Cold weather could inflict catastrophic damage to your plant and facilities this Winter – as temperatures fall the dreaded downtime danger rises.
Whatever your process, downtime costs money.
But preventative maintenance today can safeguard and protect your processes against crippling downtime, revenue and output losses. The financial costs, both direct and consequential, can be painfully calculated however the reputational damage can be immeasurable.
Industrial & Hazardous Area
Since 1985 Thorne & Derrick have been specifying, designing and supplying both standard and custom Electrical Heating Equipment to overcome the Winter weather effects of icing, freezing or wind chill in industrial and hazardous area locations.
Thorne & Derrick can conduct Heat Tracing System Designs to prevent frost damage to pipework, vessels, tanks, valves, ramps, roof gutters and emergency fire escape stairs – commercially we can deliver trace heating systems from the largest UK stocks at the most competitive prices.
We stock the most complete range of standard and custom-engineered process and immersion heaters, room heaters and thermostats with IECEx and ATEX certification.
For bulk storage containers, we stock the largest range of Drum & IBC Heating Jackets for use in industrial and explosive atmospheres – we can also manufacture bespoke, removable heating jackets to almost any shape and size. Using silicone technology we provide rapid and high temperature heat-up of complex shapes and surfaces – from concept, design to the delivery of standard or bespoke heaters on the shortest lead times.
Warm Workplaces Are Productive Workplaces
There is a causal link between economic loss from reduced labour productivity due to low ambient temperatures. Our ranges of air warming heaters provide safe space and comfort heating in factories and warehouses with explosive atmospheres – this includes portable heaters for confined spaces and temporary applications.
