Insulated Pipes - Heat Loss Diagrams

Heat loss (W/ft) diagrams for insulated pipes - ranging 1/2 - 6 inches - insulation thickness 0.5 - 4 inches - temperature difference 50 - 350 deg F

The heat loss diagrams below is based on metal pipes with fiber glass insulation, thermal conductivity 0.25 Btu/h oF ft2/in and outdoor condition with moderate wind 20 mph. A safety factor of 10% is included.

  • indoor location - reduce values with 10%
  • mineral wool insulation - increase values with 6%
  • rigid cellular polyurethane - reduce values by 30%
