Custom Heat Traced Jackets for Freeze Protection
and viscosity control offer quick and easy install and removal.

Traced Heating Jackets are clean, modular, low watt density heaters. These custom designed, insulated Heating Jackets, use Commercial Heat Tracing Cable for their heating elements. The robust, stitched construction configures into preformed shapes with Self Regulating Heating Cable inside, including the necessary hardware and termination fittings to maintain approvals for Hazardous and Non-Hazardous areas.

Freeze protection is necessary to keep liquids flowing when weather conditions are not ideal. Viscosity Control, to flow thick liquids from oil to wax and chocolate, requires heating for proper temperature maintenance.

Whereas traditional Electric Heat Tracing methods, where Self Regulating Heating Cable is installed directly on pipes and valves with insulation is permanent, Heat Traced Jackets offer the advantage of being able to be removed and reinstalled, when maintenance of the system is necessary.
Standard and Special features:

Jacket sizes: Small Traced Heating Jackets are sometimes difficult because of the ability to stow the lead junction hardware, and the lack of flexibility of the cable heater. However, typically Jackets may be designed to fit down to ¾ inch diameter pipes and fittings. Large Heating Jackets are limited by weight, typically 50lbs (23kg), but may be constructed in a modular fashion to fit large surfaces using several Jackets.

Heat Capability: Freeze protection, Process temperature maintenance similar to heat trace cable systems.

Heated zones: For applications requiring varying heat densities, multiple heated zones may be incorporated in a single Jacket. Each zone would include power leads, and temperature sensors.

Temperature sensors: Built in thermal sensors such as RTDs or Thermocouples can be installed for process temperature measurement, or directly on the heating element for sensing limit temperature.

Closures: In addition to typical Velcro® flap and D ring strap, or lacing hook closure methods, quicker convenient snaps or Delrin® Clips may be specified for ease of use.
