2.6 Industrial Systems

Conditions exist in industrial installations such as power plants, chemical plants, petroleum refineries, steel, pulp and paper mills, meat packing plants, food, soap, and cosmetic process plants, marine work, etc., which require that the insulation systems designer be involved in the project during the design phase. The following table provides an overview of some of the considerations in design and application for industrial systems. However, for detailed information on mechanical insulation for industrial systems, refer to the TIAC Best Practices Guide and Process Industry Practices resources referenced earlier.
