Steam and condensate pipes - heat loss uninsulated and insulated pipes, insulation thickness and more.
Huge amounts of condensate are generated when cold steam pipes are heated up must be drained from the pipes.
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.
Heat transfer between a solid and a moving fluid is called convection. This is a short tutorial about convective heat transfer.
