HEAT LOSS – Is one of the reasons to implement and work with Pipelagger Pro.
If left uninsulated, heating system pipework can lose a vast amount of heat and energy over its lifespan.
Where pipes operate at below-ambient temperatures, water vapour can condense on the surface. This moisture is known to contribute towards many different types of corrosion therefore preventing the formation of condensation on pipework is a key consideration.
To prevent condensation, the insulation thicknesses used on cold pipes must be sufficient to ensure that the temperature on the surface of the insulation material never falls below the dew point.
When selecting and determining the thickness for low-temperature insulation, it is necessary to bear in mind that over the service life energy losses can increase dramatically because of moisture penetration.
A reliable insulation system must therefore exist to provide protection against inadmissible moisture penetration.
With every % volume increase of moisture content the thermal conductivity increases, and the insulation effect deteriorates. The results are not only higher energy losses but also a drop in the surface temperature. If this falls below the dew-point temperature, condensation occurs. It is only possible to guarantee that the surface temperature remains above the dew point even after many years of operation, if the thermal conductivity of the insulation material does not increase significantly because of moisture penetration.
Follow-up costs can be:
Expense of repairing damage
Disruptions to production processes
Rise of energy losses due to wet insulation
Enhancements in pipe lagging will simplify what is a laborious and unappealing task and equip plumbers with confidence to enhance homes, drive industry improvements and provide inspiration for others to continue to learn lessons to further improve standards and raise the bar.
Within an increasingly energy efficient driven industry, cost effective, innovative solutions to support government targets, industry standards and customer expectation is essential.
