Definition Difference—The thermal conductivity value listed by C is defined differently than that for C, so one should not expect to find the same values listed. By contrast, test method ASTM C takes much smaller increments of temperature and represents the mean temperature as the average of those narrow increments. He has over 35 years of experience working in the thermal insulation industry. High-temperature fiber insulations are fibrous insulations, varying in flexibility, density, and composition, with or without binders.
The Laws of Average and Thermal Performance qstm Refractory Insulation Materials Depending on the application, refractory insulation uses two types of thermal testing standards: The standard contains requirements for thermal conductivity, density, maximum use temperature, non-fibrous shot content, linear shrinkage, and tensile strength.
The answer appears to have two roots:. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The guarded hot plate test method could be considered a primary resource for generating new thermal conductivity data, and C tests could be used for the top end of the temperature range.
Applications include kitchen exhaust grease ducts, ventilation ducts, stairwell pressurization ducts, smoke extraction, chemical fume exhaust ducts, and refuse and trash chutes. Additionally, they often must be made in a form that is relatively easy to install so as to be economical in their final application.
Jack and his sister Jill both started businesses on January 1, As with all insulation materials, its thermal conductivity changes with mean temperature. Their business histories over the first 11 years show striking similarities—and differences:.
The pins and wire mesh ensure the insulation material is firmly applied and will resist the effects c8892 vibration and external forces. High-Temperature Fiber High-temperature fiber insulations are fibrous insulations, varying in flexibility, density, and composition, with or without binders. They may be used to cover plastic pipe and cables to limit flame spread and smoke generation in fire-rated air plenums.
What Is Average? – Insulation Outlook
The basic types of materials are loose, inorganic fibers either RCF or AES combined with a liquid, water-based chemical binder. Note that there are 11 data points, since each curve has a beginning and ending data point. The surface to which pneumatically applied high-temperature fiber insulation is applied is typically prepared with weld pins and wire mesh, the d892 being applied a aetm off the surface 1 inch less than the finished thickness.
Also, this type of fiber insulation is typically dimensionally ashm with exposure to the maximum rate temperature for the particular type I, II, or III. The different approaches illustrate that the average thermal conductivity value over a large temperature range, in general, can be significantly different from the thermal conductivity value at the average temperature of that range.

This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions.
The liquid binder consists of a mixture of both organic and inorganic colloidal silica materials, and is typically added in sufficient quantity to provide the fibers with necessary adhesion to the applied surface; cohesion to one another; and the required physical properties of the installed, dry insulation. As the voice of the U. The following hypothetical situation illustrates how different approaches to averaging can yield vastly different values.
Exploring Insulation Materials
The user shall establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use. Jill calculated her average three ways, getting different answers each time: These may present a situation similar to the Jack-and-Jill example.
Standard test procedures are used to measure performance as determined by material properties. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. With ASTM C, the measured thermal conductivity value associated with a specific temperature is the actual value of thermal d892 at that mean temperature—i.
It would be important to design a coordinated program to harmonize data by the two methods in the overlapping temperature range. He is a registered professional engineer. Jack calculated his average the same three ways, but he got the same result each time: The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units which are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
ASTM materials standards can list typical or limiting values as a guide for comparing available products and making informed purchase decisions.
Thermal conductivity data tabulated in ASTM C is based on studies made more than 30 years ago; it may be time to reexamine the standard to enhance its usefulness. Material and test standards for thermal insulation materials provide valuable support to specifiers, designers, and users working with high-temperature products. The composition can be described as follows: You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server.
Mathematically, it is the thermal conductivity one approaches, in theory, as the c8892 used in the measurement approaches zero. The C method was originally developed for rigid, higher cc892 refractory materials with thermal conductivity values 3 to 10 times asmt than those for typical thermal insulation materials.
Products are classified into five types by maximum use temperature and five grades by density. If the thermal conductivity-mean temperature relationship is linear, or nearly linear, this approach will suffice.
Figure 1 shows these values graphically so they can be more easily compared. C lists quite different thermal conductivity values one for each of the two methods for this grade, shown in Table 2.
To meet quality standards, these materials must retain the same properties consistently from production batch to production batch.
