Thermal Insulating System Design for the Wellhead of the Snubbing Service Equipment
The unsteady state mathematic model was utilized to compute the transient temperature field and determine the heating power, and then a set of thermal insulating system for the wellhead of the snubbing service equipment was designed and manufactured based on the mapping of the material object. The result shows that the numerical results of the cartridge heater’s temperature field agree with the testing values. The thermal insulating system for the wellhead of the snubbing service equipment meets the needs of the snubbing service in the winter; the system possesses the merits of rapid rate of temperature rise, well thermal insulating, safety and convenience.
