Thermal Insulation

Tem­per­at­ure un­der con­trol.

We have the know-how, ex­per­i­ence and flex­ib­il­ity to take on com­plex, large-scale pro­jects that need to be com­pleted within strict time­frames. By em­ploy­ing LEAN principles, we en­sure that everything is completed at the right time and at the right place. This al­lows us to be ex­tremely flex­ible when it comes to react­ing to challenges quickly.

That spirit of in­nov­a­tion con­tin­ues to drive us today. We de­velop and pro­duce a range of pro­pri­et­ary products and systems to en­sure that our in­su­la­tion solutions make the most of our tech­nical skills, spe­cial­ised know­ledge and understanding of every as­pect of how insulation works. From re­finer­ies and power plants to food pro­cessing, LNG facilities and the chem­ical in­dustry, we have the ex­pert­ise to help you achieve even the most am­bi­tious goals and make even the biggest and most com­plex projects reality.

Thermal in­su­la­tion simply makes sense. It’s about keep­ing hot things hot and cold things cold, conserving en­ergy in the process – and in times of in­creased environmental pres­sures and en­ergy costs, thermal in­su­la­tion is more important than ever.

Our scope of work:

We carry out ther­mo­dy­namic calculations and di­men­sion­ing with our own pro­grammes as well as ded­ic­ated finite ele­ment methodologies. Our services include:

  • Static and dynamic load calculations
  • Dimensioning of insulation systems considering ecological and economic factors
  • Development of high-temperature and cryogenic insulation concepts
  • Planning and executing functional tests for complex insulation systems in our dedicated laboratories
  • Designing insulation systems in 3D CAD programs
  • Qualifying materials and systems
