Been working out a problem I have to figure out at work. I have a large pipe (~6") that needs to be steam heat traced but i dont know much about the fluid properties within the pipe. This fluid will be heateded in a separate tank and pumped across a plant site. the steam heat trace just needs to maintain temperature. Is it ok to assume - if I keep the inner pipe temperature the same as I need the fluid temp (mid 100 F) i can use that temperature to figure out how much steam i need to supply?
