Electric Heat Tracing System
Skin Effect System
Skin Effect Heat Tracing system is technically & commercially most suitable and reliable solution for heat tracing of long cross country (Buried/Above ground) pipelines. The system is based on skin effect phenomena used to concentrate the heat generated through I2R losses to inside of heat tube (which is welded to the carrier pipe) & there is no potential on the rest of the heat tube thereby making the system extremely safe and reliable. The figures (1) illustrates the typical Skin Effect electric heat tracing system. Skin effect system can maintain temperature of a long pipeline up to 25 Kms from a single power source.
