Aspen Aerogel’s Cryogel® Z is an exceptional insulation for cryogenic and sub-ambient applications in the oil and gas processing industry and other industrial appliances. Cryogel® Z flexible blankets feature unique silica aerogel with a factory-applied vapour barrier. It has the lowest k-value of any widely used cryogenic insulation material, reducing thickness by 50% to 80% compared to other available cryogenic insulations.
Liquification Processes for
Piping, Equipment and Systems such as
|Thickness*||0.2in (5mm)||0.4in (10mm)|
|Roll Size||Length: Approx. 1250ft2 |
|Length: Approx. 700ft2 |
|Max. Use Temp.||125°C (257°F)|
Extremely low thermal conductivity (k-value) promotes five times better thermal performance compared to other insulation products for improved efficiency and energy savings.
Cryogel® Z hydrophobic nature and additional vapour barrier prevents Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI), minimizing the requirement for equipment inspection and maintenance.
Equal thermal resistance with minimal thickness is ideal in a space-constrained environment.
Factory-laminated vapour retarder provides moisture protection, prevents damage from condensation and enhances process control to any insulation system operating at cryogenic temperatures.
Readily available in blanket forms that is easily cut and shaped to fit all equipment and pipings.
Material volume savings, minimal site storage, and simplified logistics.
Offers protections against cold splash, pool fire, and jet fire
Landfill disposable, shot-free, with no respirable fiber content.
