Steam Tracing vs. Electric Heat Tracing

Posted by Raychem Winter Expert on Nov 29, 2018 2:00:00 PM

Deciding which method of heat tracing is best for your application is a tough decision that involves many factors. Cost, effectiveness, environment and more are all different factors to consider when making the decision. Typically, it comes down to one of two forms of heat tracing: steam or electric heat tracing. While steam tracing has historically been a more common form of heat tracing, advances in modern technology have made electric a desirable route to go as well.

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.

Managing Hot Surface Ignition Temperatures for Trace Heating in Explosive Atmospheres

Posted by Raychem Winter Expert on Dec 5, 2017 9:30:21 AM

Designing high temperature electric heat tracing systems in hazardous areas can be a difficult challenge, especially when process temperatures approach the area classification limit. This restricts the allowable temperature differential between what is heated and the surface temperature of the heaters.
