Depending on temperature, service type, and location of the piping, a variety of different pipe insulation materials are used to maintain the performance and longevity of the pipe system.
Perlite pipe and block insulation is an excellent product for application on high temperature piping and equipment because of its compressive strength, low thermal conductivity and corrosion inhibiting properties. Perlite is the preferred product for stainless steel piping which is susceptible to stress corrosion cracking at operating temperatures above 140°F (60°C).
Calcium Silicate pipe insulation is a high temperature, abuse-resistant pipe and block insulation with exceptional structural strength for use on systems operating up to 1200°F (650°C). Calcium Silicate Pipe and Block Insulation is the preferred product for application on high temperature piping and equipment.
FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation, is ideal for pipes, equipment, vessels, tanks, chemical processing and above and underground steam and chilled water piping. FOAMGLAS® has operating temperatures from-450°F to +900°F (-268°C to +482°C).
Mineral wool pipe insulation is a non-combustible, fire resistant, water repellent yet vapor permeable insulation material. Mineral wool effectively reduces noise while providing excellent thermal performances. It is ideal for steam and process pipe systems operating at temperatures up to 1200°C.
Polyisocyanurate Pipe Insulation is a closed cell, high performance insulation for pipe, vessel, equipment and duct applications.TRYMER® Polyisocyanurate Pipe Insulation can be used within the service range of -297°F to 300°F (-183°C to 149°C).
Aluminum Roll Insulation Jacketing
Aluminum Roll Jacketing is recommended for insulated piping, tanks and vessels up to 8 feet in diameter. Deep corrugated sheets are recommended for diameters greater than 8 feet.
Stainless Steel Roll Jacketing
The stainless steels have a melt point of approximately 2500F providing optimum fire protection.Stainless Steel jacketing is recommended for insulated piping, tanks and vessels less than 8 feet in diameter.Deep corrugated sheets are recommended for diameters greater than 8 feet.
Silicone Coated Cloth Insulation Jacketing
Silicone coated cloth is a fiberglass fabric coated with silver silicone rubber.It has high resistance to heat, abrasion, flexing tears and punctures. Applications include removable insulation pads, protective flange shields and equipment covers, welding curtains and expansion joints.
