Boiler Tube Weight Chart
The weight of the pipe is dependent on the weightdensity of the material with which the pipe is made. It also depends on thephysical volume of the pipe. Weight density can be defined as the measurementof the amount of compactness of material of the pipe (it is expressed inpounds/ft³). In the Boiler Tube Weight Calculator, the volume of the pipe is calculated by multiplying its surfacearea with thickness. It is to be noted that the surface of the pipe equals thatof a cylinder. It can also be described in terms of square inches that coverthe curved slope side. At (companyname), we have experienced engineers who can prepare the Boiler Tube Weight Chart with precision.
Before starting with Heat Exchanger Tube Weight Estimation, it is essential to gatherall the important information like the outer diameter of the pipe. It can bemeasured by calculating the length of the straight line that runs through themiddle of the pipe (and connects the two pints on the surface of the pipe).Before using the Boiler Tube Weight Calculator, the pipe’s wall thickness should also be known. The unit ofthese measurements should be in inches. Finally, it is essential to know thelength of the pipe (in feet).
The Heat Exchanger Tube Weight Calculator formula to determine weight per foot is asfollows:
Wt/ft = 10.69(outer diameter - wall thickness)*wall thickness
As per the ASTM calculation, it is assumed thatthe tube manufactured has consistent wall thickness. Note that the actual wallthickness is always thicker than the minimum one specified. The Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Tubes Calculator formula is accepted by industrial standards, but in readily, thecold-drawn tube is above the minimum specification by 6-8%.
