Strong, safe and durable refrigeration

The key challenge in refrigeration is condensation on refrigeration systems and cold water pipes. The correct application of insulation in freezing systems leads to significant reductions in energy consumption and it prevents condensation and corrosion of pipes.

Corrosion due to condensation

Poor or inadequate insulation leads to condensation. This is mainly due to the (air) humidity and temperature differences between the interior and exterior. This moisture leads to damp insulation and corrosion of pipes and components of refrigeration systems. This quickly leads to a loss of performance and higher energy consumption. This has a negative impact on your cost of ownership and the environment. Higher energy consumption also leads to higher CO2 emissions.

Integrated vapour barrier

When insulating refrigeration systems, it is very important to choose an insulation material with a strong vapour barrier to protect the pipes, components and systems against condensation. Additional coating is unnecessary if the insulation material has an integrated vapour barrier. Corrosion, mould, fungi, deposits and ice cannot form, which allows the refrigeration system to continue to function properly.

High mechanical strength

Ideally, the insulation material used should have high mechanical strength. This gives valuable systems extra protection against damage. The way our insulation materials are installed, with prefabricated pipe elements and easily deformable sheets, allows even hard-to-reach elements or parts of the refrigeration system to be insulated.

It goes without saying that the insulation must be sustainably produced and Cradle-to-Cradle certified where specified. The materials must not contain any harmful substances and must meet the strictest fire safety standards.

Our productlines for refrigeration

Thermaflex closed cell PE-foam insulation is one of the best solutions, due to the wide temperature range and excellent long-term insulation properties. Thanks to the high µ-value, the insulation is highly impermeable to water vapour, which prevents condensation and corrosion. We offer products that are suitable for use in LEED and BREEAM projects.
