Trace Heating

Delivering Process Improvement and Optimisation

Electrical trace heating can ultimately be the difference between the smooth running of a process and detrimental operational issues.  Poorly installed or low-quality trace heating could result in total – and costly – production downtime.

We provide Electrical Trace Heating Services to a vast range of industries for both hazardous and non-hazardous environments, from food processing, pharmaceutical manufacture and power generation, to water treatment, petrochemical and chemical plants.


Trace Heated Flexible Insulation Products

Trace heating cable can be sewn into pockets on the inside face of a flexible insulation cover to add temperature maintenance capabilities to the product.  Junction boxes and thermostats can also be incorporated into the jacket to provide a total heated solution in both hazardous and non-hazardous areas.  Covers can be individually tailored to suit: gas bottles, oil drums, critical valves, instrumentation, and IBC containers.


Advanced Service Delivery

With over 30 years’ experience in industry and a team of CompEx trained engineers, the knowledge and processes we have developed in the more hazardous sectors are now applied to all projects to ensure the highest level of safety at all times.  In addition to safety, this approach ensures that the most suitable product is chosen, the most experienced personnel are employed to perform the job, and the right solution is provided for the client.

We have successfully completed projects ranging from bespoke temperature maintenance systems, to frost protection systems installed across whole power plants for both new installations and on-going maintenance contracts.  We work in partnership with the client to deliver a full turnkey service: consultations, design, material specifications, installation, testing, commissioning, and maintenance.  All projects are provided with design drawings and supporting documentation to ensure plant operators understand the system installed and where key parts are situated.

We offer a full range of trace heating tapes, from constant wattage to self-regulating and mineral insulated elements.  Our range of control solutions covers basic control thermostats through to remote control panels with digital temperature readouts.  We also understand that insulation is a vitally important contribution to the efficiency of trace heating systems and having this service available in-house for our clients allows them to use the cost, time, and project management benefits associated with dealing with a single contractor.

Our service doesn’t end after an installation is commissioned.  We know that trace heating systems need to be consistently monitored and maintained for optimisation.  As such, we offer additional surveys and testing of systems, and winterisation services, to provide a diagnostic report.  This identifies potential future issues and allows proactive maintenance and repair to minimise the risk of costly downtime.
