Foam Insulation adheres well to storage tanks, and with an R-value of 6.2 is the best solution to reduce the energy required to heat or cool storage tanks.
Storage Tank Insulation
Spray foam insulation is ideally suited to insulating storage tanks, pressure vessels, double walled tanks, and welded tanks. Spray foam insulation adheres to the surface of the tank, fills any cracks or seams and creates a weather-tight insulating layer between the elements and the storage tank. An added benefit of Spray Foam insulation is that it actually increases the structural integrity of any structure—including storage tanks. With an R-Value of 6.2, spray foam represents the best performing solution to slash energy costs associated with the heating or cooling of the storage tank.
ASI uses the The FOAM-LOK™ Commercial Insulation System for Tank Insulation. The FOAM-LOK™ FL-2000 Wall Insulation is a Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation and Air Barrier System that has become the industry standard for providing the ultimate building envelope performance. Safe, eco-friendly and energy efficient, LaPolla's FL-2000 Wall Insulation is a breakthrough technology in moisture and thermal management, which also makes it perfect for the insulation of storage tanks, pressure vessels, double walled tanks, and welded tanks.
FL-2000 Wall Insulation is a two component system that, when installed following application guidelines, adheres tenaciously to the surface of the storage tank and minimizes air leakage for increased energy efficiency. FL-2000 Spray Foam Insulation delivers positive proven results when applied to commercial buildings, storage warehouses, tanks, pipelines and other structures. With the elimination of air infiltration, HVAC equipment can be downsized bringing immediate dollar-savings. FL-2000 Wall Insulation also helps control moisture condensation, it won't shrink or settle, and it's fire and insect-resistant with an ASTM E-84 Class I rating at 4".
