Flowline with Resistive Electric Heating System

Alexander Pavlov, Igor Plohov


The article deals with electric heating systems applied in flowlines for providing their continued operation in wintertime. The problem of obtaining a given distribution of heat output along the length of the pipeline with electric heating system has been solved. It allows to maintain the same temperature sections being in different environments. As the object of investigation a polymer tube with an integrated electrical heating is chosen.
