Thermal Insulation Blankets & Covers
In OEM equipment, irregular shapes like pipes and valves require a unique insulation solution. Insul-Fab can specify and design a thermal insulation blanket or cover to meet your needs in these applications.
Insul-Fab offers OEM exhaust applications with durable high temperature heat insulation require- ments a customized solution. Thermal insulating blankets are made from temperature resistant materials such as silica fabrics, high temperature fiberglass and calcium silicate fiber, silicone and PTFE coated fiberglass fabric, aluminized fabrics, and SS mesh. These sewn or formed thermal insulation blankets and covers incorporate durability, thermal performance, and custom fit into easy to install product for hot and cold applications.
Thermal Insulation Blanket Product Summary
- Excellent heat retention and protection of nearby components
- Attractive and easily installed and removed
- Each application designed for performance and cost optimization
- Consistent quality and blanket performance from order to order
For higher temperature applications (up to about 1800oF), such as exhaust pipes and heaters, Insul-Fab provides removable thermal insulation blankets made from heat tolerant materials.
These can be designed and produced for permanent or serviceable installation on trucks, buses, power generators, heaters, and other repeating volume production equipment. Many of our designs fully enclose the insulation layer to avoid fiber irritation on the assembly line.
For chilled water pipes and low to medium temperature applications (up to about 200oF), we can form thermoplastic polyethylene foam insulation to “fit like a glove” and provide quick and easy installation and removal. In many cases these products replace wrapping pipes and valves with foam tapes, which can be time consuming and inconsistent. This solution is well suited for a routinely repeating volume of consistent hardware to be insulated.

Applications of Thermal Insulation Blankets & Covers
- Enclosed heat protection from exhaust systems in buses, trucks, coaches, and generators
- Condensation protection on chilled water lines, valves, and water heat exchangers
- Heat retention for diesel engine regeneration cycles
- Thermal and acoustical insulation of gas and steam pipes
In some applications, the thermal insulation blanket protects the surrounding areas and materials from extreme heat exposure. In others, the thermal insulation blanket retains the heat required for efficient system performance.
