Covers with Heating Elements
When equipment needs to be protected from cold and freezing, but does not have an inner heat source, a Fit Tight Cover can be fabricated with electrical heating components included. This type of cover avoids the cost of heat tracing the item, hiring an electrician, or installing a thermostat. As with all Fit Tight Covers, a cover with electrical heating components can be easily installed, removed, and re-installed as needed. In warmer temperatures, the cover can simply be removed and stored until colder temperatures return. Besides saving energy and protecting your equipment, the cost of a cover fabricated with electrical heating components is significantly less than normal field alternatives to prevent freezing.
During January 2011, Fit Tight Covers fabricated 25 covers with electrical heating components, all on an emergency basis due to very cold temperatures in the region. Order yours now to be prepared for the next winter storm!
Beyond just the electric trace, we can also manufacture Fit Tight Covers with heating components capable of maintaining a certain process temperature. The photograph above shows a removable insulation cover for a natural gas analyzer with a silicone laminated heater designed to maintain 85°F.
