Heat Trace Engineering specialise in the Design, Supply &
Installation of Process Heating Systems from temperature maintenance
to ‘heat up’ requirements.
Heat Trace Cables
Heat Trace Engineering has access to a full range “Self
Regulating” Electric Heat Trace Cables, “Constant
Wattage” Cables and “Series Resistance”
Heating Cables in order to provide an electric heating system.
We also provide Silicone rubber Heating Panels, Mica Metal
Strip heaters and any type of specific industrial element
to tanks or vessels if required. Heat Trace Engineering also
has numerous methods of system control available, from mechanical
type capillary thermostats to control panel digital controllers
using thermocouple sensors.
The principal of temperature maintenance, is the design of
an electric heat trace system that ‘maintains’
the required temperature of the product in pipelines, tanks
or any type of vessel. Heat Trace Engineering has a very successful
record in design, supply & installation of temperature
maintenance projects including projects for many of the larger
multinational organizations such as; ExxonMobil, Quenos, Boral,
Shell, Pioneer, South Pacific Tyres, just to name a few.
The principal of ‘heat up’ is the design of an
electric heating system that is required to “heat up”
the product to a specific temperature over either period of
time or over a particular distance. The critical factor in
any given heat up situation is the amount of power required
in order to achieve the desired temperature. Heat Trace Engineering
has successfully completed numerous ‘heat up’
projects since being established over 20 years ago.
Turnkey Project Management
Heat Trace Engineering has access to many contracting fields
in order to undertake full turnkey project management. Aspects
include Insulation & Cladding, Electrical Contractors
and Piping & Mechanical contractors. We can take full
responsibility for all aspects of any given project, creating
a single communication channel between the client and ourselves.
Heat Trace Engineering has undertaken numerous ‘specialty
projects’, that requires unique design input, working
in with irregular operating constraints. Using this particular
experience, Heat Trace Engineering became the first company
in the southern hemisphere to successfully install an internal
line heating system within the pipeline.
