Key Applications:

HWAT - Domestic Hot Water Temperature Maintenance : Pentair Thermal Management has a sophisticated domestic hot water temperature maintenance (HWAT) system that provides immediate hot water at the tap that is more energy efficient and saves more water than a recirculation system.

XL Trace - Pipe Freeze Protection: Pentair Thermal Management uses electric heat trace cables to keep non-flowing water in pipes, pumps and associated equipment from freezing.  The electric heat trace cables are engineered to replace the heat lost through the thermal insulation.

Ice Stop - Roof And Gutter De-Icing: Roof and gutters can be severely damaged by ice buildup. Ice dams and icicles form when the accumulated snow on a roof melts, and refreezes at the eaves and valleys during the evening. As the cycle continues and the ice dam continues to grow, it prevents the melted water from properly draining off of the roof. Eventually, icicles begin to form, potentially creating both structural damage and safety issues.

Freezer Frost Heave Protection: Pentair Thermal Management offers a freezer frost heave prevention system that when installed in the subfloor under the freezer-floor insulation, can prevent frost heave damage in commercial freezers, ice arenas or other cold room areas.

Surface Snow Melting: Pentair Thermal Management offers snow melting cables that provide surface snow melting and anti-icing for concrete surfaces and pavers. These systems keep walkways, parking garages, loading ramps, stairways and other areas free of snow and ice to help prevent slip hazards.

Flow Maintenance: Flow maintenance involves heating a fluid in order to lower its viscosity so that it can be moved through a pipe or a tank.
