Steam and condensate pipes - heat loss uninsulated and insulated pipes, insulation thickness and more
Steam systems carries heat through pipes from the boiler to consumers as heat exchangers, process equipment etc.
Huge amounts of condensate 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 loss from steam pipes generates condensate which must be drained from the system - imperial units
Heat loss from steam pipes generates condensate which must be drained from the system
Heat transfer between a solid and a moving fluid is called convection. This is a short tutorial about convective heat transfer
Heat loss from uninsulated copper tubes at various temperature differences between tube and air
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.
Heat loss vs. surface temperature.
Amount of condensate generated in steam pipes depends on the heat loss from the pipe to the surroundings
Heat loss (W/m) from 1/2 to 6 inches insulated pipes - ranging insulation thickness 10 to 80 mm and temperature differences 20 to 180 oC.
Heat loss (W/ft) diagrams for 1/2 to 6 inches insulated pipes - ranging insulation thickness 0.5 to 4 inches and temperature differences 50 to 350 oF.
Temperature limits for commonly used insulation materials.
Heat loss from insulated and uninsulated, sheltered and exposed heated oil tanks.
Walls or heat exchangers - calculate overall heat transfer coefficients.
Thermal conductivity - k-values - vs. temperature.
Heat emission from steam or water heating pipes submerged in oil or fat - forced and natural circulation.
Heat emision from steam or water heating pipes submerged in water - assisted (forced) or natural circulation
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.
