Heated fluid supply line

Conduit chauffé pour l'alimentation d'un fluide

Beheizte Fluidversorgungsleitung

Abstract

A supply line for heating a fluid, such as a chemical vapor, includes a pair of spaced-apart, electrically-conductive fluid line segments (12,14). The first of these fluid line segments has a first inlet end (16) and a second outlet end (18). The second fluid line segment has a first inlet end (20) and a second outlet end (22). A fluid connection is provided between the second outlet end of the first fluid line segment and the first inlet end of the second fluid line segment. An electrical connection is provided for electrically connecting the second end of the first fluid line segment with the first end of the second fluid line segment. Similarly, an electrical connection is provided for electrically connecting the first end of the first fluid line segment with the second end of the second fluid line segment. An electrical voltage is applied between the first and second electrical connections to cause an electrical current to flow through the first and second fluid line segments and to thereby heat a fluid flowing through these fluid line segments.
