Vapor barriers are extremely important when insulating mechanical piping, especially cold systems, particularly in high humidity conditions such as the gulf coast. Proper insulation of these pipes will help avoid massive failures that could lead to liability exposure. Also, consideration should be given to joint sealing, as this is also critical to long-term quality and function of the mechanical pipe system.
When it comes to the material makeup of a removable insulation blanket, there are a number of material combinations that can be used for the outer facing. Fabricators turn to high-temperature fabrics because they offer strength, durability and heat resistance.
Removable Insulation Blanket,
Mechanical piping systems can produce significant noise if they are not properly insulated. A well designed acoustical lagging system, will provide effective noise reduction and also block noise. If the reduction of noise is required, Vinaflex™ VP is the answer.

Calcium silicate is considered a thermal insulation and is composed of hydrous calcium silicate, which contains reinforcing fibers and has a natural white color. It is supplied in block form for the fabrication of insulation for mechanical piping applications. It is often commonly used as a safe alternative to asbestos for high-temperature insulation materials.

Insulation jacketing consist of an exterior covering that is wrapped around a tubing or pipe insulation to protect the insulation from moisture, wear and mechanical damage. The jacketing plays a significant role in the effectiveness of the insulation.
Sustainable design in industrial insulation systems is an important factor to take into consideration, and the demand for feasible insulating products with an eco-friendly impact continues to grow. Cellular glass insulation offers exceptional physical characteristics that in the end benefit the user.
Fabricated Pipe Insulation,
Previously we discussed the difference between FSK and ASJ facings. Products that play a large role with facings are tapes and mastics, which ensures that the facing remains crisp and seamless.
Pressure sensitive tape or insulating tape is an essential component of any installation, repair and manufacturing project. Insulation tapes can help reinforce your work for years of worry-free and maintenance-free service.
