A boiler is an instrument where fluid like water is heated to a temperature of as high as 200°F or even more. The boiler is connected with two pipes, one that brings in the fluid and the other one transport the heated fluid to its destination. The transition phase that takes place from taking the fluid to its destination contributes to the energy cost quite heavily. During transportation, a certain level of heat is lost that causes excessive power consumption and heavy electricity bills.
The heat thus lost can be preserved by using insulators on the boiler pipe. It is the most cost-effective way to keep unnecessary utility expenditure at bay. Let us look at how boiler pipe insulation works:
1. Preserves the heat: The boiler pipe insulation preserve the heat from escaping in the surrounding. It traps the heat and keeps it to the boiler pipe. This prevents overheating of the surrounding work area and also reduces utility consumption.
2. Prevents Workplace Injuries: With so much heat transmitted by the un-insulated boiler pipeline, it may become difficult for anyone to work in a high-temperature room. This may also lead to workplace injuries as an accidental touch to the pipes can burn the skin of the workers. Applying insulators on these pipes will ensure that no such injuries are caused and the workplace remains a safe place to work.
3. Easy to apply and remove: Most boiler pipe insulators are easy to apply and remove. They can withstand a temperature of 550°F and easily available in the market.
For the safety of the workplace and to preserve utility the companies should use insulators.
