As we have discussed before in, “Corrosion Under Insulation: What You Need to Know” corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a real threat to many industries, including refining, petrochemical, and power.
Moisture control is something that every plant and facility struggles with, especially ones with pipes and ducts carrying fluids at below-ambient temperatures. When it comes to condensation and mechanical systems, there are three issues to be aware of.
Topics: industrial insulation, mechanical insulation, mechanical piping systems, piping, mold growth, preventing mold growth, below-ambient systems, closed-cell insulation, insulation system, condensation control, moisture control
Recently we supplied insulation for a small brewery tank manufacturer, and it got us thinking that we should share our insulation tips for breweries because many of us are not aware of the role that properly insulated equipment plays in creating a perfect, cold brewed beer.
For those who do not know alternative fuel (also known as non-conventional and advanced fuel) is a fuel other than gasoline for powering motor vehicles, such as ethanol, natural gas, hydrogen, propane, or electricity. Often, they produce less pollution than gasoline or diesel.
Pharmaceutical production requires a wide range of infrastructure types to operate. The heating and cooling of materials through processes such as distillation and crystallization require a considerable amount of energy. Industrial insulation aids in minimizing the energy cost while also benefiting other parts of these facilities such as the mechanical piping system.
The pulp and paper industry is one of the largest industrial sectors in the global marketplace. The industry manufactures a wide range of commercial paper products, including tissue paper, glossy paper, catalog paper, drawing paper, cards, newspapers, etc.
Food and beverage plants contain numerous below ambient water systems and below ambient equipment such as pumps, heat exchangers, vessels, and extensive refrigerant piping. These systems all need a thermally efficient, highly moisture resistant, and long-life insulation system.
Electricity is a vital part of our everyday lives and powers everything we touch or do on many levels. Most of our electricity is generated from traditional fuels, such as coal, natural gas, hydro and nuclear. Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind have grown over the last few decades. What do all of these have in common? Industrial insulation.

The chemical industry produces more than 70,000 products that, as consumers, we interact with daily. Items such as detergents, soaps, and perfumes are just a handful of examples. These products are all purchased directly by the consumer; others are used as intermediates to make other products.
The oil and gas industry employs hundreds of thousands of workers worldwide and generates billions of dollars globally each year. It is easy to say that this industry is a global powerhouse.
