Aerogel Insulation Reduces Heat Loss on Small Pipes in Confined Spaces

Meets Stringent Energy Conservation Demands
  • Insulation of school hot water pipes in confined spaces.
  • The insulation was used to prevent heat loss and protect personnel. Maximum temperature of pipes can exceed 80°C (176°F).
  • This application demanded a highly efficient insulation system to meet the required heat loss and energy conservation demands of the local government.
  • Traditional materials such as fiberglass and PIR could not meet the energy savings requirements in the confined spaces available.
  • The Swiss engineering consultancy EJ Bertsch worked with AGI to develop an aerogel small-diameter pipe insulation solution that met all requirements.
  • A single layer of 6.5 mm Spaceloft™ 6200 and 1 mm alu cladding was ideal to meet the required hot side temperature.
  • The full installation was carried out by AGI.
  • The heat loss was reduced to 7.3 W/mt.
  • The touch temperature was reduced to below 30°C (86°F).
  • The engineering company specified a new hospital project in Lucerne to be insulated with Aspen Aerogels materials.
