Trace heating tape is also known as unregulated tape and heating wire.
Used in applications where a high temperature needs to be maintained. For example in chemical processing, maintaining temperature in a bi-fuel tank or where a larger amount of heat is required over a relatively short period. For Instance de-icing a frozen valve.
We supply all trace heating tapes terminated and ready for use. Where needed, a control thermostat with probe to ensure the correct temperature is maintained.
We can recommend and supply suitable trace heating tape in whatever length is needed. It is recommended that insulation is fitted around the application to reduce heat loss.
The self-regulating tape is manufactured as such, that if more heat is needed at one part of the application, there will be a higher heat output locally to accommodate that requirement. As the tape is regulated, there will be no ‘hot spots’ in the tape which would otherwise cause tape failure.
Please contact us for information on any particular application or for more information.
