Sustainability Accelerated: Insulate with No Downtime!

One of the factors that can delay facility energy efficiency improvements is downtime. If equipment has to be turned off and production stopped in order to insulate, that’s a big and costly inconvenience. This usually means that improvements have to wait for a short window once a year when the factory is having a maintenance shutdown, and hope that it can be fit into that window.

While the cost of downtime can vary greatly between industries, according to MachineMetrics, downtime can cost a company as much as $260,000 an hour! So it’s no surprise that organizations end up holding off on improvements due to that downtime cost.

Your company shouldn’t have to wait all year to better insulate their steam pipes, tanks, boilers, and other heat process equipment. While traditional insulation requires shut down for installation, Syneffex™ Heat Shield™ thermal insulation coatings don’t.  They were formulated to optimize ease of application and with plant operations in mind.

Our motto is Sustainability Accelerated™ and that means you don’t have to wait for the energy savings and other benefits of our coatings… you can have the benefits right away!

Our Heat Shield™ industrial insulation coatings can be sprayed on to equipment that is as hot as 400F (204C). It’s a quick and easy application that can be done in a day and is easily accomplished by in-house personnel or industrial painting contractors. An added bonus is that the coats dry faster on a hot surface, so you can complete the full application faster.

Spray-On Hot Instructions:

  1. Ensure the surface is clean and dry prior to application.
  2. Use spray passes of 10 mils each for Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O.
  3. Make sure the coat is dry to touch and non-tacky before the next coat is sprayed.
  4. Dry time between coats on a hot surface is just 10-20 minutes.
  5. Complete the specified application; typically about 4 to 8 coats for EPX-H2O.
  6. Our coatings are water-based so cleanup is easy, just rinse the equipment out with water.

How Easy is EPX-H2O to Spray?

Very easy! Watch this short application video on a boiler that was running while being insulated.

EPX-H2O coating is applied with a texture sprayer, which can be bought for less than $100.

How Much Can You Save & What’s the Payback?

Industrial customers typically report energy savings in the 15% to 35% range with Heat Shield™ EPX-H2O (see some case studies here). Payback reported is generally between 6 to 18 months. And after that, you have ongoing ROI for at least 10 years or more.
