|Heat Flow Analysis - Simulating Real-World Conditions
When trying to determine the best insulation solution
for a particular application, many variables need to be
taken into account.
Is the purpose of the insulation to maintain a high
exhaust temperature in order to ensure optimal
catalytic performance, or perhaps to achieve as
low as possible outside touch temperature to protect
personnel from injury?
What about air flow, ambient temperature, exhaust
configuration, humidity, sunlight, etc.? All these
factors can effect the temperature of the exhaust as it
flows through the exhaust system, and consequently
the effectiveness of various forms of insulation.
Flow Simulation Software has become
sophisticated in simulating real-world situations, and
allowing companies to accurately predict exhaust
characteristics. Armed with this analysis, companies
can better determine which insulation solutions are
the right ones for their application even before any
prototype systems are built.
