Pipe support is an important part of the pipeline installation. Due to the influence of traditional material properties, for a long period of time, the pipeline uses common pipe supports, that is, the metal pipe supports and metal heat pipes directly Hoops are fixed or welded together directly. Because metal is a good conductor of heat, the metal surface of the tube has been exposed in the air, which is equivalent to the installation of heat sinks on the official road of the steam, and the loss of heat in the pipeline medium is constantly losing heat energy. According to actual measurement, the heat dissipated by the brackets has been called an obstacle to corporate profits. In order to save energy and reduce emissions and save production costs, companies are now paying attention to the heat dissipation of ordinary pipelines, and constantly improving and attempting to overcome the apron insulation plan.

The main role of the pipe support is to support and guide the role of the steam pipe. There are several types of insulated pipe supports in the market, but the reason for not promoting it is that the traditional insulation material is very easy to use because of the low density and strength of traditional materials. Pulverization or deformation cannot completely solve this problem for a long time. The second conventional hard material has a large thermal conductivity and is not an ideal thermal insulation material.

 

aerogel insulation blanket produced by our company has an ultra-low thermal conductivity and strength, which is different from the thermal insulation mechanism of traditional materials. It is an excellent material for making insulated pipe supports.

 

We have done experiments and placed a felt under a high pressure of 80 MPa to perform a structural destructive test. As a result, the felt did not change at 80 MPa. The heat capacity of the material did not change, and the main reason was that the thermal conductivity became smaller. This is also why the aerogel blanket is the only choice for insulated tubes.

 

The customer use case shows that the cost savings of aerogel insulation pipe support is also considerable. If a 2000m DN300 steam pipe is used, the number of pipe supports is about 400, and the annual energy saving cost can reach more than 135,000 U.S. dollars.

The aerogel insulation pipe support is easy to install, has good heat preservation effect, and is strong and durable. Under the conditions of repeated thermal expansion and contraction, there will be no phenomenon such as slippage or slippage. It is an excellent material for long-term management of energy conservation.
