Chilled water HVAC systems offer numerous benefits. These include the ability to precisely control the temperature in one of hundreds of rooms and the power to scale a system to fit even the world's tallest building. But a system that employs below-ambient water piping is bound to have drawbacks, namely the strong possibility of condensation on pipes and insulation. Such moisture can cause weakened insulation at best, or the spread of mold and pipe failure at worst.
Join this presentation to learn how phenolic pipe insulation can help address these issues. Coupled with a good vapor barrier, it effectively protects below-ambient pipes from condensation.
Attendees will see an overview of a typical chilled water system, learn the basics of phenolic materials, understand how phenolic insulation compares to other common insulation types, and ultimately learn how to select a superior insulation for below-ambient piping.
- Learn the basics behind chilled water systems
- Understand the inherent characteristics and strengths of phenolic insulation
- Learn how phenolic insulation compares with other common insulation types, and which is best for below-ambient piping
