Have you ever had trouble insulating the elbows and valves of pipes? Most insulation is made for straight pipe sections, but when it comes to the bends, turns, and odd shaped pieces, trying to wrap them in a traditional insulation can be difficult and time consuming and costly.

We’ve seen in many facilities where they leave them un-insulated, wasting energy because they’re too difficult to wrap. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Each uninsulated valve could be costing you over $250 per year in wasted energy, according to the US Department of Energy. If you had 100 valves in your steam system, that is a loss of $25,000 per year!

Would you like an insulation that conforms instantly to any size or shape of equipment with an easy spray on application? We have it. You can just spray and walk away, knowing every part of your heat system is insulated and saving energy.

That’s exactly how easy it is with our Syneffex™ Heat Shield™ thermal insulation coatings. They’re an easy to use spray-on insulation coating that can be sprayed on while equipment is in service and easily cover all the bends and configurations of any steam system.

Spray-On Insulation Coating for Insulating Elbows, Valves, and More!

Pinhole leaks are another area of wasted energy and are often caused by traditional wrap type insulations. This phenomenon is known as CUI (corrosion under insulation). 

When a pinhole leak happens beneath traditional fiberglass or mineral wool with cladding, it can take days or weeks or more before it is noticed. Being hidden under this older insulation system means that the leak can remain undetected as the steam saturates the surrounding insulation, growing larger until finally discovered, then the whole insulation system has to be taken off and replaced while you try to find and repair it. 

With Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O or Heat Shield™ High Heat the insulation doubles as an anticorrosive, so the coatings prevent the corrosion in the first place. 

How much are those pinhole corrosion leaks costing you? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a leak that is just 1/4” could cost you $1,630 per month. (see chart below)
