Compare The Thermal Conductivity Of Copper And Stainless Steel

Kukel International Group Limited | Updated: May 14, 2018

Under the same conditions, the thermal conductivity of copper is as high as 400 (at room temperature), whereas the thermal conductivity of stainless steel is only 16 (at room temperature). This means that a unit of gas burning can heat a unit of water in a copper tank to a fixed temperature. For a stainless steel tank, 25 units of gas are required, which is 25 times that of a copper tank (ignoring changes in thermal conductivity and heat loss after temperature rise)!
