Enhancing efficiency for more sustainable DHC networks

District heating systems rely on insulated underground thermal networks to distribute heat and cooling efficiently and safely across multiple buildings. Fuelled by renewable sources, like solar power or biomass, they offer effective energy-efficient solutions to reduce fossil fuel dependency. Pre-insulated pipes serve as the technical cornerstone for DHC networks, as well as specialised applications like biogas-fuelled cogeneration and industrial process pipelines. With the Global market for pre-insulated flexible pipes projected to double by 2030, we refined our portfolio to meet the distinct demands of various end markets, from residential to industrial. Whether that’s non-flexible pipes that connect energy sources to substations or flexible pipes linking substations to commercial or residential buildings, at Armacell, we ensure specifiers find their fit-for-purpose insulation solutions to minimise remote energy loss.

Lower your total cost of ownership

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.
