Heating insulation Blanket / Heat Trace Blanket

Custom Heat Trace insulation blanket can be supplied at any size and it can have the needed amount of heat trace cable built inside the insulation blanket.

Canstal Heat Trace team can sew any type of heat trace cable to our removable heated insulation blanket, the heated blanket can be used for any industrial and commercial project.

Canstal’s custom Heating insulation blanket area suitable for an indoor and out doors, pipes, pumps, tanks, valves, flanges and other instruments.



PVC pipe Heat Trace

We receive a lot of questions asking if PVC pipes can be heat traced. Yes PVC pipes can be heat traced as long as the heat trace temperature provided doesn’t exceed the pipe exposure temperature. Picture below showing recent Heat Trace installation in Toronto area, the Heat Trace cable placement on PVC pipe must be at the bottom of the pipe, wither the purpose of installing the heat trace is a freeze protection or maintain high temperature the setpoint temperature must not exceed the pipe exposure temperature.

Self regulating heat trace cable can be used to heat trace a PVC pipe with out a a temperature controller relying on the self regulating feature to protect from the pipe from freezing.

The PVC pipe must be insulated after installing the heat trace cable.

Pipe support & pipe shoes Heat Trace installation details

It is very common to see pipe supports and pipe shoes connected to an industrial and commercial pipes, for any heat trace application wither its maintain temperature or a freeze protection an extra heat trace cable allowance must be added to the pipe near the pipe support and pipe shoe to compensate for the heat loss, this will apply for any type of the heat trace cables wither its Self regulating heat trace cable or MI heat trace cable. see the picture below from a recent project we supplied and install in Toronto area.

Insulation and Heat Trace for pipes

For pipe heat trace application it is required to insulate the pipe. the insulation required for two main reasons:

  • Physical protection for the heat trace cable.
  • Minimize the pipe heat loss keeping the pipe warm and save energy, having the insulation it will minimize the heat loss and reduce the needed time for the heat trace to be ON.

Insulation size and type selection is usually done by Canstal engineering team.
