Question Description

I’m stuck on a question and need an explanation.

Analyze heat lost from a 6-inch OD steam line. The line carries high-pressure steam throughout the factory at 400 psi, 400 oF. Specify type and thickness for insulating the steam line. Compare the cost of energy lost with and without pipe insulation. You can assume steam is generated 8000 hours/year. Compare energy cost reductions based upon a gas fired boiler and a fuel oil fired boiler. Assume boiler energy input at 6.5(106) Btu/hr.
