pic3Pyrogel® XT is the most effective high-temperature insulation material in the industrial market, typically 2-5 times thinner than competing products. It is effective, durable and more productive to install, its water resistance offers a level of protection against corrosion under insulation (CUI). It is also available in a fire-protection grade (Pyrogel xtf) that is specially formulated to provide exceptional performance against the UL 1709 standard.

Service Temperature Range -40°F (-40°C) to 1200°F (650°C)

Thermal Performance – it is one of the most efficient industrial insulations in the world. Its required thicknesses are 50 – 80% less than other insulation materials.pic1

Moisture Resistance – Moisture is a problem in insulation at temperatures up to 200°C. It can form within the insulation and cause corrosion under insulation (CUI). Pyrogel XT is hydrophobic (resistant to liquid water) through the entire matrix of the material (not just the surface) and provides excellent resistance to moisture. Other insulations tend to absorb moisture over time, potentially coroding the substrate. Pyrogel XT also meets all specifications for stress crack corrosion of stainless steel.

Logistics – From procurement through installation, Pyrogel XT simplifies logistpic2ics because of its decreased volume requirements. These advantages include freight savings, storage space, simplified inventory, and the fact that it doesnt break in transit.

Installation – It is quickly and easily installed by wrapping it onto piping and equipment. In contrast, rigid insulation materials are installed piece by piece in sections, which is very labour intensive. Pyrogel XT is also applied in longer lengths at a faster rate than other insulation materials, which shortens the project schedule.

 

 

Pyrogel XF – Advantages:

  • Superior Thermal Performance – Up to five times better thermal performance than competing insulation products
  • Reduced Thickness and Profile – Equal thermal resistance at a fraction of the thickness
  • Less Time and Labour to Install – Easily cut and conformed to complex shapes, tight curvatures, and spaces with restricted access
  • Physically Robust – Soft and flexible but with excellent springback, it recovers its thermal performance even after compression events as high as 100 psi
  • Shipping and Warehouse Savings – Reduced material volume, high packing density, and low scrap rates can reduce logistics costs by a factor of five or more compared to rigid, pre-formed insulations.
  • Simplified Inventory – Unlike rigid Pre-forms such as pipe cover or board, the same Pyrogel XTF blanket can be knitted to fit any shape or design.
  • Hydrophobic Yet Breathable – It repels liquid water but allows vapour to pass through, helping to prevent corosion under insulation.
  • Environmentally Safe – Landfill disposable, shot-free, with no resirable fiber content.
