• Reduces heat losses
  • Guarantees protection against contact by minimising the surface temperature
  • Reduces cooling of the stored substance, so it remains fluid and does not set
  • Prevents the vessel from freezing (with additional tracers)
  • Prevents heating of the stored substance (for example, through solar radiation)

Insulation systems for vessels

An insulation system for a vessel generally consists of the following components:

  • Insulation
  • Support construction and a spacer
  • Water vapour retarder with cold insulation systems
  • Cladding

The actual operating temperature (above or below ambient) is essential for the design of the insulation work.
