High Temperature Insulation For Various Applications

  1. 1. High Temperature Insulation For Various Applications
  2. 2. Your Guide to Choosing High Temperature Insulation For Various Applications If you are searching for insulation, you will quickly find that there are a variety of different types of insulation that you can choose from. There are the standard products, that can easily insulate in moderate temperature ranges, and there are high temperature materials that are designed to withstand temperatures you cannot even imagine. High temperature insulation products can be used in a variety of different applications.
  3. 3. Your Guide to Choosing High Temperature Insulation For Various Applications From automobiles and machinery to piping and appliances, it is important to understand how high temperature materials are rated and what materials are used. Here is a straightforward guide to reference when you are comparing materials:
  4. 4. Distinguishing Between Different Temperature Ratings Insulation Capabilities Up to 450 degrees Any high temperature insulation that is rated for 450 degree or less is not technically a high temperature product. These products are made of a fiberglass and silicone blend, and the material is used throughout the entire insulation sleeve or jacket.
  5. 5. Distinguishing Between Different Temperature Ratings Insulation Capabilities Up to 550 degrees If you are looking a material for applications and need a higher temperature rating, insulation rated for between 450 degrees and 550 degrees is defined as a high temperature product. Insulation with a temperature limit of 550 degrees is the least expensive option, but still offers you the high heat capabilities that you need. Most insulation with a heat limit of 550 degrees is made of fiberglass and a TEFLON composite, which will come into contact with the heated element.
  6. 6. Distinguishing Between Different Temperature Ratings Insulation Capabilities 550 degrees or More When you are shopping for insulation with even higher heat limits, you will need to decide whether to shop for a steel mesh product or a fiberglass cloth. If each product has the same high heat limit rating, you might think that the lowest priced product is the best to fit your budget. Unfortunately, fiberglass cloth and stainless steel mesh are not water resistant and can easily be ruined in an application where the insulation could get wet.
  7. 7. Other Options There are other high temperature insulation options when there is a chance of the insulation getting wet. The solution here is to choose a silica based cloth that is much more versatile in high temperature settings. If you need insulation that is rated for 1200 degrees or higher, you will need to choose a needled fiberglass product that has a mechanical bond of needles that can withstand these drastic temperatures.
  8. 8. Other Options If you choose the wrong insulation at this temperature, the insulation will deteriorate quickly as the temperatures cause the application to shake and pull apart.
  9. 9. Other Options High temperature materials come in a variety of different forms. There are standard materials like silicone, and high temperature rated materials like stainless steel and silica that can be used in several different applications. There are also many unique compounds such as Insulflex® which can be used.
  10. 10. Other Options Keep all of these facts in mind when you are compare high temperature rated products, and select a product that can produce in the right environment. If the insulation could potentially get wet, keep this in mind when you are selecting a material and purchase the appropriate product the first time.
