ArmWin for the Win
ArmWin® is Armacell’s professional technical calculator which helps mechanical engineers, contractors and architects calculate the proper technical values, such as thickness, to be specified on a job using the ArmaFlex® family of products. Installing the proper elastomeric insulation thickness to prevent condensation and heat loss is key to the long-term performance of mechanical HVAC, plumbing and refrigeration systems.
Thickness is Crucial
The main task of low-temperature insulation is to prevent condensation. In addition to the quality of the material and installation, the correct insulation thickness is required to achieve long-term condensation control even under critical conditions. To calculate the insulation thickness it is necessary to define the line and ambient temperatures as well as the relative humidity. Knowing these figures is then required in order to determine the thermal conductivity and heat transfer coefficient of both the insulation and the object (pipe / duct etc.) to be insulated. These calculations can be made much more easily using ArmWin.
Technical Values Measured and Calculated
- Surface temperature
- Condensation prevention level
- Heat loss
- Change in temperature of flowing medium
- Change in temperature of stationary medium
- Freezing time
Online and Mobile App
ArmWin can be used on the go on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets as well as on your computer. This powerful tool can be used to carry out all the common technical calculations in refrigeration, plumbing, air-conditioning and heating applications. Users of ArmWin can even save project-related results for further use and forward reports via email to themselves, colleagues or clients – even on the job site. The ArmWin app is available for Apple iOS and Android operating systems and works best on Firefox and Chrome web browsers.
