HeatTransfer Through Lagged Pipe

Descriptionof Heat Transfer Through Lagged Pipe

Heat Transfer Through Lagged Pipe setupis designed and fabricated to study lagging phenomenon in case of pipes. Itconsists of three concentric pipes of small thickness as compared to diameterand are arranged concentrically, and closed with the help of two discs. Twodifferent insulating materials fill the annuli between the cylinders compactly.Temperature Sensors are fitted to measure the temperature of pipe walls forradial outward heat flow measurement. Inside the inner pipe, a Nichrome wireheater is placed axially. Heat input to the heater is given through a variacand measured by Digital Voltmeter and Digital Ammeter. By varying theheat-input rates, wide range of experiments can be performed by HeatTransfer Through Lagged Pipe.

HeatTransfer Through Lagged Pipe Experimentation:

  • To estimate the actual rate of heat transferthrough the composite cylinders from the measured interface temperature of thetwo insulating materials with known thermal conductivities.
  • To determine the effective thermalconductivity of the composite cylinder.
  • To compare the theoretical temperatureprofile within the composite cylinders, with that of observed profile

UtilitiesRequired For Heat Transfer Through Lagged Pipe:

  • Electricity Supply : 1 Phase, 220 V AC, 2Amp.
  • Table for set-up support.
