Trace Heating System For Long Pipelines

CALGEN traces are multi-stranded nichrome wire insulated with PTFE to give high temperature rating and weather proofing braided with glass yarn for efficient heat transfer and H type varnish coating . Ideally suited for fuel pipelines carrying Furnace/LSHS/Post FCC oils/Other viscous oils in process pipelines/storage tanks. CALGEN electrical heat tracing is a process of applying heat to the external surface of tank/pipe to maintain specific temperature of the contents.

Advantages For Electric Tracing Over Steam Tracing

  • COST

Electric tracing system is very much cheaper than steam tracing .Pipes,fittings & system used for steam generation not necessary for electric tracing. Hence saving factor of 40% to 50%.

Heat loss in electric tracing is negligible over steam tracing due to its high insulation.

Maintenance cost of electric tracing is almost negligible since there is no corrosion, leakage & pollution when compared to steam tracing.

Electric tracing system can be installed very easily when compared to steam tracing.
