To be ready for tomorrow´s market, cost effective and environmentfriendly solutions have to be found today.
This has never been more vital than in hot water supply and distribution where energy consumption is a significant proportion of a buildings energy usage. Hot water supply without wasting water or power is a requirement of any modern hot water system. At the same time, the system has to be run on economically and maintenance-free. The Raychem HWAT and Eltrace Traceo-W single pipe systems delivers these vital requirements.
A heating cable attached to the single hot water pipe keeps water a the desired temperature. Any heat losses from the hot water pipes are compensated for by a self-regulating temperature maintenance cable attached to the individual hot water pipes. As a result, the individual pipe temperature can be selected, up to that of the storage tank temperature.
The temperature of the cable adjusts at any point along the pipe dependent upon the local conditions on the pipe network. This means that the pipe is heated everywhere in proportion to how much it cools down. If hot water is flowing, the thermal output is reduced. The more often the hot water tap is turned on, the less the hot water temperature maintenance system needs to be activated.
The easily-programmable temperature control device HWAT-ECO monitors the boiler temperature and ensures that the system is used exclusively for maintaining the temperature in the pipe network, not for heating the water. In this way, power consumption is reduced to a minimum.
Our offered product range include the Raychem HWAT and ELtrace Traceco-W self-regulating heating cable product lines, with complete accessory systems for hot water temperature maintenance.
