The Comparison of Thermal Insulation Materials for a Process Pipeline


Article Preview

the article describes and compares thermal insulation materials used for heat insulation of a process pipeline transporting natural gas after its pressure reduction. The following thermal insulation materials are examined: mineral wool and cellular rubber substance. Linear thermal resistance has been chosen as the essential property of the materials.
