Low temperature insulation is an extensive area within the field of technical insulation comprising various kinds of industrial refrigeration and freezing plants, piping, equipment, and air duct systems as well as dimensioning and erection of cold stores and cold rooms. This also includes cold insulation onboard ships where special requirements must be met.
Insulation materials we use and scope of application could be:
- Sandwich panels – are often used for cold stores, freezer units, and cold storage warehouses. The panels have a core of polyurethane foam or mineral wool. The cladding consists of steel sheet with relevant profiling, surface and colour.
- Polyurethane Foam with sheet metal cladding – is used for in-situ insulation of cold pipes and vessels. The 2-component foam is injected into the cavity between the cold part and the steel cladding which has been custom made for the unit in question.
- Armaflex – is used for cold insulation and insulation against condensation on pipes and vessels. Armaflex is a highly flexible elastomeric material with a closed cell structure.
- Hygrowick – for insulation against condensation on cold pipes. Hygrowick uses a wick system to lead condensed water away from the pipe and to the surface of the insulation material where it evaporates.
