Applications for Pipe Insulation.

Prevents or Reduces Damage to Equipment from Exposure to Fire or Corrosive Atmospheres When used in combination with other materials, fiber glass and rock 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.

Facilitates Process Temperature Control by reducing heat loss or gain, 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.

Controls Surface Temperatures for Personnel Protection and Comfort Insulation reduces the surface temperature of piping or equipment to a safer level, resulting in increased worker safety and the avoidance of worker downtime due to injury.

Conserves Energy by Reducing Heat Loss or Gain Properly designed and installed insulation systems immediately reduce the need for energy, a costly ingredient of every product made.

Controls Noise Special or standard insulation materials can be used to encase or enclose a noise generating source, forming a sound barrier between the source and the surrounding area. Insulation installed in walls and ceilings can provide a barrier to the entry of sound from the outside or other rooms.

Metal Jacketing System

Aluminum or Stainless steel jacketing is good for mechanical abuse and for exterior covering of insulated pipes. Aluminum jacketing can be installed with either drill screws or banding and seals; Aluminum Jacketing is made out of .016, .020 or .024, this comes with Different finishes (Smooth, Stucco, Cross Crimped) Aluminum Rolls comes in 3 foot sections. The Aluminum Jacketing is cut and rolled to fit each size of pipe insulation correctly.

Field and Factory-applied Non-metal Jacketing can be of the plastic, laminated foil-scrim-Kraft treated paper or fabric types. Factory-applied jacketing provides a longitudinal overlap (often self-adhering) for sealing purposes. Field-applied jacketing must be measured and cut to provide proper overlapping at longitudinal and circumferential joints.

There is also painted sheet & jacketing. Polyester Painted Sheet and Jacketing provide a cost effective protection in exterior in exterior applications. Bare aluminum is first physically and chemically cleaned, primer (conversion) coated, and finally top coated with a propriety composite polyester resin paint which has excellent resistance to U.V. degradation to prevent chalking and fading in severe environments. The special stain resistant resin also improves scratch and metal marking resistance. The coating is durable but flexible enough to be embossed and easily take a 1-T bend when forming.

    Insulation Jacketing Tips & Information

  • 1) All Insulated piping shall be weatherproofed with Aluminum or Stainless steel jacketing Jacket with moisture barrier.
  • 2) All metal installation shall be installed to shed water.
  • 3) The best way to prevent water penetration is by overlapping the metal jacket a least 3’’ on the circumferential lap and also on the adjacent metal.
  • 4) ½’’ or ¾’’ Stainless Steel banding is highly recommended, Spacing shall be at a minimum of 11-inch centers with a band over each circumferential lap.
