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 consumption, 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:
- Food industry.
- In ATEX zones.
Substances which require to be under specific temperature 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 thermal 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 excessive energy consumption. The fabrics by which these thermal 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 in barrels.
Texfire has developed a range of thermal covers for standard barrels of 200 up to 1000 liters 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 aluminum flame retardant fabric, which is used to tailor Texfire's thermal covers for barrels, offers:
- Protection against fire.
- Solar radiation.
- Isolates humidity.
- Is suitable both indoors and outdoors.
Texfire's flame retardant thermal covers belong to the range of thermal barriers, a product line not only oriented to energy savings, but also to protection against fire and heat.
