Boiler Heat Loss Test Object

boiler heat loss test object

My original boiler heat loss test object was a round disc of mild steel and copper. However, this doesn’t relate that well to the actual boiler. This is so that I can test different types of boiler insulation and multi-layer insulation. My original idea for measuring the thermal insulation for the boiler was to make a … Read more

Thermal Insulation of a Boiler

thermal insulation of a boiler

After a few measurements on the vertical boiler, using the cooling curve to estimate heat loss, I achieved a reasonable level of thermal insulation. However, can I turn this into a more methodical approach in the home workshop? I can electrically heat a block of metal, it would be best if this was copper. Copper would … Read more
