Heat tracing can be used to protect exposed pipework from freezing. The most
common usage is to ensure prevention of freezing of pipework for water services.
However the term frost protection more widely referes to maintain pipe contents
at temperatures to stoped the contents solidifying.
The mot efficent system for forst protection of water pipework is to use a
self-regulating tracer in conjunction with an ambient temperature switching
system. HTS provide efficent and cost effective designs for small and large
scale frost protection systems to minimise material and installation cost and to
ensure that the installed system is as energy efficient as possible
here to see a typical layout of a water frost protection system.
As with any heat tracing system correct system design ensures the most cost
effective project spend. Ready reckoners or "catch-all" products are
commonly used to produce material bills for frost protection of water pipework.
As a consequence systems are often oversized and incur needless power
consumption. You can issue an online enquiry for frost
Traced pipework for frost protection duties must be thermally lagged. However
the thickness and type of lagging required will be defined by the heat-tracing
used. HTS can provide the optimum heat tracing design and minimise your
spend on thermal lagging.
Our system control products can be used to provide remote montoring of frost
protection systems and integrate with BMS systems.

necessarily have to be spiral wound on pipework
