Removable Insulation Jackets for Ball Joints
Ball Joints may be difficult to insulate for some, but Thermaxx Jackets has you covered.
About Ball Joints
The strict definition of a ball joint is: “a coupling between two rods, tubes, etc., that consists of a spherical part fitting into a spherical socket, allowing free movement within a specific conical volume.” Sometimes, ball joints are also known as ball and socket joints. For most people, the term ball joint is associated with the automobile part; however, ball joints can be found in pipes and tubing in steam and hot water systems, chemical plants, offshore drilling, solar plants and more.
Insulating Ball Joints
Pipe ball joints can vary in construction, though they are typically made of steel or other metals; therefore pipe ball joints are often highly heat conductive. One thing all ball joints have in common is that they accommodate movement, and this makes them notoriously difficult to insulate. However, an uninsulated ball joint in a high temperature system can be a point at which significant energy is lost.
