We are designing facilities that will handle cryogenic liquids (-160 C). Piping and equipment will be insulated not only to minimize heat transfer into these fluids, but also for protection of personnel from cold burns. We have seen conflicting guidance on the minimum allowable surface temperature for insulation to prevent cold burns. Can you cite any definitive guidelines for allowable surface temperatures to prevent cold burns? Thanks and best regards, Vic Victor H. Edwards, Ph. D., P. E.
