Around the world, process technology licensors, EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction), and end users appreciate CSI’s unbiased and total system approach to solving tough heating challenges in the asphalt and crude oil industry.

CSI is the only company which provides not only the heating system (jacketed pipe, ControTrace®, or TraceBOOST™) to meet the technical requirements of asphalt/crude oil but also a complete solution which minimizes capital and ongoing maintenance costs.

This complete heating solution includes supplying the pipe or equipment being heating as well as the heating media infrastructure (manifolds, supply/return tubing, steam straps, etc.). Heating mediums such as steam or hot oil are typically used with CSI thermal maintenance systems.  Also, CSI supplies detailed installation instructions and dedicated field service support.

Asphalt and crude oil applications for which CSI can provide turnkey heating system are:

• Asphalt and crude oil transfer lines

• Asphalt and crude oil storage tanks

• Coker wedge flow meters

• Coker heavy resid lines
