Power Plant

Electricity is a vital part of our everyday lives and powers everything we touch or do on many levels. Most of our electricity is generated from traditional fuels, such as coal, natural gas, hydro and nuclear. Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind have grown over the last few decades. What do all of these have in common? Industrial insulation.

The major types of generating electric power plants:

– Fossil Fuel Power Plant
-Hydroelectric Power Plant
-Solar Power Plant
-Nuclear Power Plant
-Coal-Fired Power Plant
-Wind Power Towers


Insulation in Power Plants

Industrial insulation is a key component of any of these plants. It helps the steam generating boilers keep their temperatures at certain levels. These facilities contain miles and miles of mechanical piping which move materials from point A to point B. These pipes require insulation to maintain temperatures along the electricity generating process. Insulation helps to maintain a certain temperature along the electricity generation process.


Choosing the correct insulation is critical when working in such extreme, high-temperature environments. The insulation can help prevent CUI (corrosion under insulation), weathering, and injuries or death. Insulation will also reduce the amount of unnecessary noise on the plant floor. Most importantly, it creates energy efficiency in the systems to reduce waste. Power plants need the most cost-effective and thermally efficient insulation materials that will last 15 to 20 years or beyond.
