Energy efficiency of heating networks depends on the costs of the manufacture of insulation materials and components, its installation and exploitation of insulating jacket. As insulation materials for insulation of heating networks, products based on rock wool, polyurethane foam extruded polystyrene foam, foam rubber and polyethylene foam. In this contribution introduced basic principles of calculating the thickness of the thermal insulation of a pipeline by the value of the standard density of the heat flow are given using an example of the use of products based on polyethylene foam. Calculation of the heat flux from the surface of the heat-insulating structure is carried out at a given thickness of the heat-insulating layer if there is a need to determine heat loss (or cold loss). The basis for the calculation is a mathematical model of heat transfer, a developed calculation algorithm and a computer program. The method of installation of thermal insulation depends on the diameter of the pipeline and the selected type of product. Insulating cylinders or cylinders in combination with heat-insulating mats are used for pipelines of small diameters. Roll materials are used to isolate large diameters. Products are fixed on pipelines using mechanical fasteners.
