Raychem winter safety and performance solutions are helping enable one of the largest Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) projects in the world.
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.

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.
Electric Heat Tracing is used in many process industries to maintain process fluids at the desired temperatures. A look at five common uses of heat-tracing applications can help users select the most appropriate technology for their application. These are the most commonly encountered needs in the industrial sector.
