Bridging the gap(s) with flexible insulation

Several EN and ISO standards offer detailed guidance on how to assess just how much additional energy is lost when flanges and other fittings are left uninsulated.

High emissivity surface to reduce insulation thickness

Keeping the surface of an insulation material above the dew-point temperature is key to stopping condensation. Insulation thickness and thermal conductivity play major roles but, when it comes to controlling the surface temperature of insulation, no material property is more important than the surface emissivity.

Mind the gap(s) to unleash additional saving potential

Insulation of pipes and ducts is often an afterthought, seen as something that needs to be done but with little consideration given to the details of which materials or how they should be installed.

Insulation made of flexible elastomeric foams (FEF) or polyethylene foams (PEF) can help to reduce the health risks associated with heating and plumbing pipework.
