ISSUE: Sinopec, the Chinese oil & gas company that is the world’s fifth largest company by revenue, needed an effective insulation that would not degrade in the marine environment and that would properly insulation and prevent corrosion of their tanks and equipment.

SOLUTION: They recently completed a successful winter study from October 2012 to March 2013 with Nansulate® High Heat coating for insulation and corrosion control.

Sinopec was looking for a better solution than the rock wool insulation they were using and one that would prevent corrosion, which was being caused by the rock wool.

Nansulate® provided them with an effective solution in a clear thin film application that also prevented corrosion. A 12-coat application of Nansulate® was used over the offshore fuel oil storage tank. The tank had to be kept between 68C and 72C. The final analysis showed that Nansulate® was effective and within 3 degrees C of the
8cm rock wool insulation, plus it solved the corrosion issue and provided a cost effective solution that would stand up to the harsh ocean environment without degrading.

Nansulate® provided Sinopec with a better solution for insulation and corrosion control of their fuel storage tanks, which lasts much longer than other insulation options, which greatly reduces the maintenance and replacement costs over time.

Erenko Textile

 

ISSUE: Erenko, a textile manufacturer for Disney, Champion, Puma, and others, wanted to reduce steam consumption to make their facility more sustainable.

SOLUTION: Nansulate® Translucent High Heat was used to insulate heat exchangers, dyeing machines, and steam system components.

“We have closely monitored a dyeing process which takes place at 60C (140F) for a 60 minute reaction time; the steam-based heat exchanger of the un-insulated machine needed 24 heat-on cycles, whereas the Nansulate machine's heat-exchanger only needed 2 heat-on cycles. This proves that by proper insulation, heat losses are minimized; it also shows that oscillation of temperature is
decreased.

With a Nansulate coated dyeing machine, we have observed that the colour of fabric was surprisingly identical to one another, whereas in un-insulated machine, there is always a small difference in color.”

ISSUE: Edward Moore Design, Inc., a Canadian Government recognized research and development laboratory, was developing a cooling and heating system to be utilized in three unique medical devices. They needed the unit to be as energy efficient as possible and also use insulation, which was acceptable for the hospital environment.

SOLUTION: Nansulate® GP was specified into the heating and cooling unit for the three new medical devices.

The first device is an air conditioned/heated massaging mattress cover, which can be used for bed-ridden patients, controlling the temperature of the matress, providing comfort and preventing bedsores.

Edward Moore, President, describes the projects further, “Nansulate has been specified into the main cooling and heating system for this design. Nansulate added to the mattress cover system was found to reduce cooling temperature at a rate of 1.8 degrees per minute, as compared to the foam insulation alone which reduced temperature at a rate of 1.1 degrees per minute. All test were performed under identical conditions cooling one gallon of fluid.

By speeding up the cooling process, substantial energy savings were achieved. In addition, Nansulate prevented sweating during the cooling process and also prevents growth of unwanted substances on the surface of the system.

The same carefully researched cooling and heating system specifying Nansulate will be incorporated into a new machine to form x-ray invisible casts with perfectly even pressure over the entire area of a broken limb. The casts can be worn while swimming or bathing and re-formed, again with perfectly even pressure, when swelling reduces. Thanks to Nansulate the time to form a perfectly even pressure cast will be approximately three minutes.

An additional portable machine specifying Nansulate in the unique heating and cooling system, is to heat and or cool with adjustable massage any area of the body for sports medicine and general physiotherapy needs. This machine will free up the doctor or technician to perform other tasks. The portability of the battery operated machine is due in large part to the energy savings realized with Nansulate insulating coatings.”
