    Insulon Demo with Schlieren & Thermal Imaging

      Creating visual demonstrations for thermal insulation can be a challenging process. Heat can be a difficult thing to lay your eyes on! Luckily, we can visualize heat flow using some interesting optical systems. Schlieren imaging illustrates heat flow by observing small changes in the refractivity of air. Thermal imaging locates heat by capturing infrared radiation. […]

      High Temperature Vacuum Insulation (1000°C) with MLI

        Insulon Vacuum Insulation Components may feature high temperature multi layer insulation wrapped inside the vacuum annulus. While all Insulon parts reduce heat transfer due to convection, these advanced models also reduce heat transfer due to radiation. Like all of our parts, these radiation-reducing components are effective in environments up to 1000°C. Our parts are available […]
