from Solar Power.
Weatherproof, UV-resistant and heat-resistant up to 150° C - high temperature EPDM foams provide reliable insulation in solar applications. Thanks to their flexibility, they also insulate lines which are difficult to access and assure constant solar yields.
Thermal Solar Systems
Solar systems are gaining increasing importance as an alternative energy source - especially in Europe. The most solar power systems worldwide are produced here. In order to ensure that they provide continuously high yields, they should be protected from energy losses. Special pipe insulation has proven to be up to the elevated demands of solar applications.
Demands on solar thermal insulation
Insulation must be even more optimised for solar thermal applications than anywhere else. Since the pipelines are partially exposed to the open air, they are subjected to various weather influences. If the insulation becomes soaked, its conductivity also increases, wherein its thermal performance capacity is reduced. Since moisture can form on its exterior, an additional covering in the outside area alone is often insufficient. Insulation based on synthetic rubber is non-hygroscopic, thanks to its closed-cell structure. It maintains a thermal conductivity equilibrium and retains its insulating capacity even under the influence of moisture.
