Client: Name witheld
Application: Heat exchanger
Location: Brookville, IL
Coating Used: Mascoat Industrial-DTI
Thickness: 160 mils (4 mm)
Reason for Application: Personnel protection & energy retention
Even though this sweetener manufacturer has an enclosed facility, there are still many ways for moisture to get under the insulation causing CUI just like an outdoor manufacturing facility. Washing down the equipment and trapped humidity can cause CUI in an indoor facility.
The #12 heat exchanger operates at 350°F (177°C) and needed Mascoat to provide personnel protection. Protecting workers is even more important in an area as tightly congested as this was. Another reason that Mascoat was used is that the facility needed a product that was NSF approved for their process.
Energy retention was another need with the insulation for their process. The facility decided to use 160 mils (4 mm) of Mascoat to get all of the problems solved. To help with their process, the Mascoat Industrial-DTI was applied while in operation to the 350°F (177°C)
The client has been very satisfied with the results.
