How to Choose ISTR Method When You Have Them All?
Thermal treatment is a specialty service, and most vendors have developed just one technology. However, sites are complex and different, and each one may require a unique thermal technology, or combination of technologies. This presentation focuses on site characteristics that should dictate the choice of heating technology - providing guidance and generalizations. Optimal fit is critical for getting good remedial results. The author bases these observations from work at 75 ISTR sites, involving ERH, TCH, SEE and combination of the above.
