Tracing of pipelines on a platform in the North Sea
To keep the piping on a platform in the North Sea free of frost, we installed selfregulating tracing ribbon. For synthetic pipes we first apply aluminum tape, then tracing ribbon and afterwards again aluminium tape to ensure a good dissipation of warmth. The piping is afterwards insulated and covered with an aluminum plate.
Regulation of the temperature is assured by a central surroundings thermostat. This is possible thanks to the selfregulating characteristic of the heating ribbon.
