What type of pipes need insulation?
Chilled water, steam pipes, domestic hot water, domestic cold water pipes need insulation.
Insulation helps with noise and condensation control as well as energy conservation and provides added protection for personnel. So by having the proper insulation, you will save on your energy bill, stop sweating, reduce heat loss, and help the environment.
Insulation helps with noise and condensation control as well as energy conservation and provides added protection for personnel. So, a good rule of thumb is that if you can feel the temperature outside the exposed pipes — i.e., if you feel coolness or heat radiating from the pipe — it most likely needs insulation.
Why is it important to insulate pipes?
In an industrial setting, pipes can reach extremely hot temperatures. This increases the risk of personnel injury should they come into direct contact with the surfaces. Additionally, insulating pipes is important in preventing moisture build-up.
Not only does insulation protect people, but it also protects your pipes. By reducing moisture build-up and maintaining consistent temperatures all year round, insulation reduces the risk of damage being done on pipes especially in colder months.
What are the best materials for pipe insulation?
There is no straightforward answer for this as the "best insulation" will really depend on the type of project and pipe you are working with. Some of the most common types of insulation used on industrial pipes are fiberglass insulation, foam insulation, Mineral Wool and Calsil
To find out which is the best insulation for your particular project, reach out to us. We're excited to explain all your options to you and find the perfect solution for your insulation problem.
What temperatures is fiberglass pipe insulation designed for?
Fiberglass insulation is designed to be used on pipes with a surface temperature range of 0°F to 850°F. This converts to -18°C to 454°C. Fiberglass pipe insulation is not suitable for applications outside this temperature. If your project exceeds this temperature range, consider other types of pipe insulation.
