Home » Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI)
Achieve maximum thermal energy efficiency and control in fluid transfer applications with Insulon vacuum jacketed hose with MLI. Insulon hoses with MLI target all three types of heat transfer to minimize thermal energy transfer to or from the fluid being transported. Compatible with cryogenic fluids including liquid nitrogen, hydrogen, and others; Compatible with high temperature fluids including steam, exhaust, and specialty gases.
Multi-layer insulation (MLI) reduces radiation heat transfer by reflecting it back towards the source. In vacuum jacketed hoses, MLI is used to maximize thermal performance. Vacuum barriers alone minimizes convection and conduction; the addition of MLI within the vacuum annulus reduces radiation to target all three types of heat transfer.
For decades, vacuum jacketed hoses have been relied upon in extreme cold (cryogenic) applications. Today, high temperature applications can achieve the same ultra-high performance insulation with Insulon hose. Operates in applications from -270 to 900 C.
Insulon hoses typically have a smaller diameter than other vacuum jacketed hoses. The MLI inside Insulon hoses is engineered with proprietary, high density technology for maximum thermal efficiency in sleek, compact, ergonomic packaging.
The internal and external surfaces of Insulon hoses are 316L stainless steel. Compatible with cleanroom environments. ASTM G93 cleanliness up to Level A upon request.How Insulon hoses are different from other vacuum jacketed hoses →
