Tank Heating

Tank heating systems are used for freeze protection and maintaining fluid temperatures in small, medium and large-volume, industrial storage tanks and vessels. Typical applications for tank heating systems and vessels include:

  • Freeze protection of low and medium viscosity fluids (e.g. water, ammonia)
  • Temperature maintenance for medium viscosity fluids (e.g. oils, resins)
  • Crystallization prevention (e.g. caustic soda)
  • Condensation prevention (e.g. fly ash in conical bases of silos)
  • Specialty applications that include heat-up, high viscosity fluids and agitation applications

Frequently asked questions

Can I use heat trace on plastic pipes?

Yes, when using trace heating on plastic pipes ensure that ATE- 180 aluminium tape is used to help disperse the heat around the pipe.
