NIC provide a complete service for industrial thermal insulation projects, providing complete tailor made solutions to meet our clients individual requirements.

For many of our clients trace heating is an important aspect of the project. 

About Trace Heating

Trace heating or surface heating is used when the temperature of pipes or vessels must be maintained at or above a certain level. To achieve this an electrical heating element is run in physical contact with the length of the pipe prior to  the pipe being covered in thermal insulation to retain the heat. Trace heating may be used to protect pipes from freezing, to maintain a constant flow temperature in hot water systems, or to maintain process temperatures for piping that must transport substances that solidify at ambient temperatures. 

The combination of trace heating and the correct thermal insulation for the operating ambient temperature maintains a thermal balance where the heat output from the trace heating matches the heat loss from the pipe.

Our Trace Heating Services

NIC design supply and install trace heating in accordance to  the relevant British Standard (BS 6351). We’ll do all the necessary heat loss calculations and advise on suitable insulation products including a range of sheet metal finishes. More information about our industrial insulation services.
