Insultech Heat Shield for Armstrong TVS4000-2011 Steam Trap Radiant Heat Loss

“Solving the Problem with TVS4000-2011 Steam Trap Radiant Heat Loss”

INSULTECH® Heat Shield Insulation is a “cost effective” thermal insulation system designed with many of the features and benefits of a traditional blanket insulation system. INSULTECH® Heat Shield Insulation is removable and reusable for easy installation, easy removal and easy re-installation, making access to steam specialties simple. Reduce cycle times and extend trap service life.

INSULTECH® Heat Shield Insulation will create a SAFER WORK ENVIRONMENT by lowering surface temperatures on critical applications. Enhance your V.P.P. (Volunteer Protection Program ) with a simple solution.

INSULTECH® Heat Shield Insulation is compliant to OSHA standards for exposed heated surfaces, if there is a potential for injury. OSHA standards include; 1910.261(k)(11) , 1910.262©(9) , 1910.23©(3) , 1910.147 & 1910.132(a) , Section 5(a)(1) of the OSHA act.

INSULTECH® Heat Shield Insulation will SAVE ENERGY. Steam Traps covered with INSULTECH® will show an estimated ENERGY SAVINGS of 75%. With average surface temperatures of 250 F, this reduction equates to payback periods on investment of less than 6 months. The savings will continue, year after year. A single steam trap can generate $130.00-$740.00 per year in energy loss. Calculated savings will be $95.00 to $546.00 per year. A 15 year service life could be $1,425.00 to $8,190.00 for each steam trap! Following a steam trap survey can lead to very large energy savings.

INSULTECH® Heat Shield Insulation is a custom fit, self-contained insulation system. Design LT500HS, features a sewn, self-contained construction with Velcro® flaps for easy install. INSULTECH® is capable of withstanding both temperature and frequent removal. The quick release fastening system with a high quality sewn construction allows easy removal and re-installation. Trap inspection can be performed without removal through an inspection grommet, strategically placed. Labeling includes information derived from your steam trap management program.
