Industrial Pipe Tracing

Nelson’s selection of pipe tracing cables and controls includes solutions for every industrial heating application. We offer the power densities you require at the voltages you use to maintain the heat levels you require. We build cables that keep water flowing at ambient temperatures as low as 40°C/ 40°F, and cables that withstand temperatures up to 593°C/1100°F. We supply cables and controls suitable for damp, corrosive and hazardous locations. Appleton Group offers cables in extended, continuous lengths. We provide software and expertise to make selecting the right pipe tracing solution easy.

Industrial Tank and Vessel Heating

Because there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for process temperature maintenance, Nelson Heat Trace offers innovative specialty products targeted to specific application needs. Our pre-insulated tubing bundles provide single or dual 316 stainless steel process tubes in a variety of sizes complete with heat tracing, insulation and outer jacket. Nelson Heat Trace tank and vessel heating panels are easy to install and provide precise control over heat distribution. We offer under tank and foundation heating solutions to prevent ice formation and frost heave beneath tanks that contain extremely cold substances.
