  • Heat Flow Analysis - Simulating Real-World Conditions
    Heat Flow Simulation

    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 increasingly 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.
