Boilers, which are the heart of the heat generating process, are a key piece of equipment in factories, hospitals, universities, institutions, and many medium and large buildings. Unfortunately, they can be a challenge to insulate with fiberglass or mineral wool for a number of reasons, including that the size of the boiler doesnt make it easy to wrap and cover, fibrous insulations cause corrosion issues, and its not always possible to take the boiler offline for work to be done.
Conductive and Radiant Heat Loss
Heat emanates from boilers during operation, not only causing energy costs to go up, but also creating hot conditions in the room where they are located. Boilers are also notorious for being hot areas for employee burn risk.
Our CEO recently visited a factory where hot boiler surfaces were an employee safety issue.
Their boiler was at approximately 275F and they needed a safe touch solution right away. We sprayed on several coats of our EPX-H20 coating, and by the end of that same day, they were able to safely touch the boiler with no issues. The coating cures quickly, in approximately 1-2 hours, when applied to a hot surface, it is dry to touch. It was sprayed on while the boiler was in-service, so there is no downtime.
