Dear All,

 

i have one doubt in heat loss calculation(insulation for pipe line). if any Thumb Rules are available in insulation thickness & heat loss.

Like this, based on pipe size,

(<100NB PIPE - INSULATION THICKNESS(50mm).

((100-250)NB PIPE - INSULATION THICKNESS(65mm).

(>250NB PIPE - INSULATION THICKNESS(75mm).

And which heat loss(min) is convenient for less cost with good insulation.

example: thumb rule : Heat loss (<2345 W/m.) is good heat loss with minimum cost. (like this)

# Above points are Not thumb rules. this all are my assumptions.

please provide the technical advice to me.

thank you and waiting for your reply.

That depends on many factors - fluid temperature, energy cost, ambient conditions. There is no universal answer as you could imagine.

Check 3E Plus software (free) for evaluating different options and thickness for insulation. You'll get a straightforward answer.
