Fibretex 450

Fibretex 450 is a general purpose industrial insulation for use on process equipment, vessels, tanks and reactors. It is a medium duty thermal and acoustic insulation suitable for continuous operation up to 450oC.

Fibretex 450 Rockwool is a robust medium density insulation product with excellent isulation and fire resistance properties. It is manufactured by spinning a molten mixture of natural rock and recycled products into fine wool like fibres which are bonded together using a thermosetting resin. The product can be identified by its light brown appearance.

Applications

Fibretex 450 is designed for use in applications where operating temperatures do not exceed 450
oC. It is ideal for use in  process temperature control, energy conservation, condensation prevention, acoustic absorption treatment and personnel protection from plant and equipment. Typical applications include:

  • boilers
  • heat exchangers
  • reactors
  • ovens
  • kilns
  • autoclaves
  • large diameter piping

Fibertex 450 is easily installed by impaling the batts or blankets on weld pins and securing with speed clips. The un-faced surface of the Rockwool Batt or Blanket is to be applied to the hot surface to be insulated.

On small vessels the insulation may be simply retained by wire mesh or metal bands. For acoustic panel applications ensure the cavity dimension does not exceed the product thickness.

Features and Benefits

  • Lightweight highly durable insulation product
  • Forms shape of equipment to be insulated
  • Cost effective thermal insulation
  • Performance is not adversely effected from contact with water
  • Non combustible
  • Low chloride content resulting in less corrosion of insulated steel process equipment
  • Biosoluble safe to use product
  • Made from up to 40% recycled material
