LNG Liquefaction & Regasification
Cryogel® Z—Proven in LNG Service
The processes for liquefaction and gasification of liquefied natural gas (LNG) represent the most challenging services demanded of industrial thermal insulation. Any shortcomings in the insulation performance are revealed immediately. Excess condensation and ice formation are visible to the eye while excessive boil off gas rates impact economic performance. Addressing issues arising from underperforming insulation can be a full time job.
For nearly 10 years, Cryogel Z has been selected to address some of the most challenging LNG applications around the world. Cryogel Z handles the toughest assignments in LNG: bellows, pumps, vertical piping and equipment, mechanical clashes, passive fire protection, acoustic insulation, live installs...the list goes on and on. Find out why being thin, flexible, and resistant to thermal shock makes Cryogel the go-to insulation for dozens of LNG terminals around the world.
Value in New Construction and Maintenance
Cryogel Z redefines cryogenic insulation, powered by an ultra-efficient aerogel core, Cryogel Z remains flexible at deep cryogenic temperature, avoiding the need to include complex, costly contraction joints. Installation in LNG service is therefore simplified and accelerated.
The ultra-efficient flexible format supports thinner designs and is ideal for space or weight constrained locations. The integral vapor barrier and advanced thermal performance all but eliminate condensation build up.
Cryogel Z uniquely offers class-leading protections for LNG protection: combined thermal, acoustic, cold splash and passive fire protection. All four protections in a single product format minimize logistics costs and maximize labor efficiency.
