Mechanical insulation for instrument lines

Meeting a growing demand for flexible solutions

Technical insulation for instrument lines Application - Heating & Plumbing

Master small diameter process lines

Insulated instrument lines are a crucial part of the industrial pipeline network and are needed to ensure the safe transfer of energy and other substances across the industrial plant. Creating fully insulated pipe infrastructure can, however, become a complex task as diameters are often smaller than in conventional process lines. At Armacell, we specialize in flexible insulation materials that can easily fit all diameters and angles, ensuring a convenient and effective insulation solution for instrument lines of any size.

Flexible materials for easy application

Industrial applications present unique environments. As space is limited and pipes may not be accessible from all angles, insulation solutions need to be adaptable and easy to install. The flexible properties of elastomeric foam and innovative aerogel technology ensure efficient fittings for pipe elbow and t-pieces. By using preformed tubes, installers benefit from practical and easily applied solutions, reducing installation time and costs.

Effective condensation control

Industrial environments are characterized by extreme temperatures that range from -196 °C (-321 °F) up to +650 ºC (+1200 ºF). In these conditions, ensuring effective condensation control is key to ensuring personal safety and protecting surrounding equipment. Closed-cell foam applications balance thermal conductivity with space constraints and water vapor resistance, offering reliable protection against condensation. This enhances safety by reducing the risk of accidental burns from hot pipes and also protects the integrity of the system. The hydrophobic properties of ArmaGel® allow equipment to stay drier for longer by repelling liquid water.

Energy efficiency in smaller surface applications

Instrument lines typically have a smaller surface area compared to larger process pipelines. As a result, energy losses can be smaller but still significant. Our insulation products are designed to deliver high efficiency, ensuring that even with smaller surface areas, energy losses are minimised. By effectively insulating instrument lines, specifiers can contribute to overall resource savings and meet energy efficiency requirements.

Insulation is essential to the operational reliability of mechanical equipment. To avoid high maintenance, repair, and consequential costs, the technical performance and reliability of the installation must always be the deciding factor when selecting equipment insulation. Our comprehensive range of high-performing system solutions and products ensures long-term reliable results. Armacell materials allow for spot repairs, ensuring that if properly installed sections are damaged, they can be restored to their original efficiency. This extends the life of the insulation and reduces the need for costly full-scale replacements, significantly lowering maintenance and repair expenses over the lifetime of the insulation.
