Textile lagging 

TEXTILE LAGGING

TEXTILE THERMAL INSULATION SYSTEMS

Texfire’s textile lagging offers 3 advantages
before other conventional insulation systems.
FLAME RETARDANT

Texfire manufactures this thermal barriers with flame retardant fabric, which brings a passive protection against fires.

FLEXIBLES

This textile insulation can be installed in reduced or difficult to access areas.

DETACHABLE

Easy to install and uninstall, technical staff is not needed to manage them.

THERMAL BARRIERS FOR MULTIPLE SECTORS AND APPLICATIONS

Textile lagging can easily adapt to different geometries as, for example: equipments with pipes, valves, escapes, boat collectors, expansion joints, flanges, boilers, filters, heat exchangers, fluid transport, turbos, flowmeters, turbines, etc.

Its flexibility and price had made that the installation of this type of thermal barriers becomes more usual in industries such disparate as food industry, naval sector, petrochemistry, power plants or automotive sector, amongst others.

MULTIPLE ADVANTAGES

This type of textile insulator, is a practical, clean and economic solution and thus it improves energy efficiency.. In addition of being more flexible, this insulating systems are cheaper and offer more advantages than rigid or conventional lagging:

  • Easy to install and do not require from technical staff for it.
  • They don’t detach fibers during its installation.
  • They could be dismounted easily for inspection and maintenance tasks.
  • They are impermeable and offer an excellent resistant to acids, vapours and agressive liquids.
  • Easy to clean.
  • They avoid that personnel suffer possible burns by its contact.
  • They minimize vibrations.
  • They provide acoustic insulation.
  • By being made by flame retardant fabric, they bring passive protection against fire to those covered elements.
  • They offer excellent flexibility and could be easily adjusted to complex geometries.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Maintaining a stable temperature propitiate important energy and economic savings.

Thermal insulation is indispensable in any element working in temperatures up to 45ªC, so for security reasons, as well as especially to achieve maximum energy efficiency, retaining heat and avoiding freezing in cold areas, which is translated in notable energy savings and, for that matter, also economic.

INDUSTRIAL TAILORING

Texfire designs and manufactures textile insulators of any size and geometry, made-to-measure.

Every lagging requires being designed and produced to bring answer to some technical and mechanical needs according to the function it has to develop.

Texfire, specialist in flame retardant technical fabrics and industrial garment-making, offers an integral service in design and manufacturing of textile thermal insulators in multiple formats and applications, for example:

  • THERMAL MATS
  • FLAME RETARDANT COVERS
  • SPREADS
  • EXPANSION JOINTS

CUSTOMIZED MANUFACTURING

All laggings are designed and manufactured individually. In order to produce a made-to-measure thermal insulator, it is needed to follow a protocol of 4 steps:

  1. Establish working temperatures the flame retardant fabric is going to be submitted.
  2. Define all technical dimensions, as for example the piece’s measures.
  3. Select all those fabrics that perform better to the posed needs.
  4. Select the flame retardant complements that better adjust, for example: type of spring, closures, etc.

Due to fabrics used by Texfire are inherent flame retardant (don’t have a flame retardant primer, but the thread itself is flame retardant) the technical team is able to produce thermal insulators for cases when temperatures arrive to peaks over 1.000ªC, not losing its features in time.
