Marine Exhaust Insulation
In the world of marine engines problems of excessive heat and cold have to be addressed on a professional level to ensure safety and comfort of a working environment. West Coast Insulation is an expert in identifying and controlling such critical conditions.
Preventative engine maintenance is a great way to avoid costly downtime for emergency repairs. Early problem detection allows scheduling efficient maintenance and keeping engines in a good working condition for a longer period of time.
Exhaust and Steam Line Insulation
Proper insulation helps considerably reduce heat loss from engine exhausts and steam piping systems. See Table 1 for heat loss comparison.
|Table 1: Heat Loss (Watts/sq. meter)|
|1 inch Insulation||593||757||946||1160|
|2 inch Insulation||322||407||508||624|
Table 2 shows that insulation is also a perfect solution for controlling outer surface temperatures.
|Table 2: Outer Surface Temperature Comparison|
|Engine Room at Various Temperatures (F)||600.8||699.8||800.6||899.6|
|1 inch Insulation||163.4||183.2||203||224.6|
|2 inch Insulation||129.2||140||152.6||167|
Proper insulation guarantees heat sensitive sensors and equipment protection, ambient heat load reduction, fire prevention, and maximizing effective use of exhaust catalytic purifiers/filters. It is also critical for your personnel protection, as narrow engine rooms, galleys and gangways may often cause injuries. West Coast Insulation helps you maintain safe and good working environment on board at all times. Contact West Coast Insulation for more information!
