For applications from -270°C to 1000°C
We design high performance vacuum insulation to enhance your application’s overall thermal performance. Our engineers consider everything from component-level parameters to system-level parameters, including temperature, geometry, pressure, vibration, structural load, other stresses, and environmental factors. Our goal is to deliver unique, powerful insulation solutions to help your application achieve optimal thermal energy efficiency.
Insulon® is built with corrosion-resistant metals including stainless steel, Inconel, and other alloys. Materials can be selected to fulfill food-grade or medical-grade insulation requirements. Our R&D department is actively researching ceramic Insulon®.
Insulon® components are available in lengths up to approximately 4 feet. Individual segments can be joined with couplings to make longer assemblies. Diameters can range from hypodermic needle gauge sizing up to approximately 1 foot.
Small Bore Pipes
Small diameter vacuum insulated pipes offer a clean solution for small bore pipe insulation. Insulon® vacuum insulation excels in space-constrained applications, and our technology is well-suited to small diameter, low footprint piping requirements. Some of our thinnest, smallest vacuum insulated tubes perform as sheaths for hypodermic needles in cryoablation therapies. Our small bore pipes can be designed for cryogenic or high-temperature applications, due to Insulon® Technology’s wide operating temperature range (-270°C to 1000°C).
Vacuum insulated hoses built with Insulon® Technology deliver high-performance insulation for applications ranging from -270°C to 1000°C. Our insulated flexible tubes work with you to transport thermally sensitive materials where you need them to go. A small bend radius allows our flexible hoses and tubes to move freely while consistently delivering reliable thermal insulation performance. Whether you are transporting cryogenic liquid nitrogen or high-temperature gases, our low overall wall thickness keeps volume flow rates high.
Pre-bent tubes allow your piping system to navigate thermally-challenging areas with reduced-risk of thermal exposure. Like all Insulon® products, our pre-bent tubing is designed to fit seamlessly into your system while improving thermal performance. Built to your specification, our pre-bent vacuum insulated tubes are delivered with bends in place. Just like our straight tubes and pipes (and all of our parts), the overall wall thickness of our double-walled bent tubing is barely above that of a single-walled tube.
Tubes & Pipes
Vacuum insulated tubes built with Insulon® Technology deliver high-performance thermal insulation in environments ranging from -270°C to 1000°C. An alternative to insulation wraps, blankets, and other insulation materials, vacuum insulated tubes have thermal insulation already built-in. The exposed surface of the corrosion-resistant pipe makes inspection a breeze, with no need to remove and reinstall insulation materials. The overall wall thickness of an Insulon® vacuum insulated pipe is barely above that of a single-walled pipe, delivering high performance insulation in a low profile, low maintenance package.
Vacuum insulated flasks, also referred to as dewars, can provide long term thermal and physical protection for a variety of applications. For cryogenic storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic substances, vacuum insulated dewars provide low heat leak which can help prevent material losses due to boil-off. For sensors and instruments, our dewar flasks may be fitted with a feedthrough cap to allow probes to reach the external environment. These flasks can be used as thermal barriers for data loggers to extend data collection in high temperature environments. Hexagonal end pieces provide a unique anti-rolling feature to prevent accidental falls.
Cans & Containers
Insulon® cans and containers are available in both open-top and closed-top designs. Our cylindrical vacuum insulated containers can provide insulation solutions for a variety of thermal applications, including storing temperature-sensitive materials, reducing material loss during transit by reducing boil-off, and protecting sensitive instruments from damaging thermal exposure. Our sturdy metal design provides both physical and thermal protection for delicate and valuable sensors and substances. Cans and containers may be combined with our glass to metal seals for fully hermetic feedthrough enclosures.
