Applications

Applications

Insulon® provides solutions to some of the world’s most complex thermal challenges.

Aerospace

Insulon® provides durable, rugged, low maintenance insulation that the aerospace industry can count on. Auxiliary power units, fluid lines, and bleed air systems can all benefit.

An alternative to textile insulation used on APU exhausts, Insulon® can help insulate the exhaust muffler and protect surrounding components from APU exhaust temperatures.

Adding Insulon® to the pathways taken by compressed air and gases can help bleed air systems function more efficiently. Insulon® can help maintain lower skin temperatures and minimize temperature drops within bleed air systems.

Insulon® can provide thermal protection for both rigid and flexible aircraft fluid lines. Insulon® can help guard against exposure to extreme temperatures and prevent temperature fluctuations for fuel, oil, lubricants, coolants, hydraulics, and air conditioning systems.

Appliances

Insulon® can help heater-based appliances use thermal energy more efficiently. Whether transferring hot air, steam, or liquid, Insulon® helps concentrate heat in the target area, making appliances more efficient and effective while reducing wasteful energy loss. Built from rugged, durable metals, Insulon can be integrated into commercial as well as household appliances.

Automotive Exhaust Systems

Automotive exhaust systems may be presented with a variety of demands including maintaining peak performance, reducing toxic emissions, and improving the efficacy of electric vehicles. By retaining more heat in the hot end of the exhaust system, Insulon® can help improve performance for both commercial and racing vehicles. Adding Insulon® around the catalytic converter can help reduce time to light-off temperature, aiding in the reduction of toxic emissions due to cold starts.

Batteries & Fuel Cells

Temperature can be a major factor in draining batteries and fuel cells of their power, limiting longevity and efficiency. Insulon® can help combat these issues and improve efficiency by maintaining specific temperatures. Applications include vehicle batteries, hydrogen transport, and a wide range of other fuel cells.

Cryogenic Transfer Hoses

Flexible tubes and hoses built with Insulon® Technology can safely transfer cryogenic fluids including  liquid nitrogen, hydrogen, or carbon dioxide. Insulon® helps maintain safe external touch temperatures while reducing material loss due to boil off. Cryogenic transfer tubes are available in both rigid and flexible.

Food & Beverage

Stainless steel Insulon® parts are easily sterilized, food grade thermal barriers. Insulon® cool-to-touch steam wands are used in high end espresso machines to help protect baristas from accidental burns. Insulon® steam wands allow baristas to make direct contact without the need for towels or protective rubber sleeves. Plus, Insulon® steam wands have a luxury chrome finish, complementing the aesthetic appeal of high end espresso machines.

Heat not Burn Devices

Insulon® can provide a range of benefits to heat not burn products suitable for a range of substances including tobacco, cannabis, or coffee. Incorporating Insulon® into an HnB device can lead to system wide enhancements, including faster ramp up time, longer battery life, and reduced external temperature.

Medical Devices

Stainless steel Insulon® parts are easily sterilized and safe for use in medical applications. Ultra thin Insulon® sheaths are used to insulate needles during thermal ablation therapies such as cryoablation. With less than 0.5 mm in overall wall thickness, Insulon® sheaths deliver reliable thermal insulation while preserving the minimally invasive nature of these procedures.

Military & Defense

Thermal imaging technology is constantly improving, making stealth more crucial than ever. Munitions, batteries, sound suppressors, fuel lines, and many other components emit heat. These components may be more difficult to detect with thermal imaging when protected by an Insulon® thermal barrier.
