Chemical Leak Detection

TTC Application Overview

Sophisticated liquid leak detection systems have the capability to detect and locate strong mineral acids (Sulfuric, Nitric) which have been used in mining, dump leaching and mineral processing applications as well as acetic acid used in phthalate plants.

Specially designed and highly reactive sensing cables, when combined with an advanced alarm and locating module, can detect the presence of conductive liquids at any point along its length. Most acids and bases and even de-ionized water can be sensed and located. When the cable senses the presence of fluid, it triggers an alarm and pinpoints the location. These systems are designed for a variety of applications, including floor surfaces, sub-floors, equipment locations, pipes, storage tanks, and trenches

Fire-Rated Cables & Specialty Wiring

TTC Application Overview

When exposed to the destructive forces of fire, electrical wiring is in jeopardy of failure. To ensure electrical power is available for critical circuit survival, construction methods such as embedding the conductors in concrete were utilized. Today, however, a fire-rated cable & specialty wiring system can provide an excellent solution. The specially designed polymer-based or mineral insulated wiring cables used in these systems allow continuous operation of critical circuits for an extended period of time as compared to conventional cables when exposed to extreme fire environments. Also, these systems are often more cost effective than traditional construction based means of fire protection in new construction as well as retrofit situations.

Commercial & Residential Facilities

Floor Heating

TTC Application Overview

Raychem electrical underfloor heating systems are installed close to the floor surface, resulting in a quick warm-up of the room. They increase comfort at home whilst saving on heating costs – in renovation and new construction projects.

Frost Heave Prevention

TTC Application Overview

Frost Heave prevention systems are used to effectively prevent the build-up of ice in the ground underneath cryogenic tanks potentially leading to undesired deformation and related risks of rupture of the tank wall.

Pentair Thermal Management provides full design capabilities for the prevention of frost heave under cryogenic tanks and tanks or vessels containing LNG, ammonia, or other low temperature liquids. Tanks may produce frost heaving if supplementary heating is not provided under the tanks.

Pentair Thermal Management offers a number of solutions for Frost Heave Prevention (FHP) on large diameter storage tanks.

Industrial Facilities

Frost Protection for Pipes

TTC Application Overview

When pipes are exposed to subzero temperatures they can burst, leading to considerable damage and disruption. The Raychem frost protection system prevents water pipes, fire mains and sprinkler systems in plastic and metal pipes from freezing.

Fuel Leak Detection

TTC Application Overview

If your business involves the transportation, storage, processing or consumption of fuels, acids or hazardous fluids, the possibility of a leak must be considered - and liquid leak detection systems will find leaks well before a classic SCADA system would trigger an alarm. And quick detection is important as it can limit or eliminate property damage and reduce or eliminate business downtime—saving time and money

Hot Water Temperature Maintenance

TTC Application Overview

Today’s hot water system requirements focus on the combination of users’ comfort as well as operational and energy savings. With this in mind, Raychem has developed its hot water temperature maintenance system to keep the water at the right temperature everywhere in the building, no matter how complex the building. The intelligent system keeps the investment cost low and then it operates economically and efficiently.

Commercial & Residential Facilities

Water Leak Detection

TTC Application Overview

Water leaks in offices, hotels, museums, computer rooms, data centers or other commercial buildings can damage property, data and even customer goodwill. Water sensing detection cables, combined with a proper alarm and monitoring device, can alert you to the smallest of leaks allowing you the time to remediate and repair while mitigating the amount of damage that can be done by an undiscovered leak.

Long Pipeline Heating

TTC Application Overview

Pentair Thermal Management longline heating systems offer economical solutions for freeze protection and temperature maintenance of long transfer lines with system lengths of typically 250m or more.

Long lines are usually transfer fluids between processing plants or to storage or transportation facilities. Tank farms, piers for ocean transport vessels, and pipes between petrochemical facilities are other examples of applications for which long line heat tracing may be used. Long line tracing systems can be complex to design and install and can represent a significant capital investment for a plant.

Pentair Thermal Management provides a wide range of industry-proven technologies for these applications depending on length and temperature ranges.

Pipe Freeze Protection

TTC Application Overview

Pentair Thermal Management offers complete heating systems for Frost protection to meet the diverse requirements of many different industries: oil and gas, utilities, petrochemicals, specialty chemicals, pulp and paper, and pharmaceuticals.

Water, and fluids containing significant water, expand as they freeze. This expansion can cause the pipe to break—leading to property damage or production loss, or jeopardizing personnel safety.

We offer various systems of pipe freeze protection using different technologies, suitable for use in hazardous and non-hazardous areas.

Process Temperature Maintenance

TTC Application Overview

Pipe heat tracing is critical for process temperature maintenance of pipes that are expected to have stagnant fluids for prolonged times. 

Pentair Thermal Management industrial heat-tracing systems reliably maintain process temperatures in a wide range of applications.
Our systems use different technologies and are suitable for use in hazardous and non-hazardous areas.

Industrial Facilities

Snow Melting-Ramps & Access ways

TTC Application Overview

Snow and ice can create slippery surfaces which can cause damage to people and vehicles. From car park access ramps and loading bays, to public walkways and emergency escape routes, our systems melt ice and snow and provide a safe surface to walk or drive on.

Snow Melting-Roof & Gutter

TTC Application Overview

Melting and refreezing of ice can damage roofs and gutters. Heavy icicles may fall and cause injury. The Raychem system melts snow and ice in gutters before they build up. It offers a continuous draining path for the melted ice and snow through the gutter and drain pipe.

Tank Heating

TTC Application Overview

Tank heating systems are used for freeze protection and maintaining fluid temperatures in small, medium and large-volume, industrial storage tanks and vessels. Typical applications for tank heating systems and vessels include:

  • Freeze protection of low and medium viscosity fluids (e.g. water, ammonia)
  • Temperature maintenance for medium viscosity fluids (e.g. oils, resins) 
  • Crystallization prevention (e.g. caustic soda) 
  • Condensation prevention (e.g. fly ash in conical bases of silos) 
  • Specialty applications that include heat-up, high viscosity fluids and agitation applications
The best systems are often comprised of electric heat trace cables, advanced control systems, connection kits and insulation.
