Steam Tracing

Because industrial production processes are often temperature dependent, Hertel Industrial Services also offers tracing by means of steam pipes. With steam tracing, we ensure that the products remain at the right temperature.

From engineering to follow-up

In case of steam tracing, we install metal pipes along pipelines or machines which we heat using steam (low or high pressure) or hot water or hot oil. Different types of materials are used, depending on the temperature, the customer’ wishes and the ambient factors. At Hertel Industrial Services, we provide support from engineering to construction and follow-up.


Additional services


We use various techniques to connect all these materials, depending on the application, e.g. by means of fittings, welding or orbital welding. In addition, we also take care of peripheral services, such as supporting, cable ladders, supply lines, … We also develop products ourselves, which are necessary for the optimum operation of the tracing, tailored to your installation. For instance, we have developed our own ‘Hertel Industrial Services manifold’ to operate the tracing circuits. Apart from these unique condensate and steam manifolds, we also design and supply:


  • Trap valve stations
  • Condensate traps
  • Thermostatic start-up valves
  • Frost protection valves
