Performance

High Performance

Insulon Performance can be carefully adjusted using various parameters such as material selection, length, diameter, and wall thicknesses of both internal and external tubes. Insulon parts are custom-designed and engineered to fulfill the specific requirements of individual applications.

In the world of insulation, we are often approached for specific R-values and K-values for Insulon Technology. Because of the custom nature of Insulon parts, it is difficult to give exact measurements for such values. The analyses below detail some examples of the performance you can expect from Insulon Thermal Barriers. If you have a question regarding potential performance in your application, contact us.

External Touch Temperature
Insulon® Straight Tube

For this analysis, forced hot air was run through a 6 inch long, 9/16 inch OD, 1/2 inch ID Insulon® Straight Tube. The graph at right shows the external touch temperature compared to the hot air temperature at the inlet. Touch temperature measurements were taken at the midpoint (3 inches along the 6 inch tube). Ambient temperature was 23°C.

Inlet & Outlet Temperature
Insuline™ Straight Tube

For this analysis, forced hot air was run through a 12 inch long Insuline™ Straight Tube. The graph at right shows the inlet and outlet temperatures, as well as the external touch temperatures with 100°C inlet and 500°C inlet. Touch temperature measurements were taken at the midpoint (6 inches along the 12 inch tube). Ambient temperature was 23°C.

Liquid Nitrogen Boil-Off
Insulon® Open-Top Can

For this analysis, liquid nitrogen was allowed to evaporate from a 3 inch Insulon® Can and a single-walled stainless steel can. The graph at right shows the boil-off rates of liquid nitrogen for 3 minutes. Ambient temperature was 23°C.
