Recently, we provided Foamglas® pipe supports to a local chemical plant. We offer Foamglas® pipe supports for hot, cold and dual-temperature applications.

Some of the benefits of Foamglas® insulation include:

  • Resistant to water in both liquid and vapor forms 
  • Noncorrosive 
  • Noncombustible/nonabsorbent of combustible liquids 
  • Resistant to most industrial reagents 
  • Dimensionally stable under a variety of temperature and humidity conditions 
  • Resistant to vermin, microbes and mold 
  • Fiber, CFC and HCFC free

The range of temperatures that these supports can withstand is from -450 deg F to 900 deg F. Our dual-temperature supports are an ideal solution when you require an insulated pipe support to function at both high and low temperatures. These particular pipe supports are made primarily of either Foamglas® insulation or Pyrogel insulation. They are reinforced by structural insulating inserts that support the load on the pipe.
