Thermal Properties are typically first thought of when selecting an insulation material. Other properties must be considered when choosing an insulation type.
Once an industrial insulation project is complete, what happens next? That’s where maintenance of the system becomes an after project component. Below you will find crucial factors to take into consideration after the project is complete.
A properly designed and installed insulation system will require periodic maintenance. Over time, any mechanical insulation system can become damaged, and if no maintenance plan is in place, repairs will have a costly effect. While also posing other risks which include the following.
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.

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.
