Insulation and protection for exterior tank to reduce heat loss and lower surface temperature.
Large paper manufacturer, Weyerhaeuser, was looking for a way to effectively insulate an outdoor liquor tank while also reducing surface temperature and providing protection from corrosion and weathering.
Heat Shield™ Translucent PT was recommended as a durable exterior insulation and protective coating. They applied six coats to reduce the exterior temperature from approximately 200F down to approximately 138F, while also providing corrosion resistance and an insulation solution that would stand up to years of weathering. Their next project for this customer will be another exterior tank application to reduce exterior surface temperature from approximately 225F to approximately 120F.
Heat Shield™ Translucent PT coating provided the perfect outdoor insulation for the client’s black liquor tank. It both prevented corrosion and insulated to reduce heat loss. No exterior cladding was needed.
