Freezing Time

Freezing Point Calculator

The exact term for this is “freezing time “with a sudden shut-off pipe. So what happens when a flowing line (tube) is blocked?
Again, different scenarios can be calculated with to determine the insulation thickness to span a period of time or who have an existing insulation, and want to calculate the period.

In this Freezing time calculation, several entries are necessary:

First, the media plays a big role. For this we need the heat capacity (for water 4186 J / kg) and the density of the medium (water at 1000 kg / m³).
Similarly to an accepting ice fraction is indicated. The default for this is 25%.

Interpretation of Freezing Time

In this example, we calculate the insulation thickness, if a specific time is given.

Given are:

Dimensionless ambient temperature
Desired time temperature of the medium
Selected insulation surface
Various information about the medium ice content
The output will be a complete calculation, including heat and electricity savings
Calculate the time for Freezing

In this example, we calculate the time when an insulation thickness indicated with  ISOWTC freezing point calculator.

Given are:
Dimensionless ambient temperature
Selected insulation temperature of the medium
Selected surface insulation thickness
Various information about the medium ice content.
The output will be a complete freezing time calculation, including heat and electricity savings
