Sewage system frost protection

When dwellings are located below the level of sewage systems, the use of pumping stations is necessary.
For pumping stations, to allow the waste water to be evacuated all year round, measures must be taken to protect against winter temperatures.
Due to the effect of the pump’s backwater valve, the water column to be expelled will remain full and if this part of the system is not buried deep enough, a high risk of freezing occurs which could create a backflow or even a flood.

By providing a highly localized heat in the harsh winter, the FLEXTRACE® cables allow the evacuation of wasted water, even at temperatures as low as -20°C. The FLEXTRACE® cables are fixed on PVC effluent pipes between two layers of aluminium adhesive tape and then insulated before being buried.
