Pipe Freeze Protection

Industrial heat trace systems prevent freezing of fluids in pipes for a variety of industrial applications and environments, including hazardous, nonhazardous, and steam cleanable areas.

Pipe Freeze Protection – A Complete Heat Management System Approach

nVent Thermal Management offers pipe freeze protection as a complete heat management system, which includes the selection of industrial heat trace technologies and advanced control system technologies, in addition to turnkey services.


Elements of Industrial Heat Trace Systems
  • Electric heat trace cables - Industrial heat trace cables maintain the temperature of non-flowing fluids by replacing the heat lost through the thermal insulation on pipes, vessels and associated equipment.
  • Advanced control systems - devices such as thermostats, controllers, and electric panels that monitor and/or control heat trace cables to help maintain the temperature of the fluid through a heat traced pipe.
  • Components and accessories - items for making electrical connections and properly completing the installation, such as end terminations, glass tape and warning labels.
We can supply the individual components, provide engineering design services, site services, and even install and maintain the entire system. 

When our advanced products are combined with our services, you get an integrated solution that is strategically planned and executed for an optimum heat management system (HMS). By managing and executing all aspects of the heat trace system design and installation, we provide a single interface to your project team.
