Cryogenics Insulation

In co-operation and technical guidance with Perlita y Vermiculita (Spain), we now provide for the Oil and Gas industry.

This includes:

  • The supply and installation of cryogenic perlite in LNG tanks
  • Perlite works in LNG tanks, perlite removal from cryogenic facilities
  • Perlite installation in cold boxes and oxygen, nitrogen and argon tanks
  • Cold Box Emptying


What is cryogenic isolation and how does it work?

Expanded perlite is an excellent insulator for low or very low temperature cryogenic systems. It is widely used in LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) isolation tanks, noble gas tanks, oxygen, nitrogen, argon etc. in cryogenic state.

Cryogenics: temperatures below -150 (degrees) C
Perlite: One of the best isolation materials, with a conductivitiy of 0,038 W/m.K

 

 

 

Perlita y Vermiculita has successfully implemented the Cryogenic Isolation of several LNG tanks for 10 years.  Since the beginning the company has developed its own technology and process, running the projects reaching the highest standards of safety, quality and planning.

To supply and install, we will include the use of the following equipment:

  • 4 Portable Expanding Systems able to expand 900kg/h
  • 2 Full perlite installation systems
  • 1 Complete Re-Perliting equipment
