Reduce the Risk of Mold Growth on Mechanical Systems

Posted by Brittney Fells on Jun 14, 2018 9:53:00 AM

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.

Insulation Tips for Breweries

Posted by Brittney Fells on Jun 6, 2018 10:02:00 AM

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.

Ethanol-Alternative Fuel Basics

Posted by Brittney Fells on May 14, 2018 10:25:00 AM

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 Industry and Industrial Insulation

Posted by Brittney Fells on May 4, 2018 10:03:00 AM

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.

What is NRC and STC?

Posted by Brittney Fells on Jan 18, 2018 10:06:00 AM

 

The two terms Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) and Sound Transmission Class (STC) can be confusing, and both are important to know when choosing soundproofing materials for mechanical piping systems. While one measures the build-up of noise within a space, the other measures the sound transmission between spaces. This blog will cover the difference between the two ratings.
