Pinferfield Hospital case study

Frost Protection at a New Hospital

Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust


This large scale new build project comprised a new acute inpatient hospital in Wakefield and new diagnostic and treatment center, each with multi-story buildings. Frost protection of exposed water-bearing pipework was key. With the project’s tight timeline, the system had to be capable of prefabrication off-site in modules for easy connection on-site.


Frost protection for external pipework was provided by 10 km of nVent RAYCHEM WinterGard self-regulated heat-trace cabling. As this cable cable overlapped and cut to length, it sped up installation time and provided reliable and robust frost protection.
