3E Plus Program Overview
-Determines economic thickness of insulations based on return on investment for chosen fuel cost, installed cost, tax rates, maintenance, etc.
-Calculates the amount of insulation needed for personnel protection for various design conditions.
-Calculates the thickness of insulation needed for condensation control.
-Calculates greenhouse gas emissions and reductions.
-Determines surface temperature and heat loss/gain calculations of individual insulation thickness up to 10 inches (250 mm).
-Solves for outside insulated surface temperatures for all types of insulation applications at different process temperatures and various configurations.
-Calculates bare vs. insulated heat loss efficiency percentages for horizontal and vertical piping, ducts and flat surfaces.
-Performs calculations for various flat surfaces, selected pipe sizes and all standard iron pipe sizes from 1/2" to 48" (15 - 1200 mm).
-Calculates heat loss/gain and outside insulated surface temperatures for any insulation material provided the thermal conductivity, associated mean temperatures, and temperature limit are entered by the user.
3E Plus® Program Details
-3E Plus operates in a Windows® 98, 2000, and XP environments.
-Performs calculations for most types of insulation materials and accepts performance data provided by the user for other materials.
