Thermal Insulation of Tanks , Reservoirs and Containers

Primary task of thermal insulation of storage vessels is to protect them from heating. This issue is encountered when using storage vessels with oil products (crude oil, fuel oil, petrol, kerosene and motor oil). Boiling temperature of oil products is +40°С, when this point is exceeded, gradual evaporation starts. In summer time, losses can reach 30-40% of the total tank capacity, especially in torrid zones where temperature of metal surfaces can be over 80°С. Application of extra-fine thermal insulation Bronya for tanks and storage vessels insulation helps to reduce outside surface temperature and therefore product losses caused by evaporation. Liquid consistency allows for insulation of most complex, hard-to-reach and difficult for assembly places. High speed of application by airless spraying guns makes it possible to insulate storage vessels of various configurations without downtimes. Service life is over 15 years.

Another task of tanks and vessels thermal insulation is to reduce heat losses. In industry and power-engineering, there is a need to insulate accumulator tanks and deaerators filled with hot water. This task is complicated by high volumes and complex configuration of equipment, which is very often used at high temperatures. Application of extra-fine thermal insulation Bronya helps to minimize heat loss in accordance with SNiP 41-03- 2003

“Thermal Insulation of Equipment and Pipelines”, creating safe and comfort working conditions for operating personnel.

Another task of containers insulation is elimination of condensate. This can also be solved by using extra-fine thermal insulation Bronya.
