Industrial Applications
Removable insulation covers provide many benefits to industrial applications and enables operations to continue comfortably while minimizing downtime due to equipment repair or malfunction. Firwin Corporation manufactures reliable custom insulation covers for a variety of industries and offers a selection of insulation solutions for many industrial applications, including process industries and unique applications such as superheaters and heat recovery systems.

Insulation Solutions for Industrial Applications

Removable insulation covers must be specially designed for its intended equipment to maximize effectiveness. Depending on the application’s unique needs, there are a variety of materials, layers, and thicknesses to customize the insulating product. When properly implemented, Removable Industrial insulation covers can provide sufficient temperature control, weather resistance, water resistance, and optimal durability.

Because of the benefits they offer, many types of industrial equipment rely on insulation solutions including:

  • Heat Recovery Systems
  • Extrusion Machines
  • Piping Systems
  • Valves and Actuators
  • Instrument Panels

Industrial Challenges Met Using Firwin Insulation

Industrial piping and other systems require adequate insulation to prevent a range of potential issues. Some of the challenges that Firwin’s insulation products can solve include:

Temperature Control

High-quality insulation solutions reduce equipment’s surface temperature and keep it at a consistently safe level, reducing the risk of burns and subsequent injuries to workers. Additionally, this protects other nearby equipment and systems from damage due to high-temperature levels.

Excessive Noise and Vibration

Industrial settings can be very loud which can cause safety issues. Many applications use industrial insulation to reduce noise and vibrations resulting from certain processes. This is achieved through the formation of a vibration and sound barrier between the equipment and the surrounding space. Insulation’s noise-reducing capabilities create a safer working environment by facilitating clear communication between personnel.

Regulations and Safety Standards

Insulation helps facilities meet certain industry safety standards and regulations put in place by governing bodies like OSHA. Engines used in factories and warehouses can produce exhaust at temperatures exceeding 800°F, posing an extreme risk to workers. Using proper insulation that controls process temperatures makes it easier to comply with these and other standards by keeping temperatures at operational levels.

Fire is another possible hazard that many facilities face. Flame-retardant insulation minimizes the risk of fires by maintaining safe temperature levels.

Loss of Performance and Shortened Service Life

Good insulation provides improved protection for equipment, keeping it safe from extreme temperatures and other factors that cause damage and wear over time. As a result, equipment lasts longer and provides a longer service life.

Removable for Easy Access and Maintenance

Removable insulation covers can be removed as needed to access any part of a system that requires maintenance or replacements. This reduces costly downtime by enabling quick maintenance procedures.

Energy Efficiency

Proper insulation also lowers the cost of heating and cooling, leading to energy savings. Comfortable working environments enable equipment and personnel to perform more efficiently, which can further reduce operating costs by avoiding downtime due to injury or equipment repair.

Reduce Corrosion Risk

Certain processes cause condensation to develop on cold surfaces and put equipment at risk of corrosion. Using vapor-resistant insulation effectively prevents condensation from building up on piping, chillers, ducts, or roof drains. Insulation of the right thickness level further prevents condensation by keeping the outer surface of equipment at a temperature above the ambient air’s dew point temperature.
