Heat is the transport of energy due to a temperature difference between different amounts of matter. Heat can leave the system through conduction, convection, and radiation. With respect to heat transfer, when the amount of heat entering a system and leaving the system is the same the temperature will be at a steady state. Insulation lowers the heat transfer rate by adding a material to the system with a low conductivity (K Factor) and thus increasing steady state temperature and minimizing heat loss.
ThermoHelp Corporation offers a full range of custom designed removable and hard insulation. Our customers have realized the benefits from insulating their plant equipment with industrial insulation. Many of the benefits from using our industrial insulation are listed below.
Insulated plant equipment leads to hotter steam, in hot applications, and colder chill water, in cold applications, while at the same time lowering fuel consumption of the plant.
