Spanish term or phrase: traceado
About conduits:

"En líneas con traceado por vapor, cuando la tubería esté aislada con coquillas, el diámetro de las mismas ha de ser tal que permita cubrir totalmente tanto la tubería de proceso como la de acompañamiento."

What's "traceado"?

English translation:tracing
Explanation:
En este contexto se refiere al trazado de tuberías auxiliares colocadas junto a otras para evitar la congelación o solidificación de líquidos en el invierno.
"Tracing" en este caso es similar a "tracking" pues las tuberías auxiliares rastrean (siguen) a las que se quiere proteger.

Trazar


Explanation:
I'm thinking it might be trace, because I can not find traceado in Robb's Dictionary, in spanish trazar.

So here is the definition of trazar: to locate ; lay out, to traverse; to plan; design; draw; to plat; to scrib.

I'm sorry I cannot extend myself with further explanations, or if I am in anyway mistaken.

Para líneas de vapor ...


Explanation:
Camara is right.

However, I would only write: "Para líneas de vapor ..." It is understood that these are steam designed units.

Hope it helps.
