ProRox SL 930 for tank walls
Storage tanks are located outdoors, so it is important to select a material with a low thermal conductivity and excellent water repellent properties. ProRox SL 930 is mainly used to insulate tank walls. Applying a less water repellent, non pressure-resistant insulation like ProRox wired mats is not generally recommended.
ProRox SL 580 for tank roofs
A common assumption is that the still air above the hot fluid acts as insulation of the tank roof. Insulating a tank is not easy. Corrosion of the tank roof, especially, can easily occur if the insulation is not properly installed and maintained. Therefore, many companies tend not to insulate the tank roof. This assumption is, however, not entirely correct. Due to the difference in temperature between the hot fluid and the non-insulated tank roof there is fairly strong convection, which results into considerable heat losses. Tank roof insulation is feasible if the proper insulation material and mounting and fixing methods are applied. If foot traffic can occur, a pressure-resistant slab such as ProRox SL 580 is applied for the insulation of the tank roof.
ROCKWOOL Hydrocarbon Slab for fire protection
Substantially more aggressive and intense than cellulosic fire, hydrocarbon fires are typified by burning oil, fuels, chemicals, plastics etc (i.e. hydrocarbons). Standard thermal insulation systems will not withstand the intense fire loads. ROCKWOOL Hydrocarbon Slab has been developed to provide protection against the fierce heat conditions of hydrocarbon fires.
