pips are generally cylindrical in structure of amount of heat loss through pipe is given by the formula Q= 2 pi k L(T1-T2)/ln(r2/r1) where k=conductivity of material of which pipe is made T1= temperature of inside layer pipe T2=temperature outside layer of pipe L= length of pipe r1= inner radius r2=outer radius ln=natural logrithem pi=22/7 the above condition applies for steady state flow,single layer over cylinder and neglecting conductivity convection to take conductivity convection into account term Q* must be added Q*=2 pi L{ r1 hi(Ti-T1)+r2 ho(T2-To)} hi=convective coefficient for inside layer ho=convective coefficient for outside layer Ti= temperature of inside space of pipe To=temperature of outside space of pipe for unsteady condition there is another formulaa

Why does insulation around the pipe stop it freezing?

Insulation slows down the loss of energy (heat flow) from the water in the pipe to the surroundings. It will protect from losing heat by convection (wind moving past the pipe removes heat faster than stationary air). If the temperature is cold enough, for a long enough time, eventually it will freeze, even with insulation.Insulation slows down the loss of energy (heat flow) from the water in the pipe to the surroundings.

What is heat loss formulae of water flow through PPR-C pipe line?

you have first to know the thermal conductivity of PPR that you are dealing with. normally, this is in range between 0.1 to 0.24 W/MK .then you apply this formula Q(IN WATTS) =Thermal Conductivity/MK)*A( surface area for the pipe M2 )temperature difference between fluid inside pipe and temprture of pipe surface K)/(thickness of the pipe M)

Heat loss in copper pipes?

The thickness of the pipe will effect the loss rate. Best thing to do is buy thermal isulating foam, normally comes in tubes will a slit down one side so it can be slid over the pipe easily. Also depending on the the fluid inside the conduit ( pipe ) and diameter, ambient temp, and location, you may be able to use a product such as heat trace. It is an electrical wrap that uses voltage and amperage to create heat to shield from the outer elements...
