Why Plumbing Engineers Appreciate Heat Traced Solutions

Posted by Raychem Winter Expert on Mar 28, 2018 8:09:38 AM

The effectiveness of plumbing systems in any building relies on the overlap of design expertise from mechanical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering. Building codes often require that domestic/potable water, fire suppression sprinklers, and grease waste systems must function reliably - in all circumstances - in order to be utilized.

Sensing Techniques to Consider Before Selecting a Heat Tracing System

Posted by Raychem Winter Expert on Mar 7, 2018 11:17:00 AM

When selecting and designing a trace heating system, different aspects such as cost, reliability or efficiency are often some of the first criteria to come to mind. But one of the most important aspects of this decision includes choosing which sensing method to rely on. Factors that can influence which sensing method is best for your application include whether or not the system is required to be controlled based on ambient or pipe surface temperature.

Avoid Clogged Disposal Drain Lines in Professional Kitchens

Posted by Raychem Winter Expert on Feb 22, 2018 9:53:22 AM

A high-performance kitchen means many things, but for the building’s Plumbing Engineer, one of the most important aspects to ensure optimal operations is to plan for an effective grease waste system. Grease interceptors in commercial kitchens are becoming increasingly popular as a means of preventing fat, oil and grease (FOG) from discharging into the sewer system.

Heat Trace Systems that Guarantee Temperature Maintenance on Critical Phenol Transfer Lines

Posted by Raychem Winter Expert on Jan 23, 2018 3:06:31 AM

As humans, we all know how to  prevent our body from overheating or undercooling due to variable weather conditions. When it’s winter and the temperature drops, we know to put on more layers and protective clothing to keep us warm. In autumn or spring, we put on lighter jackets to stay comfortable. In the summer, it’s warm enough outside that we don’t need any extra layers.

Proportional Ambient Sensing Control

Posted by Raychem Winter Expert on Jan 19, 2018 1:49:05 AM

One of the harshest characteristics of winter is the cold weather. With ambient temperatures falling past the freezing point, strict temperature maintenance and control of fluid systems is a challenge that must be addressed in order for operations to continue without interruption.
