Designing high temperature electric heat tracing systems in hazardous areas can be a difficult challenge, especially when process temperatures approach the area classification limit. This restricts the allowable temperature differential between what is heated and the surface temperature of the heaters.
Electric Heat Tracing is used in many process industries to maintain process fluids at the desired temperatures. A look at five common uses of heat-tracing applications can help users select the most appropriate technology for their application. These are the most commonly encountered needs in the industrial sector.
