Does anyone know which calculation can be applied (or if there is a calculator available) to determine if an insulated pipe will freeze (or how long it will take to freeze)?
We have a scenario where we specified a heat trace system to be used on branch lines extending from the building to an exposed exterior soffit that is subject to freezing conditions. Due to cost concerns, the school/contractor want to remove the heat trace and just insulate the pipe. Thanks.
