Pipe Tracing and Freeze Protection Systems
Protecting pipes from freezing and rupturing during the cold winter months can save
businesses and homeowners from thousands of dollars of water damage. ProLine Radiant
offers industry leading pipe trace solutions that can be installed quickly and easily.
ProLine Radiant’s pipe tracing systems utilize self-regulating parallel circuit heat
cables to provide the best solution for basic freeze protection applications. The cable’s
self-regulating characteristics mean that when the ambient temperature rises, the
electrical resistance increases and the consumption of electricity decreases, ensuring
energy-efficient operation. And the cable will not overheat or burnout - even when
touching or overlapping.
Also, because of the self-regulating properties, a thermostat may not be necessary
in some applications. With the optional outer jacket, the heating cable is resistant to
watery and inorganic chemicals and protected against abrasion and impact damage. The
self-regulating properties exist throughout the length of the cable, thereby allowing
the pipe tracing cable to adjust the power output to the varying conditions along the
length of the pipe. Contact ProLine to learn more about the pipe freeze protection options that are
Self-Regulating Heat Cable
The ProLine HTM self-regulating pipe tracing heat cable features advanced technology
that results in highly effective, energy efficient operation. The UL listed cable provides
safe, reliable heat tracing for freeze protection or temperature maintenance of pipes,
valves, flanges, etc. It is suitable for use on small plastic or metal pipes and instrument
tubing in residential or light commercial and similar applications.
Pipe Trace Heat Cable Features Include:
Energy Efficiency – Automatically varies its power output in response to pipe temperature changes.
Easy Installation - Can be cut to any length required on site (up to max circuit length) so there’s no wasted cable. The power connection, splice, tee and end seal kit will reduce installation time.
Low Cost – Less installation cost than steam tracing; less maintenance expense and less downtime.
Safe / Durable – Does not overheat or burn out, even when touching or overlapping.
Versatility – Suitable for use in non-hazardous, hazardous and corrosive environments.
Top Performance – The certifications and requirements achieved by ProLine pipe tracing cable ensure top performance and rugged durability.
Commercial and Industrial Pipe Tracing
Large commercial and industrial buildings are especially susceptible to the damaging effects
of cold temperatures on piping. Often, industrial facilities are unheated throughout the winter
months, raising the chances of broken pipes, which can dramatically impact productivity and
revenue. Heat tracing is the most reliable and affordable pipe freeze protection method
available on the market today.
The hospitality industry relies on properly functioning, well-maintained piping. A break
in a pipe can result in lost customers and long term damage to the company's public image.
ProLine's energy efficient pipe tracing systems provide reliable pipe freeze protection, process
temperature maintenance and other heat trace solutions so your business can keep its customers
and livelihood intact.
Long Line Heating
Commercial and industrial facilities incorporate long line heating to ensure the proper flow
of fluids through piping over long distances. Piping outside of heated areas are the most
susceptible to the effects of cold weather. Much of the same technology employed in industrial
long pipe systems is used for commercial applications.
