Technical insulation of storage tanks & vessels

Providing highly efficient thermal, acoustic and passive fire protection (PFP) insulation solutions for storage tanks and vessels.

Technical insulation of storage tanks & vessels Application - Heating & Plumbing

Effectively conserving heat and cold

Storage tanks and vessels come in various sizes and shapes. And requirements on desired temperatures and handling may differ significantly depending on the stored product. Whether small or large, technical insulation of tank systems is one of the most efficient measures to protect both the quality of the goods stored on the inside and the safety of employees on the outside of the tank. Elastomeric and aerogel insulation materials enable operators to build long-lasting tank systems that maintain thermal integrity and minimise the risk of downtime due to unscheduled maintenance work.

Control condensation in humid environments

Condensation control is a critical challenge in storage tank and vessel applications as environments can be complex and, in certain geographic locations, humidity levels are a strong consideration Closed-cell solutions, such as elastomers, offer excellent moisture resistant properties and control condensation build-up on pipes, tanks, and equipment. Characterised by high elasticity in a broad temperature range, they deliver high mechanical strength and ensure that assets remain protected, maintaining their quality and preventing damage caused by condensation-related issues such as corrosion under insulation and mold growth.

Improve system and energy performance

Energy consumption is a significant concern across a wide range of processing industries, as uncontrolled heat loss/gain can account for a substantial portion of energy usage. Especially when stored outdoors, selecting materials with low thermal conductivity and high moisture resistance is key. Elastomeric foam possesses exceptional water-repellent properties and effectively protects tank systems from freezing or over-heating, ensuring reliable system performance and minimising energy losses caused by heat transfers.

Insulation is essential to the operational reliability of mechanical equipment. To avoid high maintenance, repair, and consequential costs, the technical performance and reliability of the installation must always be the deciding factor when selecting equipment insulation. Our comprehensive range of high-performing system solutions and products ensures long-term reliable results. Armacell materials allow for spot repairs, ensuring that if properly installed sections are damaged, they can be restored to their original efficiency. This extends the life of the insulation and reduces the need for costly full-scale replacements, significantly lowering maintenance and repair expenses over the lifetime of the insulation.
