Unlike traditional hard insulation, Thermaxx Jackets removable insulation allows you to easily perform inspections and maintenance of valves, pipes, and equipment.
There are many insulatable components that require regular maintenance, such as steam traps, valves, flanges, or wide steam piping. Inspection and maintenance are critical to identify and resolve issues with safety, energy waste, and equipment degradation. We all know how failure to inspect and maintain equipment and components can result in huge problems such as heavy corrosion, leaks, costly emergency repairs, production halts, OSHA violations, or accidents.
The problem with performing maintenance with hard insulation
Traditional rigid insulation often needs removed during inspection and maintenance, and this can be a time consuming process. In addition, hard insulation is frequently damaged during removal. When removed hard insulation is reapplied, it is commonly less effective. Typically, reapplying the insulation is impractical and the hard insulation needs replaced anew – resulting in additional costs. Often, reapplying or replacing hard insulation is forgone completely, leaving the pipe or equipment exposed. Due to these difficulties, hard insulation often discourages frequent inspection and routine maintenance.
Removable insulation makes maintenance easy
With Thermaxx Jackets removable insulation solutions, you can have all the benefits of hard insulation without the difficulties performing maintenance, inspections, and repairs. Our removable insulation is specifically designed to be removed and reapplied as easily as possible. Nearly all of our covers and blankets can be removed or put into place in 3 to 5 minutes. This makes it easier to identify and remedy equipment problems and inefficiencies, so you can maintain safe, cost-efficient operations.
