Glycol Heat Tracing Keeping the right temperature
Glycol heat tracing is often used in industry to protect pipes, boilers, pumps, and other equipment from frost in winter, or to keep warm water at required temperature. It involves heating the installations by means of 1/2″ SS tubing containing heated glycol that is strapped to the pipe or equipment, transferring the heat of the glycol to the application.
Glycol heat tracing can best be summarized as a series of closed loop tubing circuits that tracethe outside of various sizes, and types of process piping found in the oiland gas plants all throughout Canada. In addition to tracing processpiping, we also run our tracing lines to contour all different kinds ofdevices and various makes and models of valve work found in the oil and gasindustry.

In the event that we experience a less than desirable weather condition, or even if extreme weather conditions set in, we can rest assured that both our plant’s pipes and process equipment are all operating at their optimum peak performance due to temperatures that are now being properly maintained.
