There is nothing worse than being without water - especially in winter. Extremely low ambient temperatures can cause liquid in water pipes to freeze and swell, resulting in the bursting of the pipe. The aftermath includes costly repairs and the inconvenience of being without water. For residential applications, a pipe freeze protection system offers a simple solution to keep pipes from freezing.

Pipe Freeze Protection Heat Trace System

Raychem Thermal Management uses electric heat trace cables for preventing pipes from freezing. Our pipe freeze protection options include attaching a nVent RAYCHEM heat trace cable to the exterior of a pipe, or installing an In-Pipe cable system on the inside of a pipe.Pipe-Freeze-Protection-Residential.jpg

Preventing frozen pipes by heat tracing the exterior of a pipe:

For above ground pipes where the heat trace cable should be attached to the exterior of the pipe, we offer the following options: FrostGuard, Frostex, WinterGard, and XL Trace (CR Jacket).  For below ground pipes where the heat trace cable should be attached to the exterior of the pipe, we offer the following option:  XL Trace (CT Jacket)

Preventing frozen pipes by heat tracing the inside of a pipe:

For buried pipes or applications where it is more convenient to heat the pipe from the inside, we offer three different RAYCHEM In-Pipe heat trace cables: In-Pipe Mini, Miser, or Retro heating cable.
