Cheniere Energy Trial
  • Insulation Incorporated: contractor
  • Install on 36” line
    • 80mm Cryogel system vs 9.5” (2 layer FOAMGLAS system)
  • Results
    • For large bore pipe and fittings: 80% faster install rate for Cryogel
    • For small bore pipe and fittings: 10-20% faster install for Cryogel

(note small bore applies when half sections are applied)

  • Between Friday, October 12 and Tuesday, October 16, crews from Zampell Insulation installed foil-faced Cryogel on a section of piping at the Distrigas LNG terminal in Everett, MA

Scope of work included two 26 ft pipe sections abutting sliding shoes:

  • 24” liquid transfer line
  • 12” vapor return line

* Note that the IR camera used for this study (an Infracam SD from FLIR) does not compensate well for low-emissivity surfaces like Alumaguard. Therefore, although the relative temperature differences between observed surfaces are correct (particularly for surfaces imaged in the same frame), the absolute value of the temperature readings may not be accurate.

summary and conclusions
Summary and Conclusions
  • Despite some early delays re: the vapor stop specification and the most efficient cutting tools, the Cryogel system clearly offers productivity advantages
    • Faster installation
    • Ease-of-use in awkward or confined areas
    • Elimination of expansion / contraction joints
  • All the insulation systems near the dock behaved as expected, and showed no defects in either material or workmanship. These included:
    • 3” HD foamglas on the pipe shoes
    • 4” and 6” standard foamglas
    • 2.8” (7 layers of 10 mm) Cryogel 10201-Z
  • Note that the sections using 3” and 4” foamglas are clearly underinsulated

Size: 8”

Fluid: NGL (C2+)

Temperature: -90 oF

Existing FOAMGLASS thickness: 150 mm.( Two layers of 75 mm, prefabricated pipe cover).

Cryogel Thickness: 60 mm

Cryogel install time: 15 minutes

Cryogel Advantages:

Reduction in the outside diameter of the insulated pipe thus less cladding material is used.

No fabrication required and less install time required.

Less accessories.
