Freeze Protection and Thawing Frozen Pipes – Self-regulating heating cable is the perfect solution to protect pipes from freezing. The cable is flexible and has a small ½” diameter for easy installation, and includes an outer thermoplastic shell that resists moisture and caustic elements. It can be run along the pipe for hundreds of feet on a single circuit, and its heat output increases as the ambient temperature decreases for extra protection. It can be loosely applied, can cross over itself, and spiral-wrapped without fear of failure. Click here to learn more about Freeze Protection and Thawing Frozen Pipes
Emergency De-icing and Freeze Protection- HSTAT silicone rubber heating tape is the perfect tool for providing temporary heat to quickly get frozen systems back up and running and reduce downtime. When confronted with a stuck or frozen system, wrap the HSTAT heating tape around the frozen part, set the temperature, and allow the heat to quickly thaw/unfreeze the part. The easy-to-use portable heat tape provides instant localized heat to quickly de-ice parts efficiently and safely. When finished, the HSTAT heating tape is easily rolled up and kept in a toolbox or cabinet, ready for use again when needed. Click here to learn more about Emergency De-icing and Freeze Protection
Freeze Protection for Pipes, Residential and Commercial Use – SpeedTrace self-regulating heating cable is the perfect solution to protect pipes from freezing. It’s plug-and-play design comes preassembled with a grounded 3-prong plug for easy installation. The cable is flexible enough to fit around pipes and valves and approved for indoor/outdoor use. Self-regulating cable is specifically designed for freeze protection because it automatically adjusts the heat output based upon air conditions and never exceeds 150°F (65°C). It is completely safe for use with all types of pipe, tube, and filtration systems and available in several lengths up to 150ft (45.7m).

Freeze Protection for Control Panels – TSREH enclosure heaters keep the control panel’s interior warm. TSREH heaters are silicone heaters pre-adhered to a steel plate. Easily mount the heater inside the panel using screws or bolts through the pre-drilled holes on the steel flange and make electrical connections. The plate-mounting ensures that the heater is installed where it is needed most and held securely in place. The steel plate also helps radiate the heat for maximum effectiveness. A built-in ambient sensing thermostat automatically senses air temperature and switches the heater on and off to provide easy worry-free operation. TSREH enclosure heaters have a small profile of only 2.5″ (64mm) minimizing required space within the panel. Click here to learn more about Freeze Protection for Control Panels
Freeze Protection for Tanks and Vessels– SRL/SRP silicone heating blankets are the ideal solution to protect most tank contents from freezing. Once the appropriate required wattage is determined, several heating blankets can be symmetrically placed around a tank. The heaters are easily attached and held in place using built-in pressure sensitive adhesive. They are flexible to ensure a good fit around curved surfaces, grounded for safety, and made with extra-thick water resistant silicone rubber for extreme durability and long life Click here to learn more about Freeze Protection for Tanks and Vessels
Wrap-around IBC/Tote Tank Heaters (TOTE)- Wrap around IBC/TOTE tank heaters are an all-in-one heater with built-in insulation and a temperature controller to maximize heat efficiency and heat-up time. Click here to learn more about Wrap-around IBC/Tote Tank Heaters (TOTE)
