Refineries keep America running. They're the beginning of many supply chains. Without gas and oil refineries, industries across the board would be unable to exist. That's why it's important that our refineries are running as efficiently and safely as possible.
To maintain workplace safety and production levels, sites like this require specific refinery insulation types — including fireproof insulation, pipe insulation, insulation for storage tanks, exhaust ducts, and more — which The Insulation Guy is proud to provide across the country.
Prevent corrosion under insulation and workplace incidents by installing or upgrading the thermal insulation at your refinery today. Quote your project today so you can keep your site (and country) going.

Protect pipes, machinery, and equipment from corrosion under insulation (CUI) by choosing the proper insulation.
Using proper pipe insulation can reduce moisture and condensation levels on hot and cold pipes which may cause CUI. Explore pipe insulation.
Delta-Therm design allows refineries to insulate cables with flameproof, gas-tight, cold-resistant, explosion-proof, and fully grounded mineral insulation.
Protect the refinery and workers. Choose fiberglass insulation graded as fire-resistant or fireproof to reduce the risk of this hazard in the workplace.
We have been a leader in providing industry-specific insulation for a range of industrial applications since 1989. For more than 30 years our insulation experts have been expanding our market nationwide.
Today, we pride ourselves on being truly knowledgeable about all things insulation. No matter the application (or where in the country you are), we are confident in our ability to provide recommendations and reliable insulation solutions that will help your worksite remain as efficient and productive as possible.
Choosing the right type of insulation — and the perfect supplier to help you along the way — is crucial when insulating any type of industrial setting, though especially refineries. Without proper industrial-grade insulation, you can put yourself and employees at risk of hearing damage, burns, and more. Not to mention, equipment and pipes will have a longer lifespan if they are fitted with proper insulation. This means more money in your pocket.

What is the purpose of insulation in oil and gas plants and refineries?
Insulation in refineries helps industrial plants reduce energy costs, making chemical processing more efficient. Insulation also protects staff from workplace risks including burns and noise pollution. Because of this, insulation for refineries may also reduce the liability of refinery owners.
How do you prevent corrosion under insulation (CUI)?
Alkaline acidic corrosion, stress-corrosion, and galvanic corrosion are always a risk in refinery settings, but there are prevention tactics at your disposal. The main way to prevent this corrosion is to keep liquid from intruding into or under insulation. To help prevent CUI:
Use insulation sealant, coating cement, silicone caulking or other additional insulation accessories.
What types of insulation are fireproof?
Fiberglass insulation is non-combustible, making it fireproof. This insulation requires no additional treatment or chemicals to resist flames, making it a great choice for thermal insulation in situations where there is a risk of fire.
Additionally, mineral insulation can be used. This type of insulation has a Delta-Therm design making it flame and explosion proof, as well as gas tight.
What areas are prone to corrosion under insulation (CUI)?
Some of the most common situations of CUI occur on:
To prevent CUI, make sure your equipment is properly insulated and protected from water and other chemicals.
How does refinery insulation help the environment?
By insulating equipment, pipe and steam lines, duct, and storage tanks, refinery managers and plant owners can help the environment. Insulation reduces the amount of energy required to heat equipment and chemicals, as well as the energy required to maintain the necessary temperature. This results in lower energy consumption. A lower energy consumption means lower carbon emissions.
