Trace Heating

We provide electrical trace heating services to a vast range of industries, from food processing, pharmaceutical manufacture and energy projects, to water treatment and petrochemical plants.

Having worked within these industries for over 25 years, the knowledge and processes we have developed in the more hazardous sectors are now applied to all projects to ensure the highest level of safety at all times. In addition to safety, this approach ensures that the most suitable product is chosen, the most experienced personnel are employed to perform the job, and the best solution is provided for the client.

As there are a broad range of applications for trace heating, Powertherm approach each project individually so that the client is provided the right solution for their problem.

We offer a full range of trace heating tapes, from constant wattage to self regulating and mineral insulated elements. Our range of control solutions covers basic control thermostats through to remote control panels with digital temperature read outs.
