Pipe Insulation Services
Pipe insulation is used to encase piping mechanisms that cause noises or vibrations, in order to create a barrier between the piping and external area. PU is well known for its applications in wire and cable jacketing, hose and tube, in adhesive and textile coating applications, and as an impact modifier of other polymers. The main utilities for PU insulation service is that it controls surface temperature for personnel protection, stabilizes process temperatures, prevents condensation and subsequent corrosion on cold surfaces, increases fire protection and controls noise and vibrations to a great extent. Since some pipes are located either outside or in unheated areas where the ambient temperature may occasionally drop below the melting point of water, any moisture within the pipework may potentially freeze. When water freezes it expands and this expansion can cause failure of a pipe system to anybody in a number of ways. Due to this reason it's recommended to insulate pipework and prevent the risk of freezing, and native supply regulations may require pipe insulation be applied to pipework to reduce the risk of pipe freezing.
For a given length, a smaller-bore pipe holds a smaller volume of water than a larger-bore pipe, and thus water in a smaller-bore pipe will freeze more easily. Modulating trace heating cable, or ensuring a uniform flow of water through the pipe, and the location of pipework also influences the selection of insulation thickness. In some conditions, heating pipework within a well-insulated building won't require insulation, because the heat that's lost may be considered useful for heating the building, intrinsically lost heat would be effectively trapped by the structural insulation anyway. Conversely, such pipework could also be insulated to prevent these situations. Acoustic insulation can prevent this by acting to damp the pipe wall and performing an acoustic decoupling function wherever the pipe passes through a hard and fast wall or floor and wherever the pipe is mechanically fixed. Pipework also can radiate mechanical bang. In such circumstances, the breakout of noise from the pipe wall is often achieved by acoustic insulation incorporating a high-density barrier.
Factors influencing the relative performance of various pipe insulation on any given application can be influenced by many factors such as thermal conductivity surface emissivity water-vapour resistance insulation thickness density other factors, like the level of moisture content and the opening of joints, which can influence the general performance of pipe insulation.
Pipe insulation materials are available a large variety of forms, but most materials fall into one among the following categories: Flexible elastomeric foams these are flexible, closed-cell, rubber foams supported NBR or EPDM rubber. Such high vapour resistance, combined with the high surface emissivity of rubber, allows flexible elastomeric foams to stop surface condensation formation with comparatively small thicknesses. Flexible elastomeric foams also are used on heating and hot-water systems. Rigid foam Pipe insulation made up of rigid Phenolic, PIR, or PUR foam insulation is common in some countries. Polyethylene may be a flexible plastic foamed insulation that is widely used to prevent freezing of domestic water supply pipes and to reduce heat loss from domestic heating pipes.
