Untitled (Raychem Desertclad Tape Trial in Alaska), November 1975. This color slide shows two heaters around a section of unwrapped pipe in a snowy landscape. The heaters are cylindrical and wrap around the exterior of the pipe. The heaters both have black tubing connecting to their sides and a set of metal runners on the underside. Metal loops at top provide a place to attach the units to an overhead metal structure.
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.
