- Markets & Applications
For nearly two decades, Pyrogel has earned a reputation for solving thermal insulation's toughest challenges. It has been engineered from the ground up to protect people, processes, and assets from the traditional enemies of insulation:
The risk of corrosion under insulation (CUI) is proportional to the time the asset spends in contact with water. By keeping process assets drier for longer, Pyrogel represents the smart choice for a robust CUI defense strategy.
Pyrogel's benefits extend beyond CUI defense. Its unique combination of four key defense mechanisms also help to maintain stable process conditions sustaining unit performance and profitability. During maintenance events or turnarounds, Pyrogel can be removed and reused, saving time and reducing expenses.
Pyrogel's unique composition allows turnaround (TAR) teams to stay on schedule. Pyrogel does not absorb water, so jobs won’t be delayed by rainfall or snow. Many sites have also restarted operations before jacketing is installed.
Pyrogel's flexible format can adapt to pipes and vessels of all shapes and sizes. Complex geometry? Not a problem. Pyrogel is easy-to-install and rolls can arrive onsite within hours, perfect for last-minute, scope change.
Pyrogel can be easily removed and reused, saving not only the cost of purchasing new insulation but also other associated non-productive fees. This makes inspection and maintenance cycles faster and simpler.
Pyrogel XTF incorporates all of the CUI defense benefits of Pyrogel XTE and adds passive pool-fire and jet-fire protections to deliver class-leading CUF defense. Pyrogel XTF can deliver hydrocarbon pool-fire protection for up to 4 hours, and jet fire protection up to 2 hours. Pyrogel XTF can also be used to meet the requirements of API 521 for the sizing of pressure relief systems.
