Trace Heating

Heat tracing systems are used wherever stored and transported materials cannot be adequately protected against heat loss by insulation. Heat tracing is a heating system that is installed along pipelines, tanks or other system components to protect them from frost damage or to maintain process temperatures.

In combination with insulation, electric trace heating provides an efficient and reliable solution for temperature maintenance and frost protection in various applications. This not only ensures the safety of the process, but also prevents damage to the system.

General Information

Heat Loss

Heat losses are the unwanted release of thermal energy from a system to the environment. These losses occur due to temperature differences between systems and their ambient environment. Heat losses are unavoidable, but suitable measures can prevent them and reduce energy costs. These measures include suitable thermal insulation in combination with a trace heating system.
Formula for calculating the heat loss of pipes

Qv= (2 * pi * lambda * (Th - Tmin)) / (ln * (D/d))
Qv heat loss(W/m)
lambda thermal conductivity(W/mK)
Th  maintain temperature (°C)
Tmin minimum ambient temperature (worst case °C)
ln natural logarithms
D pipe diameter with insulation(mm) (pipe diamter+ 2 x insulation thickness)
d outer pipe diamter without insualtion(mm)

Formula for calculating the heat loss of tanks, vessels

the formula to calculate the heat loss of a tank it similar:
Qv= (A * lambda * (Th - Tmin)) / s
Qv= total heat loss(W)
A = total tank surface ( m²)
s = insulation thickness (meter!)
(all other see above)

Thermal Insulation

Thermal insulation plays a crucial role in a trace heating system as it helps to maximize the efficiency of the system and minimize heat loss. Effective thermal insulation helps to keep the heat generated where it is needed and prevents unnecessary heat loss to the environment.
The correct selection and installation of thermal insulation is therefore crucial to meet the heat-tracing requirements and ensure efficient thermal insulation.
The following points should be considered when selecting insulation:

  • Thermal properties
  • Mechanical and chemical resistance
  • Moisture resistance
  • Flammability
