A SYSTEM FOR HEATING OIL PIPELINES TO 200 DEG C AND ABOVE HAS BEEN DEVELOPED

A system for heating oil pipelines to 200 deg C and above has been developed by D.F. Othmer (Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, N.Y.). The patented system is based on an a-c circuit composed of an insulated wire running inside the pipeline and setting up a magnetic field, and a second leg consisting of about 1 mm of the pipe's inner surface. The outerpipe wall acts as insulator. The system is being considered for possible use in Artic pipelines and for high-viscosity African oils.
