Industrial Pipe Freeze Protection

Protect Against Frozen Pipes

In cold locations, industrial pipe insulation alone cannot keep water in pipes from freezing. As fluids freeze they tend to expand, and with nowhere to go they can cause pipes to break. nVent RAYCHEM pipe heat trace systems prevent costly damages to buildings, facilities, avoid down time and keep people safe from harm.

Reliable Freeze Protection Solutions

Electric heat tracing systems keep non-flowing water in pipes, pumps and associated equipment from freezing by replacing the heat lost through the thermal insulation. nVent RAYCHEM pipe heat  trace systems are energy efficient, reliable and performant. Our freeze protection solutions are typically applied in industrial facilities: 

  • Water supply and drain lines
  • Firefighting and sprinkler systems
  • Safety showers and eye-washers
  • Comprehensive Technology

Our heating cable solutions in various technologies provide heat when and where you need it. 

  • Self-regulating technology: cables automatically adjust their power output to compensate for temperature changes of the pipe.
  • Power-limiting technology: ideal for pipe freeze protection applications requiring high power output and/or high temperature exposure.
  • Mineral insulated technology: Used for high power output, high exposure temperatures, or extreme resistance to environmental corrosives.
