Thermal Break Solutions for 2018

From all of us at Rilco Manufacturing, we would like to extend to you our best wishes for a happy holiday season and our sincere thanks for your loyalty and goodwill throughout the year.

Thank you for entrusting us with your business in 2017. We look forward to a bright 2018 and continuing our partnership by providing you with our optimum services and the finest pipe supports and fabricated steel.

We recently shipped several isolation blocks to be utilized in a low temperature application. The permali isolation blocks shown below include a steel base plate. Our isolation blocks provide a thermal break. They are designed to meet load requirements while simultaneously thermally isolating the piping system or ensuring that the structure does not fall below its design temperature.

Permali Isolation Blocks Being Prepared for Shipping

We provide a wide range of materials including polyurethane, Micarta GE, Micarta G-10, Micarta G-10CR (both foreign and domestic), and permali for low temperature applications. For high temperature requirements, we offer materials such as Super Firetemp® and Marinite. See examples of permali, Micarta G-10 and polyurethane isolation blocks below.

Assorted Isolation Blocks

The insulation for these supports can range in thickness between 0.5" to 8" (13 mm - 200 mm). The insulation can be utilized in a variety of configurations between the process piping and the supporting steel.

Do you see a need for isolation blocks on your upcoming projects? Please let me know how I can help you out with your pipe support and fabrication needs in 2018.
