When designing district heating systems, many factors must be taken into account if the systems are to be economical and provide consumers with reliable energy supplies. Such systems should therefore ideally be dimensioned by consulting engineers using complex design software.
It is, however, possible to design relatively short pipelines and/or small distribution networks using a series of tables containing design data.
The sections dealing with specific pipes and components therefore contain such tabulated data for use in pipeline design of district heating systems.
Pressure drop and pipe capacity values are based on Colebrook and White’s formula at a water temperature of 80°C.
Please note that the tables are for guidance purposes only. Results based on the data they contain should only be considered approximate and should always be verified by a consulting engineer, before used to design district heating systems.
