Piping plays a central role in many industrial processes in chemical or petrochemical installations such as power plants, as it connects core components such as appliances, columns, vessels

Importance of Insulation

To guarantee a correct process cycle, the condition of the media within the pipes must remain within the set limitations (e.g. temperature, viscosity, pressure, etc.). Piping insulation has an important function. It must ensure that heat losses are effectively reduced and that the installation continues to operate economically and functionally on a permanent basis. This is the only way to guarantee the maximum efficiency of the process cycle throughout the design service life without losses as a result of faults.

The functions of correct thermal insulation for piping include:

  • Reduction of heat losses
  • Cost savings
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions
  • Frost protection
  • Process control: ensuring the stability of the process temperature
  • Noise reduction
  • Condensation prevention
  • (Personal) Protection against high temperatures

Generally, the best insulation is achieved using ROCKWOOL  ProRox pipe Section (ProRox PS). The sections are quick and easy to install. Their excellent fit and high compression resistant means pipe sections can be applied in a single layer without any additional spacers. They also have a lower insulation thickness
