Mechanical insulation is primarily used to limit heat gain or loss from surfaces operating at temperatures above or below ambient temperature. At Aarc-West we take this one step further and look at the design objectives and considerations when we source our material and determine our installation processes. These can include:
Corrosion Under Insulation
Indoor Air Quality
Service and Location
Using the knowledge and experience of our staff we have been involved in design-build projects in conjunction with a design team as required by our customers.
There are a wide variety of insulation materials, facings, and accessory products available for use on mechanical systems. The list changes continuously as existing products are modified, new products are developed, and other products are phased out. As a Design-Build consultant our task is to select the products or combination of products that will satisfy the design requirements at the lowest total cost over the life of the project.
By consciously spending the time upfront and investing heavily in project start-up we minimize the re-work and service calls and are able to complete our work on-time, on-budget and as specified.
