MultiService Industrial installs, upgrades, and repairs insulation for 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 excellent for improved quality control 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 just three of many examples.
These components are almost always insulated when first installed, but over time that pipe insulation material ages, becomes damaged, and thereby less effective. Energy efficiency goes down, and process variability worsens.
Poor insulation can also lead to condensation in pipes and tanks. That causes corrosion and can even dilute process chemicals or ingredients. Repair costs will rise, and your product quality and brand reputation can suffer.
Some processes need heat kept out. Cryogenic systems like nitrogen storage and handling are two obvious examples. But excessive heat can also cause problems elsewhere. 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 when it comes to insulation products. You will find several options available for your commercial or 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 primarily 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: Also known as mineral wool, this insulation option consists of high-density mineral wool. It is often used to insulate industrial 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. You can also spray it into spaces. Its loose shape makes it useful when insulating oddly shaped areas or those that don’t fit traditional insulation well.
Specialty Industrial Insulation Options
You can also choose specialty industrial insulation options that offer unique advantages for your space. These include:
