Operations can come to a stop -- and products can be damaged or compromised -- when temperature-sensitive products inside a pipeline become too viscous or begin to freeze.
Long pipeline heating is necessary for pipe freeze protection, condensation prevention, viscosity control and temperature maintenance of transfer lines between processing plants, storage tanks and transportation facilities.
Longline heating is complex, requiring long electrical circuit lengths - usually with a single electrical power point and balanced temperature distribution profiles that are resistant to extreme environmental conditions.
Typical applications include:
We offer a wide range of proven solutions, with lengths up to 15 miles from a single power source:
We offer many proven longline heating solutions as part of a complete heat management system. Our longline heating systems include the selection of appropriate pipe heat-tracing technologies, advanced control and monitoring systems as well as engineering, procurement and various onsite services. This helps you to stay on schedule and ensures an optimal heat trace system for worry-free operation.
With decades of expertise and hundreds of installations worldwide, we know how to handle any type of longline project. Our team designs complete solutions, including power distribution, pipe supports, insulation and central monitoring capabilities.
Our advanced controllers with multiple sensor inputs keep the pipeline at the right temperature. Fiber optic sensing provides continuous temperature profiles. Central monitoring gives full visibility, and allows for trending analyses and quick site interventions
