Flexible Aerogel Insulation for Cryogenic and Sub-Ambient Applications

Cryogel® Z is a top choice in cryogenic insulation because it offers protection against cold splash, jet fire, as well as acoustic attenuation in an ultrathin and lightweight package. Unlike traditional cryogenic insulation, Cryogel Z aerogel insulation is easy to install and can be used throughout a facility due to its flexible blanket format. Available in two thicknesses, Cryogel Z incorporates an integral vapor barrier with zero water vapor permeance to ensure maximum asset protection.

Most of the largest petrochemical facilities in the world entrust Cryogel Z insulation to protect their assets and ensure smooth operations. Cryogel Z has also been specified in nearly 50 major LNG liquefaction and regasification projects.

Cryogel Z Benefits

  • Streamline Logistics

    A single roll of cryogenic insulation can be used on vessels and pipes of various sizes which can significantly reduce the costs of material handling and inventory management.

  • Boost Labor Productivity

    Cryogel Z installs 30% faster than rigid insulations. This increased coverage per man-hour can lead to significant savings in labor resources.

  • Increase Energy Savings

    Cryogel Z has the lowest available thermal conductivity among industrial insulation, which can equal up to 50% less heat gain and boil off. This also reduces the risk of ice balls and iced lines.

  • Improve Operational Stability

    Cryogel Z does not require the use of contraction joints, which saves time, money, and eliminates a potential point of insulation failure.

  • Reduce Material Waste

    Cryogel Z’s flexible format means zero breakage during transport and minimal waste. It also reduces sensitivity to damage during prefabrication and modular installs.

  • Cut Construction Costs

    Cryogel Z is lightweight and ultrathin, allowing for a possible reduction in rack density and footprint during new construction. Smaller pipe racks and less structural weight may reduce steel and associated costs for beams, columns, and footings.

  • Simplify Maintenance

    Cryogel Z blankets are removable and reusable, allowing for easy inspections without the added expense of replacing the material.
