MORE ABOUT THERMAL INSULATION
What Thermal Insulation is?
Thermal insulation is a material or system that has the property of resisting the transfer of heat or sound.
The 3 common insulation material types that are used in the oil and gas world are fibrous, granular, and cellular.
Mineral wool, calcium silicate, perlite, and foamed glass are the most popular names of insulation materials, these materials can have various physical forms, thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties.
What does insulation do?
Insulation keeps hot things hot and cold things cool and plays a significant role in conserving energy in gas, oil, petrochemical, and refinery process plants.
The mechanical systems (i.e. piping, vessels, tanks, exchangers) of a refinery and process plant often operate at temperatures higher or lower than the surrounding atmosphere, and in order to achieve the desired outcome from these mechanical systems during the manufacturing and/or transportation stages, their designer often recommends to insulate them with the insulation material to the desired thickness and properties.
The required thickness of insulation for any specific application depends on the characteristics of insulating material as well as the purpose of piping or equipment.
Benefits of insulation
A medium-sized oil refinery contains 465 miles of insulated piping and 1.8 million square feet of insulated equipment. Insulation systems, when implemented correctly at a facility, can give in return several benefits;
“Save more energy” which will increase the overall profit of a facility owner.
"Reduce CUI possibilities” which will remove any chance of catastrophic failure or unexpected shutdown of a facility.
“Reduction of carbon emissions” which has a positive contribution to the climate and the environment.
“Allow mechanical systems to work normally” which will improve the operation of a plant and allow the facility to avoid excessive downtime.
