Insulation of heating systems

In our modern world people often overpay the big money for heating, because the pipes through which passes the heat is not sufficiently protected. Besides, quite often, this leads not only to greater overpayment for heating, but also to the failure of the pipeline and it entails even greater costs.

Let us consider how the heating system works!

Water that passes through pipes inside the building through radiators or batteries heats the air. It circulates through the pipes and returned to the boiler, which, in turn, heats it to a certain temperature.

But it often happens that a boiler-house, providing your house with heat, is not close and therefore the heating pipes run under the ground. At this point, it is very important to avoid failure of the heating system, and the time to insulate pipes and to accumulate heat in the place where you need it.

An effective solution to this problem is!

Insulation for pipes of heating systems is a quality solution for saving energy, protecting pipes from freezing and increasing the efficiency of the entire heating system. Insulation of heating systems is important both indoors and outside in the open air.

As shown by failures, by passing hot water in a non-insulated pipeline from the boiler to the point of destination, it lost about 25% of the heat.

It is important to note that the main insulation in residential buildings is the insulation of heating pipes in the basement, as it is from there that perhaps the original main heat loss.

No less important is the insulation of heating pipes in the open air and under the groundto protect the system from mechanical damage. The process of insulation of pipes in the street not much different from the insulation in the room. The main thing to bear in mind that on the street more moisture and, accordingly, the material should have good resistance to water!

Choose insulation for heating pipes in the open air or in the room you need so that it possessed the following properties according to the SNiP:

  • Low thermal conductivity
  • High thermal insulation properties
  • Good resistance to chemicals
  • Have a high fire-resistant properties
  • High temperature resistance (houses the temperature does not exceed 105ºC, and the production can reach 700 ° C)
  • Have a good resistance to moisture and to corrosion
  • Durability (the material must maintain the technical properties for the entire lifetime)
  • Sound insulation properties (when it is necessary to check whether there is breakage in the heating system, and it gives noise)


What kind of insulation would be effective?

For the decision of problems of thermal insulation of heating systems are used the following materials:


Insulation made of foam rubberdue to its closed-cell structure, does not accumulate moisture, provides reliable protection of pipelines against corrosion, reduce heat loss, works in harsh climatic conditions. Rubber insulation ,due to its flexibility, easy to install, even in tight spaces. Insulation is applied at a temperature range of -200.. 105ºC.

To protect the rubber insulation from mechanical damage and to protect the heating pipes under the ground found wide use such protective coating the foil with an adhesive layer (works at a temperature range of -40.. 130 º C) and the protective coating of the SILVER GUARD (works at a temperature range of -60... 100 º C).

Materials of basalt fibers are used at higher temperatures (cylinders with -200.. 250ºС, Mat lamellar to 250ºС, Mat stitched to 750ºС). The temperature of the basaltic materials is so high that the SNiP can be applied for insulation of boiler and boiler rooms. Very often basalt cylinders applies for outdoor heating systems, including for laying underground.

It is unlikely, after the above mentioned who may have questioned the importance of thermal insulation for pipes of heating systems. This is one of the important measures, which will save your time and money!

It would be nice to contact the company, which has long established itself on the market as a reliable manufacturer and importer of quality insulation materials and is a company SANPREIS. The products of our company has all permits and certificates of quality, protocols, class of combustibility.
