Heat Trace Piping Systems


Insul-Pipe Systems offers a pre-insulated piping system complete with a heat trace tube for a variety of heat trace needs. The systems are comprised of a specified carrier pipe pre-insulated with polyurethane insulation and jacketing in either a HDPE, or FRP jacket. The system comes with a steel pipe attached to the carrier pipe either by welding in place or by strapping in place, that can then be used as the “raceway” to insert a heat trace wire.

The system features:

  1. Closed cell polyurethane insulation, offering the lowest available thermal conductivity and the best natural resistance to water penetration.
  2. Engineered coupling and fitting insulation kits providing the same level of moisture protection.
  3. This system can also be provided with prefabricated and pre-insulated fittings.

We can manufacture Insul-Pipe Systems Hot Water Systems to meet job specifications using a carrier pipe of:

  • Steel
  • Copper
  • PVC

Sample Submittal Specifications

 PIPING SYSTEM: Underground, pre-insulated hot water supply and return piping.

CARRIER PIPE: Steel – ASTM A-53 Grade B, ERW Sch 40 thru 10” and standard wall for sizes 12” and larger; or Type K or L copper; or gasketed or solvent weld PVC; or Ductile Iron.

OUTER JACKET: Seamless, low pressure rated PVC or HDPE, or Fiberglass

INSULATION: Polyurethane, 2.5 PCF density, 90 to 95% closed cell, poured in place, “K” = .13 per inch @75 degrees F.

END SEALS: Factory applied, waterproof mastic covering the urethane insulation at each end of each joint of pipe and bonded both to the carrier pipe and the outer jacket.

COUPLINGS: Coupling insulation kits are urethane components field mixed and poured into a PVC mold sealed to form a watertight seal.

FITTINGS: Fitting insulation kits are urethane components field mixed and poured into a PVC molded fitting cover then taped to form a watertight seal.
