Pipe insulation and pipe insulation

Insulate hot water pipes and insulate

Non-insulated hot water pipes lose annually between 80 and 100 kWh per meter of pipe. By insulation, these energy losses can be reduced by almost 80 percent. It is important that the conditions laid down in the EnEV Mindestdämmdicken be respected. These refer to an insulating material having a rated value of thermal conductivity of 0.035 W / (mK) as z. As non-combustible glass wool pipe shells have. Here, the insulation thickness is identical to the (possibly rounded) pipe internal diameter. By selecting a material with higher thermal conductivity, such as 0.040 W / (mK), the minimum thicknesses have to be converted. In any case, a higher insulation thickness is needed.

The classification of building materials classified in terms of their fire behavior: In the groups A1 and A2 one finds the "nonflammable" Building materials, in the B1 "fire-resistant" and B2 in the "normally inflammable", "inflammable" (B3) building materials are in the construction industry in this country not admitted. Mineral building materials such as perlite, expanded clay or mineral fiber, are in principle non-combustible - as long as it does not bond with "flammable" received, are laminated, for example with a film.
