Freeze Protection

Urecon pre-insulated pipe and heat trace systems are ideally suited for the harsh conditions commonly found in mining. Typical applications include:

  • Shallow buried water and sewer systems for permanent or temporary construction/staff campsites
  • Mine process water, reclaim water and tailings
  • Shallow buried or above ground fire water lines
  • Pre-insulated piping in racks or on sleepers (often jacketed with our Spiwrap system (galvanized steel or aluminum material))

In many cases, the piping used in northern mining is laid directly on grade. Carrier pipe can vary from steel to plastic but the most common material in extreme temperatures is HDPE. Pre-insulated polyethylene pipe is resilient yet flexible (even with urethane insulation and PE jacket) allowing for fewer fittings as the pipe simply follows the topography of the landscape. PE casing is used as an outside jacket as it tough enough to resist the friction from initial placement and the expansion/contraction on jagged terrain while in operation. Fused HDPE joints create a constant insulation jacket outer diameter which is ideal for laid-on-grade pipe. The Urecon Slipjoint® is the preferred choice at the joints on these applications.

Decades of experience designing and supplying for the most severe temperatures the far north can deliver have earned us a reputation as leaders in the field of pre-insulated and heat traced HDPE. Urecon is freeze protection.
