Removable Insulation Covers for Pipe Reducers
Reduce your facility’s energy bill by insulating your reducers with Thermaxx Jackets.
About Pipe Reducers
Pipe reducers are a component which joins two pipes of different diameters, allowing a medium to flow from a wider pipe to a narrower pipe. Pipe reducers may also be known as reducer couplings or simply as reducers and should not be confused with pressure reducers, which physically adjust pressure. Pipe reducers are used in a variety of applications from single family residential plumbing fittings to large steam heating systems where main steam lines change size.
Insulating Pipe Reducers
Reducers used in many industrial applications and in the heating systems of large facilities often must accommodate pipes of large diameters. Large, conductive, metal pipe reducers can have a very large overall surface area from which significant amounts of heat can escape. Large reducers, such as the reducer pictured above, often have irregular shaping and/or large nuts and bolts that makes the application of traditional insulation either extremely time consuming or outright unrealistic. In addition, reducers that are not attached by weld or solder may be removed on occasion in order to inspect pipes; this makes stay-in-place insulation even less desirable.
