Steel Pipes - Heat Loss Diagram

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

Heat loss from steel pipes at various temperature difference between pipes and ambient air:

  • 1 kW (kJ/s) = 102.0 kpm/s = 859.9 kcal/h = 3,413 Btu/h = 1.360 hk = 1.341 hp = 738 ft lb/s = 1,000 J/s = 3.6x106 J/h
  • 1 m (metre) = 3.2808 ft = 39.37 in = 1.0936 yd = 6.214x10-4 mile

Heat loss should be corrected for certain applications:

ApplicationCorrection factor
Single pipe freely exposed 1.1
More than one pipe freely exposed 1.0
More than one pipe along the ceiling 0.65
Single pipe along skirting or riser 1.0
More than one pipe along skirting or riser 0.90
Single pipe along ceiling 0.75
