How does ThermaCote® insulates, reducecondensation, CUI and moisture?
The risk of condensation and CUI increases as the temperature difference between the interior and exterior of the pipes and valves grows.
Pipes and valves insulation falls off as result of condensation and corrosion under insulation (CUI). Rust is produced by condensation and moisture inside insulating materials. Condensation occurs when the amount of moisture in the air is higher than the volume of air can absorb.
This is usually caused by the cooling of warm, humid air, so excess moisture condenses on the wall of the pipes and valves. Condensation starts when you have more than 10°C difference between inside and outside of the duct
If you want to protect your existing pipes and valves or considering new ones, you should seriously consider applyingThermaCote® on them.
ThermaCote® incorporates advanced ceramic technology to prevent CUI and transfer of heat and cold, saving energy and maintenance costs in pipes and valves.
ThermaCote® is the perfect solution for insulating valves and pipes in an industrial line. For hot applications ThermaCote® can be applied while the unit is operational and at temperatures to 149C/300F and with special training up to 210C/410F. Since ThermaCote® incorporates corrosion inhibitors, no primer is necessary in most cases. By reduction of the surface temperature, the difference between inside and outside of the pipes and valves is close, ThermaCote eliminates the condensation, reduces humidity and prevents the rust (CUI) on them.
Too it reduces maintenance costs and eliminates radiant heat from hot pipes and valves. In addition, ThermaCote maintains the temperature inside by controlling heat losses. Furthermore, the elimination of thick insulation material reduces the size of space needed for installation. ThermaCote protects personnel from contact burns
