July 2, 2019 – Britech Corporation, a Canadian heating cable company, has signed an agreement to become a distributor for Heat Trace Limited, an industrial heat trace cable manufacturer in Cheshire, England. 

Gerry Lemieux, president of Britech, announced the partnership in late May 2019.

Heat Trace provides solutions in self-regulating high-temperature heat tracing cables up to 275 degrees Celsius and high-temperature long-line heating cables, as well as an exclusive high-temperature, 425 degree-Celsius, cut-to-length, in-the-field replacement for mineral-insulated cables.

The self-regulating heating cables with a stabilized design for high-temperature applications are desirable in industrial applications where constant exposure to high temperatures can degrade heating cables. This can cause loss of performance characteristics and premature failure or a runaway condition that can result in increased temperature output in industrial processes that are damaging and possibly unsafe.

Heat Trace products are now stocked in Canada by Britech. The local inventory of cables and accessories can meet specialized needs of maintenance and engineering in industrial environments.

Britech carries a full inventory for same-day shipping of heating cables and controls for industrial, commercial and residential applications, including hazardous Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas, with high temperature capabilities to T1.
