Heat Trace Maintenance

Heat Trace Maintenance Agreement

A heat trace maintenance agreement is essentially a continuous audit of your Heat Management System established on a monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis. During these heat trace audits, we evaluate critical data from each circuit and systematically record the data on a maintenance checklist. We then compare the data against the original design to determine if problems exist.

Heat Trace Maintenance Program
  • Do you have plans to add lines to your existing heat tracing system?
  • What additional load can your current transformer handle?
  • How much additional footage can be spliced onto a certain circuit at the current breaker size?

These types of questions can be answered quickly and accurately if you have a "real-time" analysis of your current system. Virtually every heat management system application includes inherent factors that may cause system failure such as:

  • Wet, damaged, or missing insulation
  • Improperly installed heat tracing cable or components
  • Poor initial design
  • Adjustments or "quick-fixes" made in the field
  • Changes in system design or operation parameters/conditions

To combat these factors, nVent Thermal Management has tailored various heat trace maintenance programs for virtually every industry during the last 25 years.

Updating Documentation

nVent Thermal Management can edit and update existing drawings and design documents as part of our audit or maintenance program responsibilities.
