Imerys provides mobile perlite evacuation, expansion and installation services for cryogenic insulation. With mobile services, perlite ore mines and fixed expansion plants around the world, Imerys offers full service cryogenic insulation solutions to customers.
Liquefied gases having boiling points as low as -452°F (-269°C) have created a demand for storage facilities capable of economically reducing evaporation losses. Perlite, widely used for insulation because of its low thermal conductivity, cost, ease of handling, nonflammability and low moisture retention, performs well in insulating cryogenic and low temperature storage tanks, air separation units, cold boxes, nitrogen, oxygen, argon and LNG storage facilities, and in food processing.
Imerys provides mobile, customized solutions for perlite evacuation, expansion and installation, and high quality expanded perlite. Imerys also provides mineral wool installation and industrial pipe insulation for cryogenic services.
