Diamond Controls are engaged to design, supply, install and commission the trace heating systems on new plant for PPG, the world’s leading supplier of Automotive Coatings.

PPG's automotive refinish plant in Suffolk has a vast array of solvents and chemicals in storage, some of which require maintaining at specific temperatures to prevent them from waxing or solidifying in the pipelines or to reduce the load on any pumping equipment.

New sprinkler systems have been installed in the packaging and warehousing areas which required a frost protection system. In addition temporary boilers brought in during winter require trace heating on the associated temporary pipework.

Many areas of this installation are classified as hazardous requiring products rated suitable for use in these conditions; we supply and install the Pentair range of Raychem Industrial Heat Tracing solutions.
