Temperature Maintenance

Temperature maintenance heat trace system

Use the proper heat-tracing cables to maintain fluids in pipes at the correct temperature.

nVent RAYCHEM temperature maintenance solutions are ideal for commercial applications that require fluids to be heated above ambient temperature, such as:  

  • Critical safety lines such as eyewash stations and safety showers. 2009 ANSI standards specify that the water temperature must be maintained between 60°F and 100°F.
  • Specialized hot water supply lines such as commercial laundries or kitchens.

Proven Temperature Control

Here is how RAYCHEM temperature maintenance cables can improve operations as a whole:

  • Reliable and efficient controls: the combination of self-regulating heating cables and advanced control units offers proven performance and can save up to 30% of the energy used by ambient control systems. 
  • Safety: Comes with an integrated ground-fault protection to satisfy national electrical code requirements and an automatic self-test feature which ensures that the ground-fault circuits are intact.
  • Cost savings: Eliminates congealing on the interior of the piping and avoids costly drain cleaning charges.

Simple Design

Our temperature maintenance cables can be installed on metal or plastic pipes and can be wrapped around valves and heat sinks. The self-regulating heat trace cables can also be installed above ground or on insulated buried pipes without over- or under-heating.

Self-Regulating Technology

RAYCHEM self-regulating electric heat trace cables automatically adjust their power output to compensate for ambient or pipe temperature changes. Heat is generated as electric current passes through the conductive polymer core between the conductors. As the temperature drops, the number of electrical paths through the core increases and more heat is produced. Conversely, as the temperature rises, the core has fewer electrical paths and less heat is produced.

Benefits

Simple design

RAYCHEM self-regulating heat trace cables can be installed on metal or plastic pipes and can be wrapped around valves and heat sinks and can be installed above ground or on insulated buried pipes without over- or under-heating.  Our online design tool simplifies the design process.

Safety

The RAYCHEM controllers have integrated 30mA ground-fault protection to satisfy national electrical code requirements.  For further reliability, our advanced control systems have an automatic self-test feature, which ensures that the ground-fault circuitry is intact.

Cost savings

With an efficient design, the RAYCHEM Temperature Maintenance system is meant to help save both on maintenance and energy costs in the long run.
