Subsea Pipeline Insulation – Spaceloft® Subsea

Offshore Pipe-in-Pipe Flexible Insulation

Aspen Aerogel Spaceloft® Subsea is an industrial thermal insulation for pipe-in-pipe application suitable for offshore oil & gas platforms. The insulation is ideal for high temperature, high-pressure applications in deep subsea pipelines as well as colder pipelines that can sometimes be found in deep fields.

Features ofSpaceloft® Subsea

Features of Spaceloft® Subsea

  • Provides excellent performance for lines operating at higher temperatures over long lengths.
  • Suitable for long pipelines where inlet temperatures are low margin on hydrate or wax format is critical.
  • Thin profile minimises the usage limited space offshore.
  • Stable, low conductive to achieve the lowest possible Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient (OHTC) for the pipeline.

Applications of Spaceloft® Subsea

Spaceloft® Subsea is typically used for:

  • Pipe-in-pipe (PIP) applications in major offshore oil & gas platforms
  • Electrically trace heated pipe-in-pipe (PIP) system

Key Benefits

SUPERIOR THERMAL PERFORMANCE

Up to five times better thermal performance than competing insulation materials

REDUCED THICKNESS AND PROFILE

Equal thermal resistance at a fraction of the thickness of competing materials

LESS TIME AND LABOR TO INSTALL

Easily cut and packaged to suit customer rapid installation needs

PHYSICALLY ROBUST

Soft and flexible but with excellent springback, recovers thermal performance even after compression events as high as 50 psi

SIMPLIFIED INVENTORY

Unlike rigid insulations, adapts to any irregular pipe surface such as bundles and electrically heated PIP

HYDROPHOBIC YET BREATHABLE

Repels liquid water but allows vapor to pass through

AGING

Excellent long-term aging performance

EASY TO INSPECT

Once installed, panels can be easily inspected to ensure proper fill

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE

Landfill disposable, shot-free, with no respirable fiber content
