THERMFIBER Industrial Blanket Insulation is available in four nominal densities, 4 through 10 lb/cu.ft. that meets or exceeds the requirements of ASTM C 553. Industrial Blanket Insulation products are available in various thicknesses from 1″ to 6″, in 1/2″ increments. Standard width is 24″; standard length is 48″.
Start up Procedure
On initial start-up only, heat rise should not exceed 15ºF per minute to allow binder to dissipate without excessive temperature rise. Thermal conductivity is not affected. When Industrial Blanket Insulation is used in applications exposed to high air velocities, adequate protection must be provided to prevent erosion of insulation. Severe vibration may cause degradation of insulation under some conditions. Contact your representative for recommendations on unusual applications.
