Able to supply hot water instantly at the point of use with minimal installation costs, even changes in pipe diameters, flow rates and use patterns will not affect the performance of these heating cables. Even variations in ambient or water temperature are compensated for as the heating cable adjusts its heat output along the entire length of a heat traced pipe.
These HSX heating cables run from a simple design. A WarmTrace system replaces the complex recirculation network of return pipes, circulating pumps and balancing valves. For each hot water supply line, the hot water maintenance temperature needs only be matched with the corresponding color-coded cable and insulate to ensure the desired water temperature is maintained.
As the WarmTrace system replaces recirculation piping, it also eliminates the costs of continuously operating pumps, deliberately overheating the water, and maintaining the recirculation system.
Furthermore, the WarmTrace system also offers potential water savings since the heat tracing can be installed up to the point of use, meaning there is now more wastage as users wait for hot water to come through.
