NYC 6th Graders Visit Boiler Room to Study Thermaxx Jackets

According to Go Green Brooklyn’s Fai Walker, a class of 6th graders from Brooklyn’s MS 126 took a field trip to their school’s boiler room at the beginning of the winter season when heating costs and green house gas emissions rise. That’s exactly what these students were learning about when they observed the installation of a removable Thermaxx Jacket on their school’s boiler. Read more.

American University Insulates Boilers with Thermaxx Jackets

American University is a leader in the education sector, both in Washington, DC and worldwide. In 2011, AU was awarded the Gold rating (the highest) by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). They are also #2 on The Sierra Club’s list of “Top 10 Greenest Colleges.” So, it was an easy choice for them to partner with ThermaXX and the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) to improve energy efficiency even further on campus.

Heat Loss Surveys

Transforming your facility with insulation begins with a walk-through of the typical areas in a building that would need insulation. We like to start with the heating plant/boiler room or the room in which steam is distributed from the main plant. If you or your company has energy goals, our insulation survey organizes the data that you will need to prove your efforts. Read more.

Regulating Boiler Room Temperature

A hot boiler room creates many problems. Typically, the ceiling of a boiler room is the bottom of the floor directly above and because heat rises the ceiling area is hot, extremely hot. Many times, we see temperatures exceeding 115°F! The floor above the boiler room radiates heat into the occupied space causing an unanticipated load on the cooling system. The space is so uncomfortable that windows are opened in the winter time wasting more heat. Read more.

Water Damaged Insulation from Flooding

There were many reports of record rainfall in the United States in 2018. Several states had “One-in-1,000-Year” amounts. Hurricane Florence dropped more than 30 inches of rain as it made its way through the Carolinas in mid-September at least 20 inches of that rain fell over an area the size of New Jersey. In northern Wisconsin/Northern Michigan up to 15 inches of rain inundated parts of the state causing roads to wash away and several rivers reached record crests. There are many more states that suffered like Virginia, Maryland, Colorado, Texas, which all reporting record rainfall totals during summer 2018.

Insulating Ammonia Refrigeration Systems

Ammonia is a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen, or NH₃.  Because of Ammonia’s vaporization properties, it is frequently used as a refrigerant. NH3 boils at −33.34 °C (−28.012 °F) at a pressure of one atmosphere, Ammonia was commonly used before Freons (chlorofluorocarbons) became popular. Read more.

Preventing the Frozen Pipe Nightmare

Summer is nearly over, now is the time to prevent pipe line freeze-ups! Frozen piping doesn’t only happen with water lines, there are many other substances and chemicals that are piped within a facility. Some pipes can cause shutdowns of production lines if the line freezes and breaks, creating hazardous conditions and in general wreak havoc! Read more.
