Freeze Protection

Freeze protection during cold weather can prevent damage to exposed valves, pumps, pipes, bearings, filter housing, and other industrial objects. When these parts freeze, they typically become unusable, and expensive to replace. The freezing and damage causes extended and unwanted downtown and in some cases, costly repairs. Production teams cannot afford to allow the weather to restrict their productivity, and need a solution to remedy these problems quickly and safely.

If you’re looking for “heat tape” to protect your pipes, then you may keep coming across the wrong product for freeze protection. The correct term is heat trace cable, but we know what you’re looking for when you contact us for help.

What is an ice dam?

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas.

There are hundreds of applications that can benefit from freeze protection. Contact us to discuss a heat tracing system for your home or commercial buildings. We stock everything from connection kits to heat trace monitor lights. We also have control panels that can be designed to run any size application, even in hazardous areas. Call us today.
