The Electric Trace Heating System uses an array of insulated electric heating elements in thermal contact with the pipeline or flowline being heated. The applied electrical power is dissipated as heat by Joule effect resistive heating. The system can be applied to either flexible pipe or rigid pipe-in-pipe. Trace heated flexible pipe is suitable for risers and manifold, well, or sled jumpers.
