Energy conservation is certainly the most important need for all industries. Energy is produced as Electrical energy and Heat or Thermal Energy.
Most Industries have Boilers, Furnaces, Kilns and such heat producing equipments for various processes. All such components where heat is produced are constructed using heat-resisting materials to withstand high operating temperatures using refractory fire bricks and insulating bricks. Further when heat is conveyed to other areas of the plant through piping, ducts and other means these accessories have necessarily to be insulated to prevent heat losses and save energy costs.
Our area of operation includes,
- Hot and Cold Insulation.
- Acoustic Insulation.
- Humidification and Exhaust ductings.
- Genset Exhaust Insulation.
- Refractory lining.
Hot and Cold Insulation :
Fuels are scarce, expensive and worst of all getting depleted fast. Hence the vital need of the hour is the most efficient use of heat energy and maximum conservation of types of fuels. The growing importance of energy from a cost and control angle and the demands for special applications have spurred developments in thermal insulation to make rapid strides.
Wastages is rightly eliminated in all processes, yet where steam is used as a source of power, it is common to see this steam being blown away through leaky flanges, Valves and pipes and even worse through barely or badly insulated boiler surfaces, vessels or steamlines all radiating heat which is wasted in to surrounding air instead of being put to useful service. This wasted heat results in extravagant fuel consumption unnecessarily high fuel bill and in low process efficiencies and increased production costs.
Acoustic Insulation :
Acoustic insulation is a type of soundproofing that attempts to prevent sound from entering or exiting an enclosed space by creating some a barrier between the interior and the exterior area. Because sound is able to travel in more than one fashion, the exact process and choice of materials used to manage sound insulation will vary. In some cases, the insulation does effectively reduce sound transmission, but does not completely eliminate the transmission of sounds.
One of the more common approaches to acoustic insulation is the creation of a barrier of some type between the origin of the sound and the surrounding area. The installation of panels on interior walls is one example. With this application, the panels contain foam or other materials that can help to absorb echoing, reverberations, or other types of sound transmissions.
Another option with acoustic insulation involves inserting sound-reducing materials within an existing wall. While this approach does not eliminate sound from penetrating the wall itself, it can usually absorb enough of the sound to minimize the amount that emerges on the opposite side of the wall. This approach is often used in apartment buildings and other areas where people live and work in close proximity.
Commercial businesses sometimes use soundproofing technology. Restaurants, schools, and health care facilities use architectural acoustics to reduce noise for their customers. Office buildings may try to make cubicle spaces less noisy for workers using the phone.
Humidification and Exhaust ductings
To control humidification and temperature parameters ducting have to be insulated efficiently yet economically and similarly genset exhaust and silencer has to be insulated to control room temperature and efficient functioning of generation. This also our speciality which is normally coming in textile industry for their humidification systems and exhaust ductings.
Providing layers of fire-bricks, insulation boards etc for walls and roofs of boilers, furnaces, heaters, ovens etc... such that the inner layers of refractory bricks resists high temperatures, pressures etc and layers of insulation backing ensures the minimum escape of heat units to atmosphere.
It is common to observe many furnaces with poor insulation radiating expensive heat units to atmosphere through opening, chimneys etc. For, temperature is consistently flowing to comparatively colder bodies by conduction, convection and Radiation.
The selection of refractories for any particular application is made with a view to achieve the best performance of equipment furnace, kiln or boiler and depends on certain properties of refractories. Similarly the choice of refractory material for a given application will be determined by the type of furnace or the heating unit. Hence we have to consider the points such as
- Area of application
- Working Temperature
- Extent of abrasion and impact
- Heat transfer and fuel conservation
- Cost considerations
Therefore it is essential to evaluate the above conditions before the lining of equipment such as furnace, boilers, kilns, incinerators. The main objective of lining is to achieve MAXIMUM CONSERVATION OF FUEL @ LOWER COST.
