MultiService Industrial installs, upgrades, and repairs insulation on tanks, pipes, vessels, and other process equipment.
If you have damaged or ineffective insulation, it could be costing you money right now. Our industrial insulation services minimize costs and reduce process variability which is great for quality and profits.
The Importance of Insulation for Industrial Buildings
Heat is everywhere in factories and process plants. Steam pipes, mixing vessels, and curing ovens are three examples. These are almost always insulated when first installed, but over time that insulation ages, becoming damaged and less effective. Energy consumption goes up and process variability worsens with it.
Poor insulation can lead to condensation in pipes and tanks. That causes corrosion and perhaps dilutes process chemicals or ingredients. Repair costs will rise, and what will happen to your product quality and your reputation?
Some processes need heat kept out. Cryogenic systems like nitrogen storage and handling are obvious examples. But heat can cause problems elsewhere, too. Consider food processing or brewing. Wherever there’s a chemical reaction excess or insufficient heat, quality may be affected.
Types of Insulation for Industrial Buildings
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to insulation. You will find that there are several options available for your industrial facility based on your space, budget, and preferences. Here are a few common choices:
- Fiberglass Blanket: This is a go-to option, also known as batt insulation or roll insulation. It consists of layers of fiberglass placed between two pieces of paper or cardboard. It’s usually used between wall and floor joists and beams.
- Fiberglass Board: This is similar to the fiberglass blanket, but is composed of a fiberglass board. It’s frequently used to insulate HVAC ductwork.
- Rock Wool: This insulation option, also known as mineral wool, is made of high-density mineral wool and is primarily used to insulate pipes and water heater tanks.
- Spray Foam: Spray foam insulation is sprayed into spaces using special pressurized equipment. It’s a semi-liquid foam that becomes a dense sealant when dry.
- Loose-Fill Insulation: This insulation option is composed of cellulose or fiberglass pellets. It can also be sprayed into spaces. Its loose shape makes it useful when insulating oddly shaped areas or those that don’t fit traditional insulation well.
