Electrical underfloor heating mats for frost protection
Frost protection systems for driveways, ramps, pathways and other outdoor surfaces and offer services nationwide.
in cold climates, water or chemical pipework often needs to be heat traced to prevent freezing. Thermal insulation alone is incapable of preventing freezing. A 25mm bore pipe at 5°C having 25mm thick insulation will reach freezing point within one hour in an ambient temperature of -10°C.
steam at, say 150°C, is not a viable fuel source for simple freeze protection and of course, condensate returns may themselves freeze. Electric heat tracing having a low power output is the most convenient and efficient option.
For installations of, up to perhaps 500 meter of pipework, parallel resistance self regulating or constant power heating cables are chosen which can be cut to length when required at site. When longer circuit lengths are required, series resistance cables can be used.
