Speakers: Ben Johnson and Rich Hulett

Details: This seminar on Electric Heat Tracing will look at Heat Tracing Standards, Heat Tracing Options and Heat Tracing Solutions.

The first section on Standards will discuss the main standards that apply to heat tracing in Canada; IEEE 515, CSA 130-03, CSA CEC Section 62 and IEC 60079-30 including how they are related and what these standards address. This section will also look at recent changes to these standards such as braid or sheath conductivity, thermal performance benchmark, Division and Zone 1 requirements, sheath temperature verification, controlled design, ground fault protection of equipment, as well as what is next in these standards.

The second section of Heat Tracing Options will address basic constructions such as series & parallel designs, constant wattage & PTC. In addition heating cable types such as mineral insulated cable, polymer insulated series cable, constant wattage parallel cable, self-regulating cable and skin-effect tracing will be discussed.

The final section will address the basic application considerations for Heat Tracing Solutions including in-plant complex piping, interconnecting pipelines and product transfer lines.
