HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning)

The main objective of HVAC installations is to provide comfort (thermal, acoustic and ventilation comfort) for occupants of commercial dwellings, working spaces and residential  buildings. Comfort, in this sense comprises of temperature control, satisfactory indoor air quality and adequate noise levels. This can be particularly important in the design of medium to large commercial and office buildings where these parameters have to be carefully controlled. Our range of HVAC products will work to provide the most efficient insulation solutions for pipework and ductwork, ensuring the building environment is thermally protected, has minimal noise disruption from equipment noise and is fire safe.

 

Why insulate pipe and ductwork?

There are several reasons for applying insulation to pipework and ductwork, whether it is to save energy through reducing heat loss, temperature control, acoustics or personnel protection. 

Hot surfaces

• Fuel conservation - To reduce heat loss from pipework and ductwork. All hot pipework will normally need insulating. Operating temperatures are typically 60°C for domestic and non-domestic applications. Ductwork typically requires insulation at operating temperatures above 0°C.
• Temperature control - To prevent temperatures falling below a certain pre-determined level and in turn conserving energy.
• Personnel protection - To prevent injuries to operators such as burns during the normal course of their duties, in locations where they could come into contact with surfaces exceeding 50°C.
 

Cold surfaces

• Reduce the rate of heat gain.
• Prevent surface condensation - If pipework and ductwork are not adequately insulated then condensation can form on the surface, this could lead to equipment damage such as corrosion.
Against frost, Insulation can help delay or avoid freezing* if designed and installed correctly.
*With additional trace heating.
