Nonresidential Industrial Pipe Insulation & Verification

Measure descriptions are subject to change.

Proposal Description

This proposal would require mandatory requirements for process load pipe and tank insulation and add a mandatory requirement to field verify insulation. This proposal includes two measures:

  • Measure A: Process load Insulation: Add a mandatory requirement for process load pipe insulation. 
  • Measure B: Process load Insulation Verification: Add a mandatory requirement for field verification of pipe insulation quality. 

All measures would apply to nonresidential buildings with nonresidential process heating and cooling piping over ½ inch in diameter and process water over 2 inches in diameter. The proposed measures apply to new construction, additions, and alterations. 

The proposed nonresidential process loads insulation and verification would reduce the energy use of the process load systems by adding mandatory requirement for pipe insulation and installation verification.
