The IsoCalc program is designed to perform various rudimentary thermal
calculations using fundamental engineering heat flow formulas and input
data that is application specific. The program will determine the following
information applicable to pipe and sheet insulation for piping, duct, and
large vessel applications:
Features of the IsoCalc Software
- Thickness to prevent condensation
- Heat Loss/Gain
- Surface and Outlet Temperatures
- Cost to Operate System/Energy Savings
- Time to Freeze
Typical input data which may be required for above calculations are: Fluid temperature,
Ambient Temperature, Pipe Size, Relative Humidity, Length of Pipe, and Flow Rate.
Thermal k-values for the insulation products offered have been pre-selected.
Note: information must be entered in all input fields for the program to operate.
If a given condition data point is not known, i.e. relative humidity, the program can be
run using different conditions and the options presented to the end user for final
insulation thickness selection. Several factors must be considered when determining
operating conditions. For condensation control, "design" operating conditions should
be selected. In other cases, efficiency (optimum pay-back) may be considered.
The icon selections will allow you to quickly navigate through
the various operations of the program.
This software can be used on the MS Windows operating system.
