Untitled (Raychem Desertclad Tape Trial in Alaska), November 1975. This color slide shows a trial for the application of Desertclad tape to a hot pipe in a snowy Alaska landscape. An unwrapped section of pipe is visible at center right in the foreground that extends toward the heating and wrapping operation at center. Four side boom crawler cranes appear in a row at center supporting heating units around the pipe. Three automobiles and several pieces of equipment appear at center left. Pine trees are visible in the distance at center left and just right of center. The sky is overcast with gray clouds.
Desertclad was a product that the Raychem Corporation was testing for coating oil pipelines in desert conditions. The trial was performed in Alaska during the time that Raychem was also working on coating the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.
