COLD INSULATION

Cold insulation should be considered where operating temperatures are below ambient and where protection is required against heat gain, condensation or freezing. In designing an insulation system where formulae and surface coefficients are used they should be to an appropriate international standard, for example, BS 5422 is recommended.

SELECTION COLD INSULATION OF MATERIALS
Closed-cell insulation is the most commonly specified material used for cold work because it possesses a degree of resistance to water vapour and because the thermal conductivity (k factor) of some of these materials is better than the fibrous alternative products.
