Webinar: Passive Fire Protection in Industrial ApplicationsThe processing and storage of flammable liquids and gases poses significant fire risk for facilities. Proper insulation systems can help safeguard personnel and protect industrial systems. During this webinar, you will learn about design considerations and how thermal insulation can provide passive fire protection on industrial process piping and equipment.10/12/2021
Webinar: Design considerations for chilled water applicationsCommonly used by commercial facilities, chilled water systems provide cooling for entire buildings or a network of buildings – including airports, convention centers, colleges, hospitals, hotels, stadiums, and offices. The operating temperatures at which these systems function as well as the environmental and operational conditions of these facilities make insulation a key component of the chilled water system.
That's why we're teaming up with ASHRAE this month to uncover the key factors to consider when selecting which insulation material to choose for your chilled water system -- such as vapor drive, moisture, indoor, outdoor and underground considerations.07/21/2021
Webinar: Design Considerations for Insulating District Energy SystemsAlec Cusick, Technical Services Engineer for Owens Corning, outlines the key considerations for District/Campus Energy insulation systems. Piping and equipment in these scenarios may be direct buried, in trenches, vaults or tunnels. The success of underground systems that carry steam, hot water and chilled water depends highly upon proper insulation system selection, design, and installation. Insulation systems must be capable of meeting the mechanical and moisture risks of these locations, along with providing long-term insulation efficiency. Alec also describes the key characteristics to look for in an insulating material, as well as the importance of proper accessories such as jacketings, coatings, and sealants.06/09/2021
Webinar: Cryogenic Liquid Spill Protection & LNG Pool Fire SuppressionAs companies look to shrink facility footprints, maintain safety and operate in new ways, now may be the time to consider a multi-pronged approach to LNG pool fire suppression and cryogenic liquid spill protection.
Owens Corning technical services engineer, Alec Cusick, will discuss considerations and priorities during cryogenic liquid spills – including thermal shock to concrete and steel, vaporization of liquid hydrocarbons and radiant heat during potential fires. Alec will provide information on two FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation systems designed for this scenario – the FOAMGLAS® Cryo Spill™ System and PFS® Gen. 2 pool fire suppression system.12/08/2020
