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 two methods are thus complementary for application over the entire C temperature range. Their business histories over the first 11 years show striking similarities—and differences: Jack and his sister Jill both started businesses on January 1, He has over 35 years of experience atsm in the thermal insulation industry.
Applications include kitchen exhaust grease ducts, ventilation ducts, stairwell pressurization ducts, smoke extraction, chemical fume exhaust ducts, and refuse and trash chutes.
What Is Average? – Insulation Outlook
The insulation shall also be tested for non-fibrous content, linear shrinkage, and tensile strength. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile x892 any time.
If the thermal conductivity-mean temperature relationship is linear, or nearly linear, this approach will suffice. As the voice of the U. While they are not yet covered by an industry specification, an ASTM specification is in development. Products are classified into five types by maximum use temperature and five grades by density.
C c82 quite different thermal conductivity values one for each of the two methods for this grade, shown in Table 2. As mean temperature increases, therefore, the correspondingly larger test temperature differences make it more difficult to devise effective thermal guarding techniques, resulting in greater measurement deviations due to increases in extraneous heat loss. It would be important to design a coordinated program to harmonize data by the sstm methods in the overlapping temperature range.
By contrast, test method ASTM C takes much smaller increments of temperature and represents the mean temperature as the average of those narrow increments. Each different type of material is designed to perform in particular applications over a particular temperature range. The user awtm establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.
The fibers are made from mineral substances such as silica, alumina, calcium, and magnesium processed from the molten state into fibrous form. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
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.
The liquid binder is made from inorganic materials: Conclusions and Recommendations Material and test standards for thermal insulation materials provide valuable support to specifiers, designers, and users working with wstm products.

It should be noted that not all manufacturers of high-temperature fiber products c8892 the ASTM C standard for their products. It is generally regarded as the method of choice for the lower half of the C temperature range.

If two companies manufacturing the same generic material use different test procedures, it is challenging and perhaps even impossible for users to compare performance of the two materials. Definition Difference With ASTM C, the measured thermal conductivity value associated with a specific temperature is the actual value of thermal conductivity at that mean temperature—i.
The insulation should be tested and comply accordingly to physical and mechanical properties of the insulation such as apparent thermal conductivity, density, and temperature of use. However, for a highly non-linear relationship i. Subscription pricing is determined by: Additionally, government organizations need to be able to specify materials using industry standards and reference standard test procedures.

C829 do the different thermal test procedures offer two different sets of results for the same material, tested at the same mean temperature?

ASTM C – 18a Standard Specification for High-Temperature Fiber Blanket Thermal Insulation
Material and test standards for thermal insulation materials provide valuable support to specifiers, designers, and users working with high-temperature products. With ASTM C, the measured thermal conductivity value associated with a specific temperature is the actual value of thermal conductivity at that mean temperature—i.
The materials appear to be simple but are highly engineered to optimize different properties, such as thermal performance, high-temperature performance, compressive strength, rigidity or flexibility, water repellence, flame spread prevention, inhibition of metal surface corrosion, and various health and safety considerations. 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.
Figure 1 shows these values graphically so they can be more easily compared. The standard contains requirements for thermal conductivity, density, maximum use temperature, non-fibrous shot content, linear shrinkage, and tensile strength. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. The pneumatically applied product is separated into three types based on the chemistry and upper use temperature use limit:
