Cryogel and Cryogel Z Aspen Aerogel Insulation for LNG Production and Storage facility Applications

Pacor is a proud partner/fabricator of Aspen Aerogels, manufacturer of revolutionary insulation material made from nanoporous aerogel, the world’s lowest density solid and most effective thermal insulator. Cryogel® and Cryogel Z® are flexible insulations designed for sub-ambient and cryogenic applications. Cryogel® can be bought as rolls or can be fabricated into a variety of customer specified parts. Cryogel Z® has an additional integral vapor barrier to prevent surface condensation and is intended to be used in full rolls. It is not designed to be fabricated. When it is cut, there is potential to lose the integrity of the lamination. Pacor also has the ability to produce specialty faced Cryogel products.

Description

Cryogel® and Cryogel Z® Aerogel insulation are flexible aerogel blankets designed to deliver maximum thermal protection with minimal weight and thickness. Their unique properties – extremely low thermal conductivity, superior flexibility, and water resistance (hydrophobicity) – make them a superior solution for sub-ambient and cryogenic applications. Additionally, Cryogel Z® has an integral vapor barrier engineered for zero water vapor permeability.

Applications

Applications for this unique product include industries such as LNG production and storage facilities. Cyrogel® can be foil scrim laminated on both sides or be purchased with a variety of specially formulated spray coatings on one or both sides.

Advantages

Cryrogel® and Cryogel Z® Aerogel insulation have numerous advantages over more traditional insulation products. These aerogel blankets have an extremely thin profile, which increases the internal volume within tight spaces. Cryogel® insulation blankets are also hydrophobic, which means they have outstanding resistance to moisture. Aerogel products have excellent resistance to flame spread and smoke emission. They are lighter weight than other insulations and have 2 – 8 times the insulation value for the same thickness.
