Total Solutions is heavily involved in insulation. With extensive pipe networks at height, our rope access insulators are able to undertake difficult to reach and congested areas quickly and easily. We provide rope access insulation services in many areas.
Industrial Thermal Insulation
Thermal insulation is a valuable investment and a tremendous asset to energy conservation and process efficiency. Properly maintained insulation contributes significantly to a plant’s operating bottom line, in turn helping to reduce CO2 emissions, carbon footprint and operating costs.
An average sized plant has around:
- 60 miles of insulated pipe work
- The equivalent of 7 football fields of insulated equipment
- Between 10% & 19% of damaged/ missing insulation
- Many historically un-insulated hot (useful energy) processes
Significant untapped energy saving potential exists where there is damaged or missing insulation. Total Solutions offers a complete service of insulation inspection, defect identification and repairs. Using rope access, we are able to inspect difficult to reach areas and reinstate insulation with the minimum of disruption and quickly.
When the costs to carry out the repairs/ improvements are compared to the cost of energy lost per annum, a return on investment can provide a significant return.
Since the introduction of this service Total Solutions has identified significant energy savings for our customers resulting in reduced operating costs long term, reduced CO2 emissions, reduced carbon footprint, reduced climate change levy burdens and improved environmental performance.
Regardless of the size and shape of equipment to be insulated, Total Solutions is able to quickly deliver high quality, tailor made removable insulation mattresses, also known as removable insulation jackets.
