Powerful Protection for Power Generation
From conventional power generation such as gas or coal to renewables like solar, power generation facilities worldwide rely on optimized performance to be as efficient as possible. Controlling heat losses, protecting assets, and ensuring environmental and emission compliance all contribute to the overall efficiency of the facility—ultimately to deliver low-cost, reliable energy to consumers.
The use of efficient thermal insulation throughout the plant is essential for maintaining proper controls. Conventional thermal insulation can struggle with the demands of power generation—high temperatures, space constraints, and corrosion. When conventional insulation fails, piping and equipment can become exposed to the environment, leaving valuable processes unprotected. This can lead to plant emissions out of tolerance, corrosion, inadequate protection in extreme climatic events, and increased maintenance.
Pyrogel® offers superior protection in complex environments
Finding the right thermal insulation is not always easy. To get the most out of your insulation you need a long-lasting, reliable, durable, and thermally efficient insulation. Pyrogel can be used for temperatures up to 1200°F (650°C), and its extremely low thermal conductivity offers superior performance while saving space. Pyrogel's thin, flexible design allows for reduced thickness making it ideal for use in space-constrained environments such as those of complex power generation facilities. Pyrogel's hydrophobic yet vapor-permeable design minimizes the risk of corrosion under insulation (CUI). Protecting assets against corrosion by choosing the right insulation can have significant payback in terms of both cost and safety.
