SUM Guard® technology has been created based on many years of experience in fabrication of custom-made reusable thermal insulation covers. It connects modern insulation fabrics with thought-out and unique design solutions.
SUM Guard® :
- very high efficiency of reducing energy loss
- a wide range of application operating temperatures (from -35°C to 1250°C)
- the ability to insulate complex shapes
- resistance to impacts, vibrations, deformation
- no upper size limitations
- easy tool free installation and disassembly
- self-supporting construction
The effectiveness of the SUM Guard® technology is determined by the insulation filling. We prefer to use as a standard a glass-fiber (e-glass) mechanically needled mat with a density of at least 130 kg/m3.. On top of proven insulating properties needled e-glass mat has very high mechanical resistance while maintaining flexibility and hence can perform the secondary role of the cover’s skeleton. Using e-glass needled mat (instead of mineral wools) guarantees structural integrity of the cover throughout its lifetime. Other materials can be used in combination or independently also: silicate mats, synthetic rubber, aerogels and many others.
Inner and outer fabric
To protect insulation against weather conditions, chemicals, temperature and mechanical impact there are a number of special fabrics available in various impregnation versions and in various coatings (silicone, PTFE, PU, etc.).
The ability of SUM Guard® jackets to fit perfectly in all conditions and provide easy access to insulated equipment is achieved through the use of CAD/CAM production technologies that have been integrated within all aspects of the production cycle. Fasteners such as belted shackles constitute a backup for primary closure techniques (like hook & loop tape) ensuring that installed covers will remain installed and function as designed for longer.
In next parts there will be presented particular technologies of SUM Guard®.
