Cryogenic insulation (0015)

Perlite insulation for cryogenic or low temperature uses offers excellent thermal properties and is relatively low in cost. In addition, it is easy to handle and install, and does not shrink, sell, warp, or slump, which means you can rest assured your insulation stays effective for years to come. Perlite is non-combustible, and meets fire regulations. Because it is an inorganic material, it is rot and vermin proof. Contact us today to get a solution that meets your needs.

typically used in:

  • Used as insulation in cryogenic tanks containing fluid gasses.

Physical Properties

Thermal
conductivity:

0.025 - 0.029 W/m° K

Thermal Conductivity varies with temperature, density, pressure, and conductivity of the gas which fills the annulus or insulation space. For example, evacuated perlite provides a superior insulation with thermal conductivity up to 40 times less than 0.029 W/m.K depending on vacuum and temperature

density:

45kg/m³ ± 10kg

Sieve analysis:

Max. 10% + 1.18mm
Min. 50% + 0.15mm

USP

  • Lightweight – high insulative capacity
  • Long lifespan
  • Fire resistant
  • Saves time in installation compared to other insulation materials
  • Inorganic – rot and vermin safe
