Since 1953, Bonnell Aluminum has been North-America’s premier manufacturer of custom aluminum extrusions serving the building and construction market and industrial markets. They manufacture mill finish, anodized, painted and thermal barrier assemblies aluminum extrusions. Their press size ranges from 1,550 to 5,500-tons. They produce large diameter extrusions requiring high-quality surface finish up to 16 inches of circle size. Fabricators and distributors use their extruded profiles in various applications: curtain walls, storefronts, light to heavy commercial and institutional windows, walkway covers, interior architectural products, photovoltaic panels, solar collectors, heat sinks for L.E.D. lighting, shower enclosures, hurricane protection products, automotive, light trucks, recreational vehicles and industrial machinery.
The RIDGLOK® panel system will help to reduce the costs for maintenance as well as minimize down time and help reduce the load on heaters to maintain constant operating temperatures.
This RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System was installed on two process tanks for Bonnell Aluminum located in Carthage, TN. These stainless steel tanks were utilized to hold metal at 350° for the aluminum manufacturer.
The 1st tank measured 39’ L x 4’ W x 8’ H and the second tank measured 39’ L x 8’ W x 6.5’ H. The project was completed in the spring of 2015.
The RIDGLOK® Insulated Panel System consisted of 0.024 stucco-embossed aluminum metal jacketing in grey, laminated to 2 layers of 2” polyisocyanurate insulation board with an R-value of 13.1.
RIDGLOK® Insulation Systems MINIMIZE heat gain and REDUCES the load on the chillers or heaters to maintain consistent operating temperatures. Chemical tanks are insulated for OPTIMAL process control. Insulation of storage tanks REDUCES routine maintenance and PREVENTS energy waste and LOWERS fuel costs.
MC&I is the proud manufacturer of the RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System for ground storage tanks. RIDGLOK® insulation systems are engineered to be energy efficient, durable, and cost effective. RIDGLOK® can be used for both heated and cold storage applications without the need for taking tank out of service. This tank insulation system can be applied to all types of tanks, including flat bolted, chimed bolted, glass lined, fiberglass, welded, stainless steel, and concrete. ADVANTAGES: The RIDGLOK® vertical standing seam panel insulation system is a smart and efficient thermal barrier, helping save money on utility costs of heating or cooling the tank. Insulate your tank with RIDGLOK®!
