|Publication Date:||10 September 1998|
|ICS Code (Heat recovery. Thermal insulation):||27.220|
1.1 This practice is intended as a dimensional standard for preformed rigid thermal insulation for pipes and tubing.
1.2 This practice covers insulation supplied in cylindrical sections, usually split into half-sections, and lists recommended inner and outer diameters of insulation having nominal wall thicknesses from 1 to 5 in. (25 to 127 mm) to fit over standard sizes of pipe and tubing.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in SI units are provided for information only.
