Refrigeration Pipe Insulation
Refrigeration Pipe Insulation is the insulation layer developed in the 1950s.The advent of such insulation materials marks a historic shift from natural materials such as corks to synthetic materials.The popularity of Refrigeration Pipe Insulation grow rapidly may be because it does not require any vapor barrier to block moisture.Because this material is also very versatile (including sheets, rolls and tubes), it is often used as insulation, especially for refrigeration or ventilation system. Refrigeration Pipe Insulation is also a very easy to install material, and a small scratch does not affect the overall application.
Elastomeric Insulation Application
The closed-cell Elastomeric Insulation has brought about great changes in insulation industry.The most notable feature is its anti-condensation function.Its porous structure-millions of tiny bubbles that keep the liquid from infiltrate through not only reduces many of the problems associated with moisture.(e.g., mold), but also to ensure a stable and durable insulation performance.Liquid has quite high thermal conductivity, so a damp insulation provides little thermal insulating performance.The closed cell elastomeric insulation has a very strong vapor barrier performance, so no additional vapor barrier is needed to prevent condensation on the surface of the pipe.
The pipe insulation is a kind of elastic insulation.Specially designed for hot and cold piping, air duct or equipment.There are 1/4",3/8", 1/2 ", 3/4 ", 1 ", 1-1/4 ", 1-1/2 ", "2", 2-1/2 "and 3" thick insulation.The most commonly used tube is 8 inches in diameter.
Duct insulation is often used in air ducts, including ventilation ducts, air processor ducts, and air handling systems.
The main application of the pipe insulation is to reduce the the temperature difference between the pipe and ambient temperature to control the condensation on the surface of cold-water plumbing, chilled water, and refrigeration lines.Insulated tubes can also effectively reduce heat flow or heat loss in hot water plumbing, liquid heating and dual temperature piping systems.Pipe insulation is also used for large OD pipes, chillers, vessels and tanks.The recommended using temperature for pipe insulation is -297°F to +257°F.Rubber foam pipe insulation can be used above and below ground, indoors and outdoors. If the sun exposure time is not long, external jacket is not needed to protect the insulation.
Formation of foam rubber Duct Insulation:
The foam rubber Duct Insulation is one of the most common types of insulation used in HVAC systems today. The foam rubber Duct Insulation is made by passing gas into the melted polyester, forming the even closed-celled pore structure.This kind of pore is very even and exquisite. Each pore is a mini thermal preservation, moisture-proof and soundproof insulation, so the whole product also has the effect of moisture-proof, heat preservation and soundproof performance.
The main application of foam rubber Duct Insulation is as a moisture-proof insulation.foam rubber Duct Insulation is installed on the surface of the pipe, which can effectively reduce the temperature difference between the pipe and the surrounding environment, thus preventing the generation of condensation.At the same time, the foam rubber Duct Insulation is not corrosive. The metal pipes without insulation layer will be full of rust for long time using, while the pipes installed with foam rubber Duct Insulation is as bright as they are first produced.
Closed Cell Foam Rubber can be made into the shape of a tube or sheets. For small diameter pipe, the closed Cell Foam Rubber pipe insulation can be made into the shape of tube. The tube can be installed onto the pipe directly;Large diameter pipe can be installed with closed Cell Foam Rubber sheet and special glue. The outer surface of the pipe and the inner surface of the Closed Cell Foam Rubber should all be pasted with glue. When the glue is dry( touching without super sticky feel, you can start to install.
