  • R-value is determined using the guarded hot plate apparatus. This test is performed in a closed environment at 70F. This doesn’t take any real world situations into account.Basically this means that once an insulation is installed in the real world, it’s r-value is automatically decreased.
  • The following to be read during the second bulletIncreased energy consumptionIncreased production cost - lower throughput Decreased life of equipmentDecreased work efficiencyPersonnel Protection concerns
  • Conventional insulation only uses anti-conduction to block heat transfer
  • Insulating coatings use all blocking methods to inhibit heat transfer
  • Insulation reduces energy needs, therefore reducing CO2 emissionsConventional insulation is not recommended for tank roofs, where vapor loss (hydrocarbon emissions) occurs. Insulating coatings can be applied to roofs to reduce vapor lossReduction in energy usage is directly correlated to a reduction in CO2 emissionsFor example, a 35% reduction in energy usage equals a 35% reduction in CO2 emissionsMascoat is currently developing lab tests to practically determine energy savings based on a number of factors

    1. 1. 2 Main Reasons Insulation is Used • Protect personnel • Reduce energy cost – ROI • Added benefits – Control condensation – Improve process control – Improve facility lifecycle costs – Improve work environment
    2. 2. 3 Why Insulation is Often Overlooked • Insulation can create added problems – Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is one of the biggest maintenance issues in facilities • Poor communication within facility • Unaware of cost saving potential
    3. 3. 4 Insulation Found in Most Plant Operations – Removable/Reusable Blankets – Calcium Silicate – Perlite – Fiberglass – Closed Cell Foam – Urethane Foam – Ceramic Fiber – Cellular Glass – Insulating Coatings
    4. 4. 5 Conventional Insulation – The Good & Bad Pros • Good thermal capability • Works at high temperatures (> 500 F) • Provides good absorptive type energy retention
    5. 5. 6 Conventional Insulation – The Good & Bad Cons • Most absorb moisture, promoting CUI and mold growth • Requires substantial fabrication (2, 3 & 4 part systems) • Shorter lifespan • Consistent maintenance issues • Safety aspects • Diminished performance over time
    6. 6. 7 NOTE! Facts About Moisture & Insulation • Moisture severely limits performance of conventional insulation • Units running under 316 F (157 C) promote CUI • Conventional insulation systems may require a separate moisture barrier, which degrades over time • Between 10% and 30% of insulation in facilities is missing or damaged* * National Insulation Association
    7. 7. 8 TODAY, NEW TECHNOLOGY SOLVES AGE OLD PROBLEMS
    8. 8. 9 Insulating Coatings • Long lifespan with little maintenance needed • Rapid application with minimal man hours • No chance of CUI occurring • Reflects heat back into source, keeping products and processes more manageable • May be applied without shutting down operations
    9. 9. 10 Insulating Coatings LIMITATIONS • Maximum continuing operating temp of 375 F

    17. 17. 18 SPECIFICS ABOUT INSULATING COATINGS
    18. 18. 19 Industrial Coatings  Mascoat  Industrial-DTI – Personnel protection, energy retention, process stability  Industrial-AC – Anti-condensation applications  Industrial-HR – Radiant heat gain applications  Sound Control-dB – Vibration and noise reduction  WeatherBloc – Insulation on buildings and commercial structures  Envirotrol  CC100 – Personal protection, energy retention, process stability  CCX – Similar to CC100, but with maximum operating tempurature of 450 F
    19. 19. 20 How the Coatings Work Combination of irregular & sphere shaped particles that encapsulate air Conducted heat is transferred across entire surface and throughout the particles Heat Flux Transmissions (Emissivity + Absorptance + Transmittance) - Power of the heat (amperage – voltage) is reduced compared to other insulators. Conductive The coating system blocks all aspects of heat transmission, not just the conductive aspect found in most conventional insulators. Reflective Mascoat uses all of the blocking agents to reflect heat. Cross section of Heat and Coating
    20. 20. 21 How Does Heat Transfer? • Conduction – Anti-conduction • Convection – Emissivity – Absorption • Radiation – Transmittance – Reflectivity Convection Conduction Radiation Always trying to reach equilibrium
    21. 21. 22 Conventional Insulation Blocking Methods Anti-conduction = Insulation Value Conventional InsulationConvection Conduction Radiation
    22. 22. 23 Insulation Coating Blocking Methods Convection Conduction Radiation Anti-conduction + Absorptance + Emissivity + Transmittance + Reflection = Total Insulation Value Successfully blocking heat transfer
    23. 23. 24 HOW CAN THERMAL INSULATING COATINGS BENEFIT PAPER MILL OPERATIONS?
    24. 24. 25 Personnel Protection • Thermal insulating coatings can reduce recordable injuries: – Burns – Slip and fall accidents – Hearing loss – Unacceptable working conditions (heat) • This also reduces a facility’s: – Paid time-off for injured employees – Medical costs for injuries on the job – Fines levied by OSHA – Meetings about injuries that have occurred
    25. 25. 26 Personnel Protection Through a NACE accredited study authored by a independent coatings expert, we have documentation that has shown that thermal insulating coating meets and exceeds the ASTM C1055 & ISO 13732-1 standards, i.e. the “5 second/140˚F rule”
    26. 26. 27 Personnel Protection
    27. 27. 28 Personnel Protection
    28. 28. 29 New World Benefits • Insulation reduces a facility’s CO2 and other polluting emissions output. • When a facility takes steps towards reducing their energy needs, an added advantage is that the facility also lowers the CO2 emissions.
    29. 29. 30 Reducing CO2 Emissions • A 3rd party test revealed a 35% increase in energy savings when 145 mils (3.25 mm) of Mascoat Industrial-DTI was applied to a test unit compared to an uncoated unit. • This resulted in a 35% reduction in CO2 emissions.

    30. 30. 31 Paper Mills • Application – No down time due to shut down – Smaller crews and less time to complete the application – Applicable to tight spaces and on moving equipment. – No risk of overspray, as dry fall is within 3–5 feet
    31. 31. 32 Paper Mills • Maintenance – Prevents CUI from occurring and removes equipment from CUI programming – Constant inspectability of substrate – Excellent weather resistance – Easily repaired if mechanical damage takes place
    32. 32. 33 Paper Mills • Return on Investment – Conserves energy – Reduces future maintenance costs – Personnel protection – reduces recordable injuries due to burns (ISO 13732-1) – Coating lasts many years longer than conventional insulation – Helps stabilize internal conditions, reducing energy needs
    33. 33. 34 WHERE ARE THERMAL INSULATING COATINGS USED?
    34. 34. 35 Paper Mills DRYER CANS • Problems: Personnel protection from heat surrounding unit, low productivity because of lost energy • Mascoat Benefits: Ease of maintenance, personnel protection, elimination of corrosion, reduction of energy use • Dry Film Thickness: 140 mils (3.5mm) • Results: Unit produced 4 tons more of paper per day after application, working environment much more comfortable
    35. 35. 36 Paper Mills WEAK LIQUOR TANK • Problems: Personnel protection and energy retention • Mascoat Benefits: Ease of maintenance, personnel protection, elimination of corrosion, reduction of energy use • Dry Film Thickness: 60-80 mils (1.5-2.0 mm) • Results: 20-25% reduction in energy use, no recordable injuries due to burns
