Industrial tank insulation systems reduce the amount of heat lost or gained, keeping stored liquids at a constant temperature while minimizing energy usage.
Typical applications include:
The nVent RAYCHEM TracLoc system is a vertical seam insulation panel system with pre-fabricated panels combining closed cell insulation material and metal jacketing.
They are custom made to fit the height of the tank and have mating seams that are mechanically jointed (folded). These mating seams secure the panels to the tank, reduce moisture ingress, have superior bend resistance, expand and contract easily.
Compared to conventional systems, TracLoc offers a higher rigidity, reduced moisture ingress and minimized under-insulation corrosion. It is maintenance-free and available in various materials and configurations to conform to industry standards or aesthetics.
Installing conventional insulation systems can be time-consuming and costly. The TracLoc system consists of a continuous 360° interlocking seam, eliminating the need for external bands and screws. Total installed cost (TIC) is significantly reduced because the system does not require scaffolding during installation. This drastically shortens the project schedule and increases overall site safety.
With pre-fabricated insulation panels and modular installation techniques, there is no need for scaffolding. This helps to reduce the time necessary to install drastically while improving the safety of personnel.
The unique TracLoc interlock panel system provides a robust homogenous jacket that reduces moisture ingress, has superior wind resistance, and has inherent contraction/expansion properties
By using closed cell insulation materials, the insulation properties remain constant over time, minimizing energy losses and improving the efficiency of the system.
