ThermaXX Removable Jackets have been using Laser Etched Asset tags for 3 years. Within the last 18 months the information about our jackets have been live on the internet with a quick scan of the ThermaXX or Off the Shelf QR Code reader App… More
In 2009, one of our service divisions started manufacturing removable insulation jackets for a customer in CT, and ThermaXX was born. We quickly centralized our manufacturing operations in West Haven, CT. With a sales team consisting of myself and longtime employee and friend William Jones, we started to build a company and began working outside of CT. Read more about our story…More
Everyday insulating materials are not sufficient for hot applications. Traditional materials used in insulating blankets, covers and jackets (silicone/fiberglass) start to falter when approaching 600°F. Cover materials start failing, threads start degrading, and insulation starts burning… More
The Brooklyn Museum is an art museum located in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. At 560,000 square feet, the museum is New York City’s third largest in physical size and holds an art collection with roughly 1.5 million works. Brooklyn museum is part of a citywide push to become more energy efficient by 2025. The museum has partnered up with National Grid taking advantage of their energy efficiency program & offsetting the cost of the sustainable upgrades.
Spring is just around the corner and that means we can stop worrying about pipes, valves and other components freezing until next fall! That is a statement that is heard all too often at Thermaxx. Customers breathe a sigh of relief and quickly forget about the winter. What about next winter? Remember the cost in time and money? … More
Thermaxx Jackets manufactures jackets for virtually all types of industrial applications. Many of our customers request waterproof and/or fireproof jackets/blankets for their facilities. When choosing insulation material for fireproof applications it is important to consider application type, surrounding environment and ASTM standards when choosing materials… More
While insulation is not a new technology, it is being sought out more and more as a popular energy conservation measure. Whether it’s tied into a larger scope of work with additional measures, or being done independently, mechanical insulation projects render appealing paybacks that clients are excited to implement…More
We’re all familiar with the tried and true method of generating energy, pioneered by our apelike ancestors: fire. Fast forward a few hundred years and fire’s still a top choice, but along the way people realized that lighting fires everywhere that energy is needed can create a host of problems. Maintaining a single fire in a controlled, isolated environment is a lot easier – but you can’t send fire down a tube to where it’s needed! That’s where steam comes into play.. More
As LNG becomes a more frequently used energy resource, the need for properly maintained cryogenic systems is becoming an essential part of the LNG manufacturing and distribution process. Cryogenic mechanical systems consume large quantities of energy to cool LNG to extremely low temperatures. With LNG demand at an all-time high, conserving energy by properly insulating the system becomes crucial.
Unfortunately, all cryogenic valves require servicing and are traditionally left uninsulated, losing both energy and LNG as a result. In the past, these losses were accepted as part of the process, but with focus shifting to sustainability, these types of oversights are causing facility managers to search for a solution. An LNG plant operator recently found himself in this exact situation. It occurred to him that removable, cryogenic, insulation jackets could offer exactly what he needed.
