Simply put, electric heat tracing is a system designed to keep your tank from freezing. Heat tracing works to preserve the temperature, increase the temperature or compensate for heat losses in pipes or storage vessels. The heat generated by the heating cable maintains a temperature to prevent freezing. Typically, trace heating involves an electrical heating cable that is placed around the tank, and then covered in thermal insulation to stop heat loss and retain the heat line system’s temperature. Heating cables, or trace heating systems, offer a variety of freeze protection applications.
We use an advanced, self-regulating heating cable system for efficient and reliable freeze protection, that is certified for direct earth burial and wet locations. It is supplied job-ready as a plug-in unit with GFCI protection with a 4ft. (1.2m) power lead and is factory finished to length, making the need for an electrician to provide on-site power and complex terminations is eliminated.
