Insulation Library

The Edit Insulations panel is accessed from the Library menu. This panel allows you to view the insulation data provided with AFT Fathom, or to add, edit or delete user defined insulation materials. Insulation library items are used for heat transfer calculations in pipes.

To add a new insulation material click Add New Insulation, then enter the data in the Insulation Physical Properties window. The insulation thermal conductivity is entered as a function of temperature, and density as a constant.

Insulation data can be applied directly to pipes, and can also be associated with the Pipe Material Library as insulation data sets.
