Dyplast publishes 3rd article in LNG magazine "Risk mitigation, Beyond Standards"

The third Dyplast article published in the LNG Industry magazine July- August 2016 issue is entitled “Risk Mitigation Beyond Standards”. The article looks at LNG insulation systems risk mitigation, making sure that the insulant materials comply with ASTM C591 and CINI 2014 standards. The engineer and asset owner must identify which physical properties are the most pertinent, establish minimum and maximum values as dictated by ASTM and or EN test methods and require that they be tested at cryogenic temperatures. Good risk mitigation should track, anticipate, and plan for failure and problems that should not occur.

Dyplast Blog: Clarity in IIAR 2016 Conference Technical Papers

 

One of Dyplast's efforts over the past years has been to advocate for clarity and full disclosure of technical and empirical information - - not only in Dyplast literature but also in literature generally within the public domain. Dyplast's recent Technical Bulletins, Qwik Guides, and Articles (e.g. LNG Industry Magazine) set good examples.

Thus we feel we must comment on a Technical Paper presented at the recent IIAR Conference in Orlando titled: "Hygrothermal Analyses of Ammonia Refrigeration Pipe Insulation Systems" which contains misinformation. The Paper represents that it used computer modeling to predict moisture content that would accumulate in various insulation materials on ammonia refrigeration pipe over long periods, up to 10 years. Pipe insulation scenarios with and without vapor retarders were modeled.

In general, we offer that readers should always be cautious when evaluating conclusions from computer modeling software that are contrary to empirical evidence and logical thought processes.

Dyplast's most pertinent comments include:

Dyplast publishes new article, "Logical Thinking" in LNG Industry Magazine

Dyplast Products’ new article in LNG Industry Magazine titled "Logical Thinking" is an examination of the complexities surrounding insulant performance at cryogenic temperatures.

Physical properties of a particular insulant are often measured only at ambient temperatures. This article aims to use logical thinking to examine the performance of insulants at LNG (cryogenic) temperatures.

Fortunately, standards such as ASTM and CINI increasingly require physical properties to be measured at cryogenic temperatures, so that in the future such logical extrapolations may be less necessary.

Technical Bulletin 0116 Insulation Performance at Cryogenic Temperatures


 

Dyplast's latest Technical Bulletin offers insight into insulation performance at cryogenic temperatures. Since insulation performance in cryogenic applications, although not theoretical physics, is indeed a complex subject, the approach in this article is somewhat along the lines of gedankenexperiment. In other words, the objective is to logically examine the complex issues that surround  insulant performance at cryogenic temperatures - - a different approach than simply examining and comparing numbers advertised in datasheets, particularly those measured under ambient conditions with the hope or trust that they accurately represent insulant performance at -265ºF (-165ºC).

The above chart suggests that polyiso and aerogel insulants achieve materially better k-factors than either cellular glass or elastomeric insulants. So why not logically exclude the latter from future projects, especially since earlier paragraphs in this article offered that thermal insulation's ultimate objective is to "insulate". Wouldn't logical thinking conclude that thermal conductivity "k-factor" is the paramount indicator.

Get ready for a somewhat mind-bending ride if you desire to better parse the world of cryogenic insulation. As Elon Musk (re: Tesla, SolarCity, and Space-X) is fond of saying, if your brain does not hurt at the end of every day, you're not doing your job!

Technical Bulletin 1215 Comparisons Between Aerogel and Polyiso in Low Temperature Mechanical Insulation


 

 

Dyplast's latest Technical Bulletin 1215 offers a comparison between Aerogel and Polyiso in low temperature mechanical insulation. The purpose of this Technical Bulletin is two-fold: 1) to examine aerogel insulation (specifically Aspen Aerogels® Cryogel®Z) in some detail, and 2) to compare Cryogel Z with polyisocyanurate insulation (specifically Dyplast's ISO-C1®/2.5).

So! Is Cryogel Z a revolutionary insulant that will eventually dominate "cold" mechanical insulation applications? Or at the other extreme does Cryogel Z have fatal flaws? If the product is still evolving, is it ready for prime-time? The viewpoints of self-described "informed" stakeholders continue to be radically different; and internet research uncovers conflicting opinions regarding performance.  This Technical Bulletin may sway opinions one way or the other, yet at a minimum it is intended to assist stakeholders as they select the optimal insulant, and engineers as they design the optimal insulation system

Technical Bulletin 1115 on Thermal Aging of Insulation in Low-Temperature Applications


 

Dyplast's latest Technical Bulletin addresses "Thermal Aging", which is the gradual reduction of thermal insulation performance over time experienced by some insulants due to latest-generation (highly efficient) blowing agents diffusing out of the closed cells within the insulant. There are many insulants with initially "poor" thermal efficiencies that exhibit no thermal aging (i.e. they remain poor), and alternatively there are insulants with initially "superior" thermal efficiencies that even after aging continue to have superior thermal efficiencies. Thus over the lifetime of the insulation system this latter class of insulants offers energy savings that far exceed those of non-aging insulants!

 

1)  Insulants manufactured with Hydrocarbons, HFCs, or HFOs generally have better (i.e. lower) thermal conductivities than those blown with air or air-equivalents;
