Title: HOT RODS
Abstract:
System and methods are described that help to inhibit the formation of paraffin or wax within an oil well or pumping mechanism. Magnets can be integrated into a rod within the well tubing. The tubing can comprise metal portions such as bands or coils that can experience an induced electrical current as the rod magnets pass back and forth during pump operation. The induced electric current raises the temperature of fluids and materials in the well, inhibiting paraffin formation.
