Aerogel Insulation Stops Pipe Heat Loss, Improves Safety in Tight Spaces

Thin insulation avoids damage during pipe installation without cladding
  • Insulate piping that has a process temperature of 120°C (248°F).
  • The insulation objectives were to:
  1. Eliminate heat dispersion from the piping into the surrounding hall.
  2. Allow operators to unscrew the bolts without removing nor damaging the insulation.
  3. Reduce the surface touch temperature to a safe level using the thinnest possible insulation.
  4. Provide a finished surface that didn´t require metallic cladding.
  • Agosti Isolazioni Termiche installed an aerogel solution of two layers of 4 mm Pyrogel® 4250 using a specifically chosen adhesive that was tested prior to installation.
  • The external surface was covered with layers of varnish that were tested prior to installation.
  • The end user observed a dramatic reduction of the external surface temperature with only an 8 mm insulation thickness, reducing heat loss and energy consumption significantly.
  • The insulation was thin enough to avoid damage during pipe mounting/dismounting, with no metallic cladding required.
  • The insulation was applied directly on the pipes, saving valuable time during mounting and dismounting.
  • The insulation noticeably improved operator working conditions near the hot pipes.
