Project Description

Pipe Insulation Flir Thermal Imaging


South Africa Paper Mill Steam Pipe to Safe Touch Temperature

Surface Temperature Lowered by -158.4F (-88C) for Personnel Safety


Needed a durable insulation for steam pipes running at 280.4F (132C) for personnel safety.


When it comes to choosing the best insulation for your facility, the proof is always in the performance. That’s one of the reasons that we always tell people to try it for themselves if they’re feeling unsure, because we know that our thermal insulation coatings speak for themselves.

You can do energy saving calculations and estimates, but when push comes to shove, energy and facility managers just want to know the insulation is going to lower surfaces for safe touch applications and reduce their energy costs.

So, you’ll definitely want to check out the latest field application shared with us from our South African based Distributor, Syna-Africa. The Flir video speaks volumes about the performance you’ll see from our powerful and patented thermal insulation coatings.
