Heat Trace

MICO Electrical Systems LTD install all Electric trace heating, also known as electric
heat tracing, heat tape or surface heating, is a system used to maintain or raise the
temperature of pipes and vessels. Trace heating takes the form of an electrical
heating element run in physical contact along the length of a pipe. The pipe must then
be covered with thermal insulation to retain heat losses from the pipe. Heat
generated by the element then maintains the temperature of the pipe. Trace heating
may be used to protect pipes from freezing, or to maintain process temperatures for
piping that must transport substances that solidify at ambient temperatures. Electric
trace heating cables are an alternative to steam trace heating where steam is not
available or unwanted. The UK and Ireland are after experiencing the worst winter in
decades which have had a detrimental effect on businesses throughout the region.
