Winterization and Freeze Protection of Piping, Tanks, and Instrumentation

Image
Winterization and freeze protection of piping, tanks, and instrumentation is a common requirement in many process plants, particularly those with significant systems in the plant exposed to harsh weather. Freeze protection applies heat to pipes, tanks, or vessels to offset the thermal insulation loss. Heat always transfers from hot to cold. The risk of a freeze-up often gets ignored because the result may not be critical to plant operation or personnel. Safety examples of such applications include drinking water drain lines and effluent systems. However, many other winterization systems can be crucial to personnel safety and plant operation. For example, a major chemical company in North Carolina in the United States once suffered a freeze-up on an electrical heat traced boiler level-sensing instrument line. This small problem cascaded into a boiler shutdown, which led to a freeze-up of the entire plant due to the widely applied steam tracing within the facility. After being down for
