Heat Traced Lines

Application

Heat traced lines or tubing bundle can be used for the transportation of liquids and gases and can provide either frost protection or the maintenance of process temperatures. They are mainly found in the chemical and petrochemical industry as analysing, instrument, sample extraction and process lines, steam lines, condensed water return lines and transport lines for fluid and gaseous substances in explosive environments.

We can provide tubing bundle or heat traced lines for:-

  • Temperatures from frost protection up to 200°C.
  • Smooth surface made of extremely weather-resistant material.
  • Up to 300 m in a single drum length.
  • Cut to length on site.

Types of Protection Jackets

The flexibility as well as the ambient conditions of the lines depends on the type of the protection jacket.

There are three different types:-

  • Rigid lines, sheathed with plastic (PVC, TPU or PA).
  • Flexible lines, encased with a corrugated plastic (PA) or metal tubing.
  • Highly flexible lines, sheathed with a plastic (PA) protection braiding.

Electrical Heating

Depending on the application of a line, there are various types of electrical heating units available, such as self-regulating heating elements, parallel heating elements and heating elements with fixed resistance.

Advantages

Time- and cost-saving installation:

  • As quick and easy to install as an energy cable, which reduces installation costs.
  • Available in very long lengths which reduce material costs due to fewer fittings and less material waste.
  • Reduced assembling steps.
  • Lower space requirement.
  • Maintenance-free and well protected against mechanical damage, abrasion and corrosion.
  • Approved for use in hazardous areas.
