According to insulation.org, “Steam valves should be insulated. Insulating them conserves energy and also provides personnel safety protection. Since valves require periodic maintenance, the form of insulation used on valves should be easily removable and replaceable. Many manufacturers provide custom-made insulation jackets that fit their valves. These are usually very snug fitting without voids and are very efficient.”
We returned to The Interchurch Center in February of 2020 to perform an annual insulation inspection. We interviewed Johnny D, Chief Engineer, re-tagged all existing jackets with new SLATE tags from The Slate Pages and performed a facility wide insulation inspection which resulted in a new phase of work. The Interchurch Center in NYC is comprised of over 60 non profit organizations. The building has saved over 400,000 gas therms since our first insulation project in 2012. We look forward to our continued efforts to assist The Interchurch Center with their energy and safety related goals.

A few years back, a very good customer asked Thermaxx and our partners at MIDCO insulation to perform an insulation audit in multiple manholes on a line running through a busy urban area. The customer expressed some apprehension and frustration because previous attempts at insulating these lines were unsuccessful, as the insulation quickly degraded. Read more.
Recently we were asked to perform a survey for a large property management firm in New York City. This had not been the first time we provided this company with insulation surveys and we hoped that we would be awarded the project. Even though we were able to show the client the benefits of using traditional fiberglass on straight runs of pipe and custom jackets on serviceable components, we did not “win” the job. So I asked my contact to address the objection to our quote and recommended solution. I was told that this is an issue with the onsite engineers. “They don’t believe jackets are worth it!”
Did you know that when we perform our insulation survey, we take every type of insulation needed into consideration? Thermaxx provides solutions for all your insulation needs. If you are looking for a way to make a big impact quickly in your facility, consider the pipe insulation condition in your mechanical rooms and heating plant. Often we are asked, should this be replaced? YES!
Industrial pipes, or process piping, is typically used to transport water, steam, and other gases & liquids of varying temperatures. The term “process piping” generally refers to the system of pipes that transport process fluids (e.g., air, steam, water, industrial gases, fuels, chemicals) around an industrial facility to be converted into a usable product. Industrial pipes also include plumbing systems that carry liquids and gases used for heating and cooling processes, or pipework that leads to plumbing fixtures or waste-water systems. These industrial pipes are generally made of steel, cast iron, copper, or specialty metals in certain highly aggressive environments. Read more.
Do you know what the Clean Buildings Act is? Are you a commercial building > 50K Gbsf? Is your building in the state of Washington? Then time is a ticking! It will be a mandatory law by 2026 to get your building HEALTHY. Let me help you with a simple: 1 – 2 – 3: Audit, manufacture, install.
As Mary Krogh was reaching out to hospital and nursing homes to assess their needs and acquire hard to find items, she heard about West Haven-based removable insulation manufacturer Thermaxx putting aside its regular business to design, cut, and sew Thermaxx Gowns for first responders, hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare professionals in need. Mary contacted Brian Bannon, President of Thermaxx, to see how her Lions Club district could help.
Thermaxx has been very active in the fight against COVID-19. Our efforts began by organizing the design, assembly, and delivery of Thermaxx Gowns to help first responders and medical professionals across CT & beyond who were unable to acquire PPE due to shortages. Now, Thermaxx is continuing the fight by donating 250 “Clean Slate Pledge” placards to businesses that are choosing to reopen in CT (approx $10,000 value)!
