Industrial Process Insulation

P.M. Insulations:
Trace Heating Services

P.M. Insulations are thermal pipe specialists. Whatever your requirement, we have a solution. From a manufacturing process requiring temperature maintenance to frost protection, we can provide a solution. We can provide innovative solutions for use in industrial, residential and commercial construction applications.

To protect pipes from freezing a well designed and installed pipe freeze protection system keeps water flowing, and prevents costly damage to buildings. Self-regulating heat trace cabling provides heat where it’s needed, without the added worry of overheating – find out more below:


From frost protection to temperature maintenance, our heat tracing systems provide innovative solutions for use in industrial, residential and commercial construction applications.

Freeze Protection
Pipes And Vessels

Trace heating installation on pipes and vessels maintains a low temperature above freezing point. Not just for water applications, but also for other liquids in which hydrate formation, precipitation or crystallisation can occur when heat is lost to a lower temperature outside the atmosphere. Any pipe and vessel size can be protected. A digital thermostat is provided for either pipe (surface) sensing or ambient air sensing with BMS signal options.

Temperature Maintenance
Domestic Hot Water Service

With a trace heating system installed, hot water can be provided to all outlets in a HWS system without the expense of return flow piping and pumps etc. Trace heating is added to the flow piping that runs from the water heater to each of the outlets i.e. sinks and showers. The tape self-regulates according to pipe temperature and can be installed without the use of a controller. Normally HWS temperature maintains between 50ºC and 60ºC. The heater should be installed along all HWS piping, usually to within 1m from each outlet.

Temperature Maintenance
Industrial Pipes & Vessels

Many processes cannot be allowed to cool. Trace heating ensures that the process temperature remains at the right level all the way along the piping. Dual thermostatic control is a common approach to increase system availability although there are many solutions to meet most availability requirements.
