Boilers are at the heart of nearly every major heat process. Weve seen a lot of them and are proud to be a leader in using 21st century technology to increase boiler efficiency and safety for both manufacturers and large building owners around the world.
While older boilers tend to need insulation more for efficiency, our coatings are also often used on the end caps of newer boilers, as well as surrounding steam pipes for an efficient system that exemplifies our motto of Sustainability Simplified.
Whether youre manufacturing pet food, paper products, or anything else, or running a university or hospital, your boiler is what provides the steam heat to power your production processes and keep the occupants of your building warm in winter. That means that ensuring your boiler is as energy efficient as possible will save you a significant amount of money. Insulation can also help ensure safety compliance by reducing burn injuries.
Every day, our Heat Shield EPX-H2O is being sprayed onto boilers and their accompanying steam lines all around the globe. People use it because it is the best, easiest, and most long-lasting insulation for boilers and associated steam components.
Our patented insulation coatings helps customers achieve three main objectives:
– Lower energy costs
– Reduce surface to a safe touch level for safety
– Reduce the amount of heat the boiler radiates into the surrounding area
Why Insulation Is So Important
and Often the Best Efficiency Choice?
According to Natural Resources Canada, an audit of a boiler system may reveal that the insulation of the boiler and its piping system is inadequate, in need of repair, or missing altogether.
Example: If only 10 flanges are not insulated on a 10-cm (4-in. diameter) pipe carrying steam at 860 kPa (125 psig), the annual heat loss is equivalent to 2450 m3 of natural gas.
Example: A 3-m (10-ft.) length of uninsulated 10-cm (4-in.) steam pipe wastes more than twice as much money in steam costs per year than the cost of insulating it.
