Insulation Jackets

Insulation Jackets


Insulated jackets are designed for controlling temperature of its contents, by using a cooling or heating “jacket” around the vessel through which a cooling or heating fluid is circulated.¬† Jackets can be applied to the entire surface of a vessel or just a portion of it. ¬†They can also be divided into zones, to divide the flow of the heating or cooling medium.

Advantages include: ability to direct flow to certain portions of the jacket, such as only the bottom head when minimal heating or cooling is needed and the entire jacket when maximum heating or cooling is required; ability to provide a higher volume of flow overall (zones are piped in parallel) because the pressure drop through a zone is lower than if the entire jacket is a single zone.

Jacketed vessels can be employed as chemical reactors (to remove the elevated heat of reaction) or to reduce the viscosity of high viscous fluids (such as tar).
