Storage tanks and vessels in industry are as variable in size, shape and media temperature as the processes they support. However, they all have one thing in common - the need for effective insulation that meets all of the requirements of the process in terms of maintaining stability, preserving heat and cold, and satisfying all safety requirements, such as protecting personnel from hot or cold surfaces.
Design specifications for storage tanks holding cryogenic fluid such as liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquid oxygen or nitrogen for chemical or combustion processes, are not only highly demanding in terms of construction, but also in terms of the insulation systems used. With the tank volume expanding and contracting depending on the level of liquid inside, the insulation must off er high levels of both compressibility and resilience.
To meet this requirement, ISOVER has developed the unique CRYOLENE solution for the insulation of cryogenic tank walls and roofs.
CRYOLENE products are highly resilient mineral wool rolls designed to retain their fiber elasticity over time at temperatures ranging from -170°C to +120°C.
Different solutions have been developed for tank shells and suspended deck insulation. The product‘s extended length means that CRYOLENE solutions are easy and fast to install, with reduced thermal bridging.
Different facings, such as reinforced glass tissue or reinforced aluminium foil, give CRYOLENE products high tensile strength.
The properties and performance of CRYOLENE have been extensively tested by external laboratories, and the products are well-proven through decades of successful use worldwide in chemical and LNG applications.
