For the completed insulation system to be most effective, with the least compromise to the installation process, all early stage construction work must be complete, including installation of insulation and cladding supports and the equipment designed so that all projections are long enough to allow the full insulation thickness without compromise to the cladding and moisture protection.
It is extremely important for the effectiveness and efficiency of an insulation system, that regular inspections are carried out during installation and then when in operation at intervals appropriate to the type of system and the surrounding environment. It is essential that any defects highlighted be promptly rectified in order that the insulation system is kept effectively maintained so that the properties continue to be achieved.
Piping Insulation is required for the purposes of conservation of heat, maintenance of stabilized process temperatures during atmospheric temperature changes, condensation prevention, burn prevention of personnel or limiting noise levels according to the classification nominated.
Properly maintained insulation systems represent an excellent investment – save money, protect the environment and people that work on site !
