1.20. Rapid Estimation of Heat Losses from Oil and Gas Process Piping and Equipment Surfaces

The most important part of the energy strategy in any process industry is energy saving. In this section, a simple-to-use predictive tool that is easier than existing approaches and suitable for process engineers, with fewer computations, is presented for the rapid estimation of heat losses in terms of the wind velocity and the temperature difference between the process piping and equipment surfaces and the surrounding air.
The tool developed in this study can be of immense practical value, as it allows the engineers and scientists to execute a quick check on the heat losses for air in contact with walls or surfaces without opting for any experimental measurements. ...
