## Abstract

The loop experiment device plays an important role in the study of wax deposition, and the calculation of the temperature distribution of the test section is the key to establish the wax deposition model. In the conditions of the wax deposition was not formed and constant wall temperature of the tube, the energy balance equation is solved by using separation of variables and combining the Kummer equation (S-K method), the distribution law of temperature in the test section is obtained, and the solution results was compared with Svendsen method, the difference between the results obtained by the two methods and the experimental results is also analyzed. The results showed that, the temperature distribution of the test section is consistent with the two methods, and the computing result of Svendsen method is generally higher than the S-K method. Under different axial distances for the take value, the maximum difference of computing results between the two methods is large when the position is farther away from the entrance, and the maximum difference is 0.27℃. Under different radial distances for the take value, with the increase of the axial distance, the difference between the results obtained by the two methods increases gradually in general, and the greater the radial distance, the greater the difference, the maximum difference is 0.27 ℃, thus the calculation results of these two kinds of methods have a higher coincide degree. The results obtained by the two methods are higher than the experimental results, but the difference is small, the results obtained by the S-K method are closer to the experimental results, and this method can avoid solve the numerical integration (Svendsen method) and the inconvenience of Bessel function, so it has a certain advantages.
