The Limpet Heating Company Ltd

Innovative Process Heating Solutions for Industry


The Limpet heating system can be used in a wide range of applications in the food, beverage, consumer goods, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, chemical, water, waste water and concrete industries.

Heated industrial process installation

The LimpetTM heating system is primarily intended for temperature maintenance and frost protection, rather than being the primary heating source, although it is a very effective heater as well. 

It is ideal for fitting to pumps, meters, valves, pipe flanges and other equipment that is difficult or expensive to heat using traditional means, such as trace heating, hot air, induction electrical heaters or hot water systems.

The most common applications for the Limpet system are as follows:

  • Pumps. This includes progressive cavity, lobe (Roots), rotary gear, screw, centrifugal, sinusoidal, and air diaphragm pumps.
  • Meters, including magnetic mass flow, Coriolis, turbine, Roots, positive displacement, ultrasonic, vortex and differential pressure meters.
  • Valves, including ball, butterfly, gate, globe, swing, knife, control, diaphragm and solenoid valves.
  • Pipe flanges of all sizes.
  • Pipes, especially sections that are not easy to heat using conventional means.
  • Small vessels, including gas cylinders.
  • Troughs and tanks, using the Limpet TTS.
  • Marine diesel engines that require frost protection.

Industries where Limpets can be used include the following:

  • Food, including baking, confectionery, dairy, cocoa butter, sugars and fats.
  • Beverage, notably for sugars.
  • Consumer goods.
  • Cosmetics, including lanolin, oils and surfactants.
  • Pharmaceutical.
  • Chemical, notably oils, adhesives, acids and alkalis.
  • Water and waste water for frost protection and sewerage sludge removal.
  • Marine diesel engines.
