Just curious, how much heat loss do you get when you recirculate your mash? Do you apply low heat while recirculating?

this was the first time i recirculated. i hit my mash temp of 158, but it started dropping quickly. i put the burner on real low and didn't heat back up. i was down to 150 and turned the heat up more, it took a little trial and error but was able to dial it in. got back up to my mash temp at roughly 30 minutes into the mash. i didn't use a false bottom, just braided line. no scorthing of the keg, just don't crank the heat. apply little heat slowly until you see the temp starting to rise, use patience.

I'm still new at brewing and have done a few extract brews, can you explain to me what is happening and how to make one of these setups?
