Steam Tracing vs Self-Regulating Cables for High Temperature Industrial Applications

It’s been known for years that steam is a very efficient carrier of heat with a fixed relationship between its pressure and temperature.

When Edmonton-based EWEL went searching for a heat tracing partner back in 2018, it was on a mission to work with a firm that was both customer-focused and provided the most innovative and reliable tracing heating cable solutions in the business. Advances in trace heating have not been seen in years until Drexan’s PipeGuard CMH created a paradigm shift in how to design and install high temperature trace heating in the field. “It’s simply the best high temperature heat tracing cable out there,” says Terry Black, EWEL principal.

Bringing to Market the Most Reliable Ice Dam Prevention Products
