It's not enough to just insulate pipes and tanks for commercial and industrial use. The traditional value of payback remains but there are other considerations in today's world. These include safety and sustainability. Fire safety requirements, for example, are quite different for owner occupied buildings and industrial processing facilities. This presentation will examine fire and facility protection from corrosion under insulation (CUI). It will also explore the sourcing and use of environmentally safe materials and processes. In the end, attendees will learn the choice of commercial and industrial insulation doesn't begin and end with a commodity. It is a choice which affects the facility owner and process for many years. It can be a choice rooted in safety, security, energy savings, and good corporate citizenship.
