trace heat - electrical surface heating


Peter Evans factory The term "trace heating" describes the application of heat to the surfaces of pipelines, tanks, vessels and similar items, whether continuously or intermittently, to raise and/or regulate temperature around and inside those items. The term "surface heating" is also sometimes used. is the internet presence for Peter Evans 'Bolton' Limited. Founded in the UK in 1992 by Barry Darlington, and his son Steven, who between them, have over 45 years of experience in the electrical surface heating industry, enabling work undertaken to achieve BS 6351 (1983), Parts 1, 2 and 3.

We recognised a requirement in the market place for clients who required short lengths of pipelines:-
  • To be protected against frost damage
  • Requiring contents to be raised in temperature
  • Need contents maintained at a given temperature

  • Major manufacturers in the electrical surface heating industry are generally not interested in small projects of these types as the same design time is necessary to design a three metre pipeline as a 300 or 3,000 metre. Smaller clients can often be left to their own devices.

    Understanding this problem, we are very willing to service all clients, small and large with the result that now Peter Evans 'Bolton' Ltd undertakes projects not just throughout the UK and has also undertaken installations in Holland, Ireland, Lithuania and Poland. In addition we have also despatched materials, complete with designs, to Malta and Iceland for local organisations to install.
