Thermal Insulation Technology
Recent improvements in forcefulness detachment thermal insulation
technology hit finally enabled HMA plants to insulate the neglected “jumper” hoses and recover significant top in forcefulness savings.
Typical Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) plants are equipped with hundreds of feet of uninsulated flexible metal “jumper” hoses. The primary function of the “jumper” hose is to transfer blistering impact oil in a primary jacketed pipe across a connection flange. Traditional insulating technologies that utilize petrified pelage and hard metal cladding are not capable of servicing these hoses as they hit a small diameter and a rattling tight curve radius. The result is that the “jumper” hoses are left uninsulated and they are a significant maker of heat loss costing HMA plants thousands of dollars each year in forcefulness inefficiencies.
Recent improvements in forcefulness detachment technology hit finally enabled HMA plants to insulate the neglected “jumper” hoses and recover significant top in forcefulness savings.
In addition to the economic benefits, the new detachment arm technology is easily revilement to size with an ordinary pair of scissors and is quickly installed in the field. In some cases the detachment arm may be equipped with a offer and loop approaching to further simplify the installation on existing lines without line separation or interruption. The offer and loop approaching also allows for cushy access to impact lines patch performing maintenance procedures or trouble-shooting grouping components.
Introducing the HMA industry to silicone rubber scholar detachment technologies will help demonstrate unrealized forcefulness fund patch creating a safer workplace environment.
