This Tip of the Month illustrates the impact of pipe insulation for natural gases being transported by pipeline. As the natural gases move along the pipe its pressure and temperature change due to the Joule-Thompson effect, frictional loss, elevation change, acceleration, and heat transfer to or from surroundings. Due to pressure and temperature change, liquidContinue Reading
