Measuring Pipeline Thermal Growth
Measuring Pipeline Thermal Growth Featured in Die Kälte und Klimatechnik
The November 2011 issue of Die Kälte und Klimatechnik, a German cooling and refrigeration publication, featured an article by Larry Thau, Executive Vice President and Chief Technical Officer at Victaulic, about the best practices in accommodating and calculating pipeline thermal growth. In order to effectively accommodate thermal expansion and contraction of pipes in a building, it is imperative to plan for controlled movement. This can be accomplished easily, but the type of piping system, the project parameters and the engineer must be known before construction.
Die Kälte und Klimatechnik is a premier publication in industrial heating and ventilation and has a distribution of 3,800. It covers the generation of air conditioning, cooling, deep freezing, heat pump technology and heat recuperation, as well as other topics. The publication features technical articles and case studies about planning, project management, installation and maintenance of cooling and air conditioning systems for use in industry and commercial installations.
