Purpose of insulation

Insulation systems on chimneys have the following purposes:

  • Reduce heat losses in the flue gas, thereby preventing sub-dew point (acid or water dew point) conditions in the flue gas on the interior surfaces of the flue gas duct. This also minimises the corrosion risk. This also applies to areas with structural thermal bridges, such as support constructions, reinforcements etc.
  • Reduce the heat losses in flue gas channels with downstream heat recovery
  • Guarantee protection against contact
  • Adherence to technical specifications with regard to noise
