# Insulation and Heat Loss from Steam and Condesate Pipe Lines

## Heat loss from uninsulated and insulated steam and condensate pipes and tanks. Calculate insulation thicknesses.

### Condensate Generated in Cold Steam Pipes - SI Units

Huge amounts of condensate are generated when cold steam pipes are heated up must be drained from the pipes.

### Condensate Generated in Cold Steam Pipes - Sizing of Steam Traps

When cold steam pipes are heated up they generate huge amounts of condensate that must be drained away from the pipe through steam traps - in Imperial Units.

### Convective Heat Transfer

Heat transfer between a solid and a moving fluid is called convection. This is a short tutorial about convective heat transfer.

### Copper Tubes - Heat Losses

Heat loss from uninsulated copper tubes vs. temperature differences between tube and air.

### Heat Transfer Coefficients in Heat Exchanger Surface Combinations

Average overall heat transmission coefficients for fluid and surface combinations like Water to Air, Water to Water, Air to Air, Steam to Water and more.

### Insulated Steam Pipes - Condensate Generated

Heat loss from steam pipes generates condensate which must be drained from the system - imperial units.

### Insulated Steam Pipes - Condensate Generated (kg/h per 100m)

Heat loss from steam pipes generates condensate which must be drained from the system.

### Insulation Materials - Operating Temperature Limits

Temperature limits for commonly used insulation materials.

### Oil Filled Tanks - Heat Loss

Heat loss from insulated and uninsulated, sheltered and exposed heated oil tanks.

### Overall Heat Transfer Coefficients

Walls or heat exchangers - calculate overall heat transfer coefficients.

### Perlite Insulation

Thermal conductivity - k-values - vs. temperature.

### Pipes - Bare Surface Heat Loss

Heat loss vs. surface temperature.

### Pipes - Insulated Heat Loss Diagrams

Heat loss (W/m) from 1/2 to 6 inches insulated pipesĀ - ranging insulation thickness 10 to 80 mm and temperature differences 20 to 180 degC.

### Pipes - Insulated Heat Loss Diagrams

Heat loss (W/ft) diagrams for 1/2 to 6 inches insulated pipesĀ - ranging insulation thickness 0.5 to 4 inches and temperature differences 50 to 350 degF.

### Pipes Submerged in Oil or Fat - Heat Emission

Heat emission from steam or water heating pipes submerged in oil or fat - forced and natural circulation.

### Pipes Submerged in Water - Heat Emission

Heat emision from steam or water heating pipes submerged in water - assisted (forced) or natural circulation.

### Radiation - Surface Emissivity Coefficients

Radiation emissivity of common materials like water, ice, snow, grass and more.

Heat transfer due to emission of electromagnetic waves is known as thermal radiation.

### Steam Heating Processes - Load Calculating

Calculating the amount of steam in non-flow batch and continuous flow heating processes.

### Steam Heating Systems - Classifications

Steam systems carries heat through pipes from the boiler to consumers as heat exchangers, process equipment etc.

### Steam Pipes - Fuel Consumption due to Heat Losses over a Year

Yearly heat loss in amount of coal or oil consumption for insulated and uninsulated steam pipes at different dimensions and operation times.

### Steam Pipes - Heat Losses

The amount of condensate generated in a steam pipe depends on the heat loss from the pipe to the surroundings.

### Steam Pipes - Heat Losses (W/m)

Heat losses from un-insulated steam pipes.

### Steam Tracing Pipe Lines

Steam tracing of pipe lines can be done to maintain appropriate product temperatures.

### Steel Pipes - Heat Loss Diagram

Heat loss from steel pipes and tubes - dimensions 1/2 to 12 inches.
