hot oiler

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A truck- or skid-mounted unit used to heat oil or treatment fluid. Hot oilers are routinely used in the removal of wax deposits from the upper wellbore section of wells in cold climates where low wellhead temperatures increases the susceptibility of heavy crude oil to wax precipitation.
