Exploring Insulation Materials: Microporous Insulation

Microporous insulation is a composite material in the form of compacted powder or fibers with an average interconnecting pore size comparable to or below the mean free path of air molecules at standard atmospheric pressure. Microporous insulation may contain opacifiers to reduce the amount of radiant heat transmitted. The resulting blend of materials and pore structure produces a thermal insulation with extremely low thermal conductivity across a broad temperature range. The Microporous core material is completely inorganic, making it non-combustible and suitable for passive fire protection applications.

The Use of Laser Scanning when Conducting Fitness-for-Service Corrosion Assessments

Laser scanning (profilometry) is a highly effective and accurate inspection method for measuring changes in geometry of pressurized vessels, piping and pipelines. The laser scanning data is used to measure the deviations from normal geometry, such as those caused by corrosion, mechanical damage and other structural distortions. The primary goal of the laser scanning analysis is to feed highly accurate geometric data of in-service vessels and components into advanced modelling and analysis software packages.

Corrosion Behavior of Superhydrophobic Surfaces: A Review

Superhydrophobic surfaces have evoked great interest in researchers for both purely academic pursuits and industrial applications. Metal corrosion is a serious problem, both economically and operationally, for engineering systems such as aircraft, automobiles, pipelines, and naval vessels. Due to the broad range of potential applications of superhydrophobic surfaces, there is a need for a deeper understanding of not only how to fabricate such surfaces using simple methods, but also how specific surface properties, such as morphology, roughness, and surface chemistry, affect surface wetting and stability. In this article, a comprehensive review is presented on the researches and developments related to…

Considerations for Thin Blanket Insulations

As the industrial industry evolves, new insulation technology has emerged to meet the changing needs of the industry. One of the latest introductions has been thin, blanket insulation. Thin blankets typically range between 5mm and 10mm thick, and can be used in high-temperature or cryogenic applications. Two popular thin blanket insulations are Johns Manville’s InsulThin™ HT, a hydrophobic, microporous, thin blanket insulation, and silica aerogel, a hydrophobic, aerogel, thin blanket insulation. While these materials may seem similar, they each have unique properties that make them useful in varying applications. With that in mind, what should you be considering when selecting…
