Whether the application is for heat gain to a system (Refrigeration or Cryogenic in LNG plants), heat loss from a system (Hot Processes), frost protection or Acoustic – Hertel have the knowledge and experience to provide a cost effective solution.
Next to raw materials, energy represents the largest single cost element of most manufacturing processes.
Hertel recognise thermal insulation as a valuable investment and a tremendous asset to energy conservation and process efficiency. Properly maintained insulation contributes significantly to a plant’s operating bottom line, in turn helping to reduce CO2 emissions, carbon footprint and operating costs.
An average sized plant has around:
- 60 miles of insulated pipe work
- The equivalent of 7 football fields of insulated equipment
- Between 10% & 19% of damaged/ missing insulation
- Many historically un-insulated hot (useful energy) processes.
Therefore, significant untapped energy saving potential exists. Quantifying this damaged or missing insulation and calculating the associated energy loss is a unique service offered by Hertel.
Since the introduction of this service Hertel have identified substantial energy savings for our customers resulting in reduced operating costs long-term, reduced CO2 emissions, reduced carbon footprint, reduced climate change levy burdens and improved environmental performance.
European Industrial Insulation Foundation (EiiF)
Hertel is a founding partner of the European Industrial Insulation Foundation (EiiF), a non-profit foundation located in Geneva, Switzerland.
The initiative is made up of Europe’s leading insulation companies to promote the benefits of sustainability and profitability of industrial insulation, not just to plant operators but also to raise awareness amongst investors and government organisations, about the contribution industrial insulation makes to energy efficiency and CO2 reduction, while delivering a typical payback time of just one or two years.
