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.
-Provides calculations for many fuel types and five different surface orientations. User can add own fuel combinations.
-Uses calculations and default values from independent sources. Contains updated methodology from the most recent version of ASTM C 680 Standard Practices for Determination of Heat Gain or Loss and the Surface Temperature of Insulation Piping on Equipment Systems by the Use of a Computer System.
-Allows user to customize program by adding and saving individual company's insulation installed cost estimates.
-Has all the latest thermal curves contained in the ASTM material standards.
-Automatically calculates thickness tables.
-Calculates in both metric and inch-pound units.
