PFP Jackets:

Advanced Insulation designs, manufactures and installs ContraFlex® Passive Fire Protection (PFP) jackets to protect assets, maintain structural integrity and safeguard personnel working in challenging environments.

Thermal Insulation:

Advanced Insulation have a dedicated team of surveyors qualified to measure dimensional and heat loss information from valves, flanges and other plant room equipment.

This information can be fed back to a unique heat loss survey program in order to calculate the expected savings in both CO2 and energy costs.

High Temperature Insulation:

ContraFlex® High Temperature Insulation jackets are utilised where application operating temperatures are anywhere up to 1,100°C.

Hot surfaces dissipate heat quickly, so it is important to maintain equipment temperatures, as well as protect personnel from potentially harmful burns.

Acoustic Insulation:

ContraFlex® Acoustic insulation jackets are available where sound reduction is required to improve site working conditions, by reducing noise and vibration across structures.

Trace Heating:

ContraFlex® Trace Heating jackets provide a solution for flow assurance, to prevent the formation of waxes or crystallisation.

ContraFlex® Trace Heating jackets are fitted with a trace-heated cable and a thermostat or regulator for quick and easy removal and re-installation.
