The All-In-One Removable/Reusable Insulation Solution for Combatting Condensation, Corrosion, and Energy Waste on Chilled Water or Dual Temperature Systems

MECHANIC FALLS, Maine -- Auburn Manufacturing, Inc. (AMI), a leading developer, manufacturer, and marketer of textile products for extreme temperature industrial applications, has introduced a new removable/reusable (R/R) insulation kit system for components on chilled water or dual temperature systems where vapor condensation control is a primary consideration. The new Ever GreenŽ Chill-In vapor sealed insulation blanket system is the quick and easy solution for combatting condensation, corrosion and energy waste. It prevents surface condensation when used on a 42 degree chilled water line up to a relative humidity range of 85-90%.

"What we observed in the institutional/commercial market was that while piping in chilled water systems and dual temperature systems is generally well insulated, the components such as valves and fittings are not, and the result is a significant energy loss as well as water condensation and corrosion of the components and adjacent pipes," said Kathie Leonard, President and CEO of AMI. "The reason why components are left bare is most often due to their convoluted shapes and the need for access during periodic maintenance and inspection. Chill-In blanket systems are designed to be removable and reusable after installation, making them ideal for reinsulation or retrofit jobs."

Rated to Min/Max 32 degrees F/250 degrees F, Chill-In R/R kits contain everything that's needed for on-site fabrication and installation. Included are: a quilted 4 ft. x 8 ft. modularized, flexible, insulated blanket with a zero-perm vapor retarder; a 75 ft. roll of 4 in. wide zero-perm pressure sensitive tape; a 3 fluid oz. tube of silicone caulk; and a utility knife. "Using the kit allows the contractor to easily fabricate and install the removable/reusable blankets on the job site using standardized materials," said Leonard. "It simplifies removing and re-applying the blankets."

The fabrication and installation process is quick and easy. "You simply measure the component to be insulated to determine the length and width of the insulation blanket," explained Leonard, "Then cut the blanket to size, tape all exposed blanket edges, wrap the insulation around the pipe component, tape to adjacent insulation on pipe or equipment and apply silicone caulk to any blanket penetrations to create a vapor-tight seal."

Ice white in color, the 2 in. thick low-density Chill-In blanket meets 25/50 per ASTM E84. It consists of a fiberglass core sandwiched between woven fabric and laminated to a very low permeance multi-layer fabric on both sides. The quilted design aids in the flexibility, measuring and installation around convoluted surfaces. The fiberglass insulation meets ASTM C553, Type V.
