Thermal Conductivity Of Insulating Slab

The set-up is designed to determine thermal conductivity of insulating materials in the form of slab. The apparatus consists of main central heater and ring guard heater, sandwiched between the specimens. Cooling plates are provided on either side ofthe specimen. Two identical specimens are clamped between heater that ensures unidirectional heat flow through specimen. The whole assembly is kept in chamber andinsulated by ceramic wool insulation around the set-up.
