As global demand for natural gas continues to grow, engineers face the challenge of maintaining the operation of liquid natural gas (LNG) liquefaction and regasification facilities in regions with high humidity and rainfall. Insulation failure leads to excessive condensation and noticeable ice formation causing damage to the assets. Additionally, falling ice puts personnel at risk. Poorly insulated piping can also increase boil-off gas rates, which negatively impact the facility’s economic performance. Cryogel® Z cryogenic insulation excels in these harsh conditions.
Cryogel Z aerogel insulation simplifies a facility’s cryogenic insulation system by combining thermal performance, acoustic attenuation, as well as protection against cold splash and jet fire in an easy-to-install blanket format. In addition to being a top choice for maintenance and turnaround work, Cryogel Z has been specified and used in nearly 50 major LNG liquefication and regasification projects around the world.
