In factories, steam piping is an integral part of the structure of production workshops, smelting furnaces, processing plants, etc. Steam pipes or condensate pipelines want to operate well. and increase the life expectancy, limit the corrosive situation, need to have good insulation design.
Steam pipe insulation will contribute to the whole production system to be operated more smoothly, save more energy consumption and limit the loss of thermal energy into the environment during the flow of steam.
Tube mineral wool is the most standard type of material commonly used for pipe insulation. The design is pre-shaped in a tube-shaped mold, so it is very convenient for insulation, besides that the mineral cotton is also designed to be available vertically so it is easy in the construction process and saves installation time. than.
Characteristics of insulation materials:
– Material name: Mineral wool or insulating glass wool
– Density: about 100kg / m3
– Pipe walls have a thickness of about 30 to 150mm.
– Pipes with a diameter of about 22 – over 370.
– Length of about 1m.
– There are two types of surface coated silver and non-silver type.
Thanks to the characteristics of soft, flexible, elastic and high-strength cotton fibers, it is applied to insulate steam pipes, thermal oil pipelines, technological pipelines, steam pipes, boiler pipes. garment, textile, chemical, food processing, pharmaceutical factories, …
The point in using this material is that mineral wool should not be used for cold insulation because when it comes to moisture the cotton fibers will limit their ability to function and lose their effect.
