Whether for thermal efficiency, safety or sustainability in industrial insulation:KIMMCO-ISOVER has developed a complete range, up to 700°C temperatures , for power generation, oil and gas, chemical and other processing industry.
Why insulation in industry
There are numerous reasons for thermal insulation of equipment and processes:
Many industrial installations work at high pressure, with fast moving media and often turbulence, all of which can cause high noise levels. Acoustic insulation in this field therefore has to protect the hearing of personnel working close by and, particularly in urban areas and to reduce ambient sound in the local environment.
Protection against Corrosion under insulation
Highly alloyed austenitic steels (alloys of chrome, nickel and molybdenum) are predisposed to tensile stress corrosion (stress corrosion cracking), caused mainly by water soluble ions, such as chlorides. As temperature increases, so does the risk of stress corrosion cracking. All KIMMCO-ISOVER industrial products are therefore low in chlorides.
The risk of fire in industrial environments is much higher than in building and other applications, particularly when working with welding and grinding equipment in high temperature environments containing flammable and /or explosive media. Protect personnel and equipment it is therefore important that all steps are taken to protect possible fire sources and prevent fires starting. Passive fire protection using non-combustible materials is the best way to eliminate these risks from the beginning or prevent fire from spreading. That is why all KIMMCO-ISOVER industrial insulation products offer
