The Answers

  1. SUM LTD removable insulation covers are a durable and inexpensive solution in many industrial insulating environments. SUM LTD removable insulation covers provide maximum protection from the elements with minimal maintenance cost. Because they are reusable, there is no need to install new and expensive hard insulation. SUM LTD removable insulation covers are made to exact specifications and are guaranteed to fit every time.
  2. SUM LTD removable insulation covers provide freeze protection, reduce heat loss, increase efficiency, provide personnel protection and are easily removable on all regularly maintained equipment.
  3. Depending on your application you should see a return on investment within 1 year. SUM LTD removable insulation covers are durable, last for years and do not need to be replaced even with regularly scheduled equipment maintenance.
  4. SUM LTD removable insulation covers are made of tough materials including silicone, Teflon and Tester and are sewn with stainless steel threads and cords for extra durability. SUM LTD removable insulation covers installed in highly contaminated areas have withstood chemical spills, ultraviolet radiation, super high heat and extremely low temperatures. Naturally, the life of a cover is dependent on its operational environment and frequency of service.
  5. Most small orders of SUM LTD removable insulation covers are filled within 3 weeks of P.O. reception. Some larger contracts are dealt with on a case by case basis. A constant flow of manufactured blankets to the customer's destination of choice is also an option.
  6. Yes. SUM LTD removable insulation covers are purpose built pieces that fit their application flawlessly both dimensionally and chemically. In sour gas plants, Teflon coated fiberglass cloth is used to limit the cover's reactivity to various chemical agents. For further details, please consult the materials page and the chemical resistance chart for Teflon and silicone.
  7. SUM LTD guarantees that all covers will fit their designated equipment and will function in the designated environmental settings. We are not responsible for inadequate or inappropriate information provided about operating temperatures and/or the operating environment.
  8. SUM LTD removable insulation covers have several advantages over hard insulation. The primary advantage is in the area of high maintenance equipment where thermal insulation must be installed and removed on a regular basis. Hard insulation requires that a qualified insulator removes the insulation before maintenance and then installs completely new insulation. This process can take time and cost thousands of dollars over the life time of the equipment. Removable insulation covers on the other hand require no special training to remove or install and because they are reusable, no extra costs of re-insulating the equipment are necessary.
  9. No, there are no hazardous materials used in the production of SUM LTD removable insulation covers. The actual insulating properties are provided by BGF Mat, a needled e-glass material that is an irritant similar to dust but does not have any hazardous chemical properties.
  10. There is no special training required to install SUM LTD removable insulation covers. Common sense and moderate spatial coordination are the best guides to successful installation.
