It's Really Cold! Are Your Pipes, Tanks, Totes, and Valves Freeze Protected?

Winter is here in full force. Plant operators and plant maintenance must be vigilant in preventing the freezing of their equipment.  Cold temperatures can often damage or destroy objects and their contents. Pipes, valves, tanks, vessels, conveyers, and housings are examples of common objects that can be hurt by the cold and have devastating consequences, costly downtime and unplanned outages.

Anticipating freezing conditions and protecting buildings, equipment, and grounds against freeze damage is a vital part of a Facility Maintenance Program. There's a wide range of freeze protection applications you need to consider, including pipe tracing, drum heating, roof and gutter de-icing, IBC heating, valve de-icing, vessel heating, and enclosure heating.
