Pipe Insulating (705)7335154
When your pipes are sweating and dripping or freezing call us. we insulate pipes.
Reasons to Insulate Piping and Equipment
Insulations for commercial and industrial systems are generally divided into three categories:
Thermal – suitable for temperatures from -100°F to 1200°F
Cryogenic – suitable for temperatures below -100°F
Refractory – suitable for temperatures above 1200°F
Conserves Energy by Reducing Heat Loss or Gain
Controls Surface Temperatures for Personnel Protection and Comfort
Fiber glass, rock wool, and slag wool insulation systems reduce the surface temperature of piping and equipment to a safer level, resulting in increased worker safety and the avoidance of worker downtime due to injury.
Facilitates Process Temperature Control
By reducing heat loss or gain, fiber glass, rock wool, and slag wool insulation can help maintain the process temperature to a pre-determined value. Insulation thickness must be sufficient to limit the heat loss in a dynamic system or limit the temperature drop, with time, in a static system.
Prevents Condensation on Cold Surfaces
Specifying sufficient insulation thickness with a good vapor retarder is the most effective means of controlling condensation and limiting corrosion on cold piping, ducts, chillers, and roof drains. Sufficient thickness is needed to keep the outer most surface temperature above the dewpoint temperature of the ambient air.
Prevents or Reduces Damage to Equipment From Exposure to Fire or Corrosive Atmospheres
When used in combination with other materials, fiber glass, rock wool, and slag wool insulation help provide fire protection in fire stop systems, grease- and air-duct fireproofing, and electrical and communications conduit and cable protection.
