This Calculator is for Standard (STD) Weight Steel Pipe and Empty or Full of Contents, with/without Insulation, and with/without Ice Buildup

 Input Data: Specific Gravity of Contents = Insulation Thickness, t(insul) = in. Insulation Density = pcf Ice Thickness, t(ice) = in. Results: Inputs are colored Yellow Combination Weights (plf) Nominal Properties for Standard weight (STD) pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the ITT Grinnell Pipe Hanger and Engineering Manual. Outside Properties for Standard weight (STD) pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the ITT Grinnell Pipe Hanger and Engineering Manual. Inside Properties for Standard weight (STD) pipe are generally taken where available from the AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 13th Edition (CD Database), and then otherwise from the ITT Grinnell Pipe Hanger and Engineering Manual.

Contents Weight = (SG*w(contents))*(p*ID2/4)/144 (Note: densitiy of water is assumed = 62.4 pcf.) Insulation Weight = w(insul)*(t(insul)/12)*(p*(OD+t(insul))/12) Ice Weight = w(ice)*(t(ice)/12)*(p*(OD+2*t(insul)+t(ice))/12) (Note: density of ice is assumed = 56.0 pcf.)
