# Pipes - Insulated Heat Loss Diagrams

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%
• Heat loss diagram (W/ft)

### Pipe Heat Loss - Insulation thickness 4 inches

• 1 W/ft = 3.41 Btu/h ft = 3.28 W/m
• 1 oF = 0.555 oC
