Rising global energy demand requires people to invest heavily in environmentally friendly supply infrastructure. Since the birth of polyurethane synthetic materials, it has been gradually used in the field of pipe insulation and its application range has become more and more extensive.

Polyurethane rigid foam insulation pipe has been developed as an excellent thermal insulation material since the birth of polyurethane synthetic material in the 1930s and its application range is becoming more and more extensive.Because of its simple construction and remarkable energy-saving and anti-corrosion effects, it is widely used in various pipelines such as heating, refrigeration, oil and gas.Especially in the central heating system, polyurethane foam insulation pipes show their talents and are the favored choice of many projects. Similarly, in a wide variety of industries, polyurethane is the first material of choice for pipes and storage tanks.

Central heating and cooling

Centralized heating and cooling systems must be extremely efficient in order to distribute hot and cold water from centralized sources to residential, commercial or industrial users. Due to the use of optimized scale factories, energy is mainly used to pump heat in the required direction. Hot water or cooling water is the standard medium used in these pipe networks and polyurethane insulation is the key to delivering energy to the desired location as efficiently as possible.

Industrial pipeline

Pipelines play a key role in chemical parks and chemical plants and are widely used to transport fluids efficiently. Insulating these pipes can reduce energy loss and save pumping costs. The petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food, beverage and mining industries are often equipped with polyurethane insulated pipes.

Petroleum and natural gas

  There are thousands of kilometers of pipelines serving the oil and gas industry on all continents. The complex network of onshore and subsea pipelines, platforms and tankers forms the foundation of the modern energy supply industry. Polyurethane insulation helps engineers optimize the efficient performance of the network, making it easier for them to maintain ideal temperature efficiency throughout the supply chain.

Low temperature transportation

  Liquefied natural gas is an extremely important energy source, and its consumption is increasing, but it must be transported under low temperature conditions. In this field, polyurethane is widely used in the insulation of pipelines and storage tanks.

Advantages of polyurethane insulation pipe:

A. The thermal conductivity base of polyurethane foam can reduce heat exchange to a certain extent by relying on a thin and light insulation layer;

B. It can work in a wide temperature range through formula adjustment;

C. It can guarantee excellent mechanical properties even if the density is low;

D. Polyurethane insulation parts can be produced in the factory or foamed on the spot;

E. Compatible with many materials, providing excellent adhesion and long-lasting dimensional stability;

F. The water vapor intrusion is small so that the pipeline maintains excellent thermal insulation performance for a long time.
