Asphalt Insulation Project – Stamford, Connecticut

This is a typical insulation project for our company – a hot mix asphalt plant project in Stamford, Connecticut, where we are contracted to insulate several hundred feet of asphalt line, and hot oil supply & return lines.

Below are several short videos that show what we have insulated at this facility to improve energy efficiency and maintain hot oil temperatures.

We specialize in “hard to insulate” areas of a plant, making sure that everything that is hot gets insulated.

90-degree Flange Elbow with Elbow Valve

Many insulation companies fail to insulate flanges 90-degrees, flange valves, and hot oil transfer lines. They are hard to insulate but there is a tremendous amount of heat loss if these are left without insulation.

4-inch Pump Insulated for Energy Savings

Insulating a 4-inch pump is difficult, and time-consuming. But, it is well worth the effort in improving the energy efficiency of an asphalt plant.

Uninsulated Flanged 90-degree Elbow

There is significant heat loss in these difficult to insulate 90-degree elbows – likely $100 per elbow per year.
