Aerogel Material Apply in Petrochemical Industry

Mar 14,2022

Recently, the global coal and oil prices have risen significantly, so it has become imperative to improve energy and resource utilization in the rapid development of society. Petrochemical industry as a major energy consumer, in order to achieve the purpose of energy saving and emission reduction, the performance of various thermal pipelines and equipment insulation materials put forward higher requirements.

Traditional insulation materials in Petrochemical Industry have such weakness,

  • High thermal conductivity and limited energy-saving effect of traditional inorganic porous insulation materials.
  • Organic foam materials are easy to burn and release certain toxic substances, causing serious pollution to the environment.
  • Outdoor heat pipes are subjected to wind and sun, rain and snow erosion, external impact and other erosion all year round, and are prone to settlement and damage, resulting in safety hazards.
  • Pipeline vibration is easy to make the insulation layer and coating insulation structure cracks, resulting in increased heat loss.

Compared to mentioned above, Sino-Aerogel Insulation Materials have such advantages, 

  • Low thermal conductivity, good insulation performance, can ensure that the heat loss of pipeline in the insulation structure does not exceed the standard heat loss, and reduce the thickness of the insulation layer.
  • High water repellence, low water absorption rate, not easy to absorb water and sink.
  • Class A fireproof performance, overcoming the shortcomings of organic materials with low ignition point.
  • Good tensile and compressive properties, stable insulation structure.
  • Easy to cut, easy to construct and save construction cost.
