Hot and Cold Insulation Thickness

Hot and Cold Insulation Thickness

thread391-262608: Insulation thickness/surface temperature

Dear All,

I was reading the topic thread391-262608: Insulation thickness/surface temperature and Mr. AllHandlesTaken and Mr.Ione indicated two free software to thickness insulation calculation.

- http://www.pipeinsulation.org/ (3EPlus)
- http://www.kaicalc.de/ (company)

Has anyone tried these programs or other programs ?
Has anyone positive or negative comments about these programs or other ?



RE: Hot and Cold Insulation Thickness

I have used the 3E plus.

It is the only one I have used, so I don't know how it compares with others.

It does allow for user addition of other pipe and insulation materials.

The only downside is it forces you to use NPS, so you cannot use pipe materials that have other wall thicknesses.


RE: Hot and Cold Insulation Thickness

Dear Pedarrin2,

Thank you for your comment. What insulation system type have you used the 3EPlus ?

With Regards

RE: Hot and Cold Insulation Thickness

Rather limited use.

Only fiberglass and elastomeric pipe insulation.
