Flame retardant thermic covers for barrels: safety and energy savings.

Thermal insulation, an essential property for energy saving, and its application in the thermal covers for IBC and other drums.

As we already know, thermal insulation is a fact to take into account when reducing power cosumption, in every economic field. Every sector develops its own solutions to get energy efficiency itself.

a part of energy savings is obtained through thermal covers for barrels, which make barrels achieve an optimal thermal insulation to keep fluids in the required temperature.

In the fields of chemical, pharmaceutical and food industry, in ATEX zones and others, substances which require to be under specific termical conditions are usually stored. In these markets, a part of energy savings is obtained through thermal covers for barrels, which make barrels achieve an optimal thermal insulation to keep fluids in the required temperature.

These thermic covers could be used combining them with bands or heated floor bases. This means that multiple barrels can be kept into the desired temperature, without excesive energy consumption. The fabrics by which these thermic covers are made have impermeability features, are tear resistant, and resistant to weather changes. These features help to ensure an optimal handling and storage of the substances contained on barrels.

Texfire has developed a range of thermic covers for standard barrels of  200 up to 1000 litres with flame retardant features, which make them keep the content’s temperature during long time periods, both in cold and hot (-5º / +80º). This allows energy savings up to three times bigger than when not used.

The aluminium flame retardant fabric, which is used to tailor Texfire’s thermic covers for barrels, offers protection against fire,  The aluminium flame retardant fabric, solar radiation, isolates humidity and is suitable both indoors and outdoors.

Texfire’s flame retardant thermic covers belong to the range of thermic barriers, a product line not only oriented to energy savings, but also to protection against fire and heat.
