The RIDGLOK® Vertical Standing Seam Panel Insulation System puts safety first. The system complies with NFPA 22, Section 16.4 requirements for tank insulation as outlined in the ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals.
The panel systems can make use of various types of insulation depending on the operating temperature of the tanks and the needed R-value and moisture absorbency. These insulation types include polyisocyanurate, mineral wool board, fiberglass, cellular glass blocks, pyrogel XT, and cryogel Z. A number of different metals can be used as well.
In particularly cold areas, you can combine RIDGLOK® with additional heater equipment to make it even easier and more affordable to keep tanks at a specific temperature.
Ease of Installation and Maintenance
This system of tank insulation is unlike conventional insulation systems because it is made up of individual panels that require no maintenance. They are also very easy to install and require no welding of shell supports. Each individual panel can be replaced as needed, keeping overall maintenance costs low. Best of all, RIDGLOK® panel insulation systems can last for 25 years or more.
