High Temp Insulation
IMC supplies a wide range of high-temperature insulation and products.
IIG’s mineral wool pipe insulation is made from basalt rock and steel slag. These rigid pipe sections are strong, preformed mineral wool insulation with excellent thermal performance. Mineral wool pipe insulation is a non-combustible product with a melting point of approximately 2150° F (1177° C), which gives it excellent fire resistance properties. Mineral wool is a water repellent yet vapor permeable material that is ideal for steam and process pipe systems operating at temperatures up to 1200° F (650° C), where energy conservation, personnel protection and fire control are concerns. Mineral wool board is rigid stone wool industrial insulation board, designed for use where high temperature, fire resistance, and moisture resistance are concerns. It is lightweight, durable with good compressive resistance. It is available in different densities and dimensions to meet various application requirements.
Also manufactured by IIG, Thermo-12 Gold is a pre-formed, high temperature, abuse-resistant pipe and block insulation with exceptional structural strength, composed of hydrous calcium silicate for use on systems operating up to1200°F(650°C). It is inorganic, noncombustible, Asbestos Free and meets or exceeds the physical and thermal property requirements of ASTM C533, Type 1. Integral to Thermo-12 Gold is , a distinctive formula and process that inhibits corrosion to outside surfaces of pipe and equipment.
The perlite fitting covers from SMC are molded high temperature insulation composed of a fine grade perlite, sodium silicate binders and a new uniformly dispersed fiber reinforcing system that makes WR-1200 the strongest perlite insulation commercially produced. It is recommended for use in industrial processing and power generating facilities on process equipment and piping that operates continuously or cyclically at temperatures to 1200°. It is will not absorb water if accidentally exposed to water. Wr-1200 also has a second-line defense against corrosion. If moisture and chlorides leak through seams and joints, WR-1200’s reserve of soluble silicates which will form a protective film on the metal surface to seal-out the chlorides and moisture. The ICA M.W. 1200° pipe fitting insulator is serviceable to 1200°F and was designed to be utilized in conjunction with any high temperature straight-run insulation of equal surface temperature capabilities. ICA M.W. 1200° pipe fitting insulators have been employed successfully in mineral wool, calcium silicate, and expanded perlite systems. The ICA product is molded under extreme heat and pressure from uncured green felt which is impregnated with a thermo-setting resin. The ICA M.W. 1200° fitting insulator is composed of fibers that are intermeshed in different directions, resulting in superior strength. The ICA is remarkably durable insulator, exhibiting superior load-bearing characteristics when compared to previous applications, for fitting areas. The ICA M.W. 1200° is actually strong enough to be utilized on line, removed for inspection or maintenance purposes, and utilized once again.
We also stock Fyrewrap® and Durablanket from Unifrax. FyreWrap Elite Insulation incorporates Insulfrax® Thermal Insulation as its core material. Insulfrax is a high-temperature insulation made from calcia, magnesia, silica chemistry designed to enhance biosolubility. It provides excellent insulation in a noncombustible blanket form. The core insulation is completely encapsulated in an aluminum foil, fiberglass-reinforced scrim covering. This scrim provides additional handling strength as well as protection form tearing and moisture absorption. Fiberfrax Durablanket S insulation is a strong, lightweight, flexible needled blanket that is made from spun ceramic fibers. Available in a wide variety of thicknesses, widths and densities, Durablanket S insulation provides an array of proven solutions for a broad spectrum of application problems.
