During winter problems with frost in fresh water pipes, waste water pipes, cooling water pipes, supply water pipes and sprinkler systems can be avoided by heating the pipes internally or externally. The Danfoss systems provide either a constant wattage system or a self-limiting system. 

Danfoss’s pipe tracing systems may be used for two main purposes:

  1. Frost protection systems are installed where there is a need to prevent water and sanitary pipes from freezing and becoming ice-damaged.
  2. Temperature maintenance systems ensure that hot water or fluid pipes maintain the required temperature.

Danfoss’s pipe tracing systems may be used on the inside and outside of pipes, for indoor and outdoor pipe networks as well as for pipes above and below the ground.
