Trace Heating for Single Pipe Domestic Hot Water Service Systems.
Increasingly designers are specifying single pipe domestic hot water systems in lieu of existing circulatory types (flow & return).
In commercial and industrial applications the remote hot water delivery point may be hundreds of metres away from the hot water generator/boiler resulting in lengthy delays drawing off cold water.
Electrical Trace Heating cable provides instant hot water with legionella control and contributes to the overall cost savings achieved by replacing alternative re-circulation systems.
The combination of trace heating and the correct thermal insulation maintains a thermal balance where the heat output from the trace heating matches the heat loss from the pipe. Self-limiting or regulating heating tapes have been developed and are very successful in this application.
