Code of practice for thermal insulation of pipework and equipment in the temperature range of -100 degrees C to +870 degrees C

Executive summary

Code of practice for thermal insulation of pipework and equipment.

Abstract

This British Standard code of practice describes aspects of thermal insulation for pipework and equipment in the temperature range –100 degrees C to +870 degrees C. The installation techniques described in this standard can be used outside the temperature range indicated, however, it is recommended that for such applications specialist advice  is sought.

This code of practice acknowledges that the application of thermal insulation will lead to a reduction in greenhouse gases. It does not cover structural insulation of buildings and cold stores, fire protection of structures, refractory linings of plant, airborne installations and all external underground mains.

This standard explains the basic principles that should be followed in selecting insulating systems for specific requirements.
