Many control and monitoring systems include an auto-cycle feature that turns on the heat-tracing system at preset intervals year-round (every 24 hours, 48 hours, etc.). This helps ensure that the system is still functioning properly throughout the warmer months.
Once winter hits, the monitoring system continues to keep the user updated to help reduce the chance of an unexpected pipeline freeze or burst. The early alarm reporting allows users to begin troubleshooting and remedying an issue before it is serious enough to cause a complete shutdown.
