wide range of electric heating trace.
