Industrial pipe insulation
ISOVER mineral wool industrial pipe insulation solutions are the perfect choice to address all of these requirements - providing thermal, sound insulation and fire protection within a single product. They are ideal for a full range of applications and temperature ranges, from cryogenic to hot pipes in power plants.
High performance industrial pipe insulation is essential for a number of reasons :
To ensure thermal stability of the transported medium for process security
To provide thermal insulation to improve energy efficiency, reduce heat loss and cut CO2 emissions
For safety reasons - to protect personnel from hot surfaces
To prevent corrosion through reduced humidity and condensation
To reduce noise caused by turbulence in high speed media
To provide passive fire protection for improved plant safety.
ISOVER TECH products not only provide high levels of thermal performance for economic and environmental puroposes, they are designed to operate at a range of temperatures up to 700°C (MST), provide excellent acoustics to help controlling plant noise, and improve safety for plant personnel. They are light and easy to handle, and are particularly beneficial where access is difficult and space limited.
For even greater time saving, choose preformed products like ISOVER pipe sections, which are not only designed to simply snap-on for fast and efficient installation, but are easier and more comfortable to handle and offer up 25% better thermal performance.
For more complicated constructions, such as large diameter pipes and vessels, complex components and for environments with high levels of mechanical stress, flexible products like such as ISOVER Wired Mats and ISOVER technical rolls offer an ideal solution.
What kind of industrial pipe insulation is most effective?
The ideal choice for all your requirements, ISOVER TECH industrial insulation solutions provide effective thermal, sound and fire protection in one product for a wide range of temperatures and pipe sizes. Simply choose the TECH pipe sections - glass wool, stone wool or ULTIMATE™ - best adapted to your needs:
All our industrial pipe insulation materials are designed to combine numerous advantages for planners, designers, installers, contractors, specifiers and end-users:
Lightweight & compressibility
Bespoke solutions for special applications
Thermal pipe insulation for high temperatures
We’ve developed a special high-performing mineral wool range, ULTIMATE™ U Tech, which offers higher performance and efficiency due to outstanding lambda values at temperatures up to 700°C.
ULTIMATE™ U Tech is efficient, light and compressible providing higher levels of pipe insulation at lower thicknesses, versus traditional stone wool.
- up to 35% better thermal efficiency
- up to 30% thinner
- up to 50% lighter
Sound Insulation Solution
Acoustic insulation in pipes typically consists of a sound-absorbing and/or resilient material as mineral wool (“porous layer”) on the piping and an impermeable outer cover (“cladding”).
An optional intermediate mass layer in direct contact with the cladding can also be added to improve the acoustic performance.
Insulation significantly reduces acoustic vibrations between the pipe and the cladding while absorbing noise (according to ISO 15665).
The most suitable formats for pipe insulation are pipe sections or wired mats, depending on the diameter of the pipe and the thickness of the insulation. When choosing your acoustic insulation, you may also consider the thermal requirements.
