Chemical Leak Detection

TTC Application Overview

Sophisticated liquid leak detection systems have the capability to detect and locate strong mineral acids (Sulfuric, Nitric) which have been used in mining, dump leaching and mineral processing applications as well as acetic acid used in phthalate plants.

Specially designed and highly reactive sensing cables, when combined with an advanced alarm and locating module, can detect the presence of conductive liquids at any point along its length. Most acids and bases and even de-ionized water can be sensed and located. When the cable senses the presence of fluid, it triggers an alarm and pinpoints the location. These systems are designed for a variety of applications, including floor surfaces, sub-floors, equipment locations, pipes, storage tanks, and trenches

Frost Heave Prevention

TTC Application Overview

When water is present in the ground and exposed to cold temperatures, it can freeze and cause damage to any structure that resides above it. As the subterranean water turns to ice, an ice mass can form large enough to cause the ground to heave up. This movement of the ground can disrupt foundations, tank bottoms, etc. causing damage to the structure and putting valuable inventory at risk. By embedding electric heat tracing systems in the concrete layers below a tank or a cold room or freezer and insulating the bottom of each structure appropriately, the ice buildup in the ground underneath can be prevented.

Fuel Leak Detection

TTC Application Overview

If your business involves the transportation, storage, processing or consumption of fuels, acids or hazardous fluids, the possibility of a leak must be considered - and liquid leak detection systems will find leaks well before a classic SCADA system would trigger an alarm. And quick detection is important as it can limit or eliminate property damage and reduce or eliminate business downtime—saving time and money

Water Leak Detection

TTC Application Overview

Water leaks in offices, hotels, museums, computer rooms, data centers or other commercial buildings can damage property, data and even customer goodwill. Water sensing detection cables, combined with a proper alarm and monitoring device, can alert you to the smallest of leaks allowing you the time to remediate and repair while mitigating the amount of damage that can be done by an undiscovered leak.

Commercial & Housing Facilities

Pipe Freeze Protection

TTC Application Overview

In cold locations, thermal insulation alone often cannot keep fluids in pipes from freezing. Electric heating systems designed to provide pipe freeze protection can prevent freezing of fluids in pipes for a variety of industrial, commercial and residential applications and environments, including hazardous, nonhazardous, and steam cleanable areas.

Process Temperature Maintenance

TTC Application Overview

By selecting the proper heat trace cable and controls, a process temperature maintenance system can maintain the temperature of the fluid in a pipe to a desired level, over a broad range of temperatures, depending on the need dictated by the particular process or application. Electric heat tracing systems can perfom this task reliably in all types of fluid filled pipelines regardless of whether the application is located in an industrial or a commercial environment.

Industrial Facilities

Tank Heating

TTC Application Overview

Tank heating systems are used for freeze protection and maintaining fluid temperatures in small, medium and large-volume, industrial storage tanks and vessels. Typical applications for tank heating systems and vessels include:

  • Freeze protection of low and medium viscosity fluids (e.g. water, ammonia)
  • Temperature maintenance for medium viscosity fluids (e.g. oils, resins) 
  • Crystallization prevention (e.g. caustic soda) 
  • Condensation prevention (e.g. fly ash in conical bases of silos) 
  • Specialty applications that include heat-up, high viscosity fluids and agitation applications
The best systems are often comprised of electric heat trace cables, advanced control systems, connection kits and insulation.

Tank Insulation

TTC Application Overview

Industrial tank insulation systems require a covering of insulation and jacketing to reduce heat loss or gain for large, flat-bottomed tanks that store materials that are sensitive to temperature fluctuations. We offer a tank insulation system as a complete heat management system. Our Trac-Loc tank insulation system is a vertical double-locking standing seam insulation panel system that we construct, design, and install.
