Which practical information is needed to effectively protect your pipes against frost?
To protect your pipelines, pipes against frost, you must consider a set of parameters to effectively protect your networks. Whether it is water, chilled water, wastewater, sewage, hot water, hot water, city water, rainwater or other fluids to maintain frost.
To help you, we need to have a minimum of information about your pipes, to protect them from ice.
- Pipe type: Metal or Plastic ?
- Pipes Diameters
- Temperature Maintenance: Frost protection
- Minimum ambient temperature: usually -15 ° C, but we can adapt (-20 ° C, -30 ° C, or other)
- The maximum exposure temperature: Products may circulate at high temperatures (hot water heating, or other fluids that require antifreeze protection during production shutdown for example)
- The type of insulation is very important to heat loss calculation. More insulating the material is, less calories it needs . Glass wool, rockwool, Armaflex or Kaiflex, Styrofoam, Foamglass, Polystyrene, Polyurethane foam, Calcium silicate or other type of insulation.
- Insulation Thickness (mm):
- Number of Elbows: Determines the exact length of the heating cord on the pipe.
- Number of stitching: allows to determine the number of junction box (junction box) necessary for your application.
- Number of Valves: Determines the exact length of the heating cord on the piping.
- Number of Flanges: Determines the exact length of heating cord on the piping.
- Number of pumps: Determines the exact length of the heating cord on the piping.
- Number of instruments: Determines the exact length of the heating cord on the pipework.
- Supports: allows to determine the exact length of heating cord on the pipework.
- Is it an ATEX explosive zone or safety area?
- Supply voltage 12V / 24V / 110V / 230V / 400V / others?
