Insulation systems perform a multiple of special functions for cold systems. Much like the right clothing and equipment for given activity and conditions keep us safe and allow us to operate at our best, appropriate use of insulation and accessories keeps out moisture and contaminants from the surrounding plant environment and processes, minimizing the risk of corrosion and mold damage. They also keep process lines operating at their intended temperature, witch reduces energy waste and operating cost.
Insulation pays for itself
Most insulation end users are aware that thermal insulation pays for itself through energy saving. Heat loss from uninsulated pipes and equipment will be far greater than from the same pipes and equipment with insulation, with the ratio depending on the service temperature, ambient conditions and insulation type and thickness.
