Raychem’s Engineering Toolbox Simplifies Design and Specification Process for Heat Trace Applications

Share Article

The toolbox provide engineering solutions to a range of applications including : Frost protection for pipes, Snow melting for gutters, roofs, and downpipes, Snow melting systems for ramps, pathways and stairs, Hot water temperature maintenance for single pipe hot water systems, Electrical underfloor heating systems

Getting the latest information, quickly and efficiently is of paramount importance to a system designer.

Raychem has developed a new ‘Engineering Toolbox’ which simplifies the design process for heat tracing applications. The toolbox provide engineering solutions to a range of applications including :

  • Frost protection for pipes
  • Snow melting for gutters, roofs, and downpipes
  • Snow melting systems for ramps, pathways and stairs
  • Hot water temperature maintenance for single pipe hot water systems
  • Electrical underfloor heating systems

Each section of the toolbox provides a comprehensive guide to the application and includes:

  • Specification text guidelines and notes for engineering drawings
  • System drawing schematics
  • Design overviews (for system selection) and system checklists (to ensure

the optimum system is selected)

  • A wealth of design guide and technical data

Finding what you need, quickly and efficiently

Getting the latest information, quickly and efficiently is of paramount importance to a system designer.
Accessing the new engineering tool at http://www.tycothermal.com/toolbox gives the designer instant access directly to the application of interest without the need for searching the other applications.

Jonathan Jones, Product Manager at Tyco Thermal Controls added, “ The message from the 2010 CIBSE conference was that greater collaboration within the industry was necessary to secure its future. As a market leading manufacturer, and supporter of CIBSE, we feel it necessary to collaborate with the industry by providing better access to resources and more effective design tools to aid the decision making process.”
