       Benefits of Mechanical Insulation:
  • Reduce Heat Loss, Reduce energy prices
  • Fire Protection and Protection against hot pipes
  • Prevent Condensation and pipes from freezing
  • Protection from corrosion
  • Sound Reduction and Acoustic Protection

Types of Mechanical Pipe Insulation (in stock and available for online purchases):

Fiberglass Pipe Insulation - Made from inorganic glass fibers and a foil vapor retarder ASJ jacket, this product offers excellent resistance to heat loss and gain with a thermal conductivity (.23 K at 75 degress F).  The inorganic fibers of Fiberglass pipe insulation give the product excellent fire resistance and can be applied to applications with an operating temperature up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.  Common uses include commercial building, industrial and process applications. Our main suppliers of fiberglass insulation include Knauf, Owens Corning, and Manson.
Various types of Cladding (Jacketing) are available for outdoor applications. Some common jacketing systems are Aluminum Jacketing, Stainless Steel, Venture Clad, and PVC Jacketing.

Elastomeric Rubber Pipe Insulation – Also known as Closed Cell Pipe Insulation, is thermal insulation designed for the HVAC and Refrigeration industry. Rubber foam insulation's closed-cell foam technology is highly recommended for condensation control, due to its excellent moisture vapor resistance (<0.06) and thermal conducticty (.265 K at 75 degree F). Applications include refrigerant lines, cold water plumbing, chilled water systems, and can also be used to retard heat flow on solar panels and other applications up to 220 degrees Fahrenheit. It is a very flexible product that makes it easy to apply. Available in un-slit or pre-slit, self sealing pipe insulation. Various types of protective cladding are available upon request. Our main supplier of rubber insulation products is K-Flex USA which was formerly known as Nomaco and Rubatex pipe Insulation (brand name Insul-Tube®)

Polyethylene Pipe Insulation- Commonly referred to as Thermacel Insulation or Foam Pipe Insulation, the material is self-sealing, flexible, polyolefin, thermal insulation. Therma-cel has a low thermal conductivity and low water vapor transmission rate. The product is very low density with strong thermal, physical and chemical resistant properties but is less flexible and more rigid than our Rubber Foam Insulation products and does not have strong fire resistance. Service temperature range between -330°F and 210°F (-201°C and 99°C). It can be installed in commercial, industrial and residential insulation projects. Acceptable for use with heat tracing/heat tape. Manufactured by Nomaco Insulation.

Types of Industrial Mechanical Pipe Insulation (must be fabricated, email for inquiry):

Calcium Silicate Pipe Insulation –  Used  for high temperature pipe and equipment in industrial applications such as petrochemical and power generation  because of its low thermal conductivity, durability, compressive strength and corrosion inhibiting properties. Calcium Silicate is ideal for operating temperatures up to 1200°F (649°C). The product will not burn and is used for fire protection in some applications as well.
Manufactured by IIG under the product name Thermo-12 Gold.

Cellular Glass/Foamglas –  Cellular Glass is a rigid, inorganic, fiber free material which is composed of millions of completely sealed glass cells and used in many Industrial applications. This all-glass, closed-cell structure provides a combination of physical properties ideal for piping and equipment underground and can be used at operating temperatures from -450° F to +900°F  (-268°C to +482°C) including Cryogenic pipes, tanks, and equipment. It is non corrosive and can be used on both hot and cold applications.
Manufactured by Pittsburgh Corning under the brand name Foamglas.

Mineral Wool Pipe Insulation - Mineral wool pipe insulation is made from basalt rock and slag. This combination results in a non-combustible product with a melting point of approximately 2150°F (1177°C), which gives it excellent fire resistance properties. Mineral wool is a water repellent yet vapor permeable material. Mineral Wool pipe insulation is ideal for steam and process pipe systems operating at temperatures up to 1200°F (650°C), where energy conservation and fire control are concerns. Mineral Wool Pipe Insulation provides high water-repellent characteristics, making it suitable for application in conditions where moisture can penetrate the insulation system. Manufactured by Roxul under the brand name . Techton™ 1200.
