Comfort Insulation

The requirements of the indoor climate and comfort have become more stringent during the recent years. The insulation constitutes an important factor of this, as it ensures obtaining the correct temperature as comfort insulation. The great advantage of the Rockwool products is that the high level of thermal insulation can be combined with excellent noise reduction capabilities and often also fire protection constructions will act as thermal comfort insulation. All ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore products will fulfil the IMO rules of noncombustibility and low flame spread and besides this the products have excellent water repellent properties which are also important as comfort insulation often is placed directly up against the outer construction with changing temperatures. Floating Floors To obtain a good comfort a good noise reduction is required between the individual decks. To prevent noise particularly impact sound and structure borne noise from travelling from one cabin to another you must use an insulation solution which has the necessary rigidity, elasticity and noise reduction/absorption. For this purpose ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore has developed and for many years marketed the Rockwool Marine Slab 140 with an excellent track record. This product is widely used by dedicated floating floor companies as the core material, combined with different types of load spreading top layers and base layers. These solutions are extensively used on cruise liners where stringent requirements are made in order for people to be able to enjoy their cruise without being bothered by noise. At the same time many of these floating floor constructions are made as approved A-60 Deck Fire Protection Solutions. ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore also supplies solutions for floating floor, approved for A-60 Deck Fire Protection. Please see our technical guideline 10.20. for construction built-up.

Panels Throughout the accommodation areas of a vessel or living quarter, it is required to have B-Class fire restriction zones and fire protection between each cabin. And at the same time it is needed to have comfort and noise insulation between each cabin, towards public areas etc. For this purpose the Rockwool Marine Slab range of products has proven to be highly successful. ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore has together with the customers developed a great number of special products possessing high compressive and delaminating strength as well as great fire resistance, which has been approved as non-combustible according to latest IMO regulations. The panel and door manufacturers here-by have an outstanding core material for the fabrication of sandwich constructions.

Sound Solutions Today an increasing focus on noise reduction is present, which extents far beyond the rules of national marine authorities and IMO, such as res A.468(XII). The technical aspects in this area are quite complex and often requires specialist companies to perform sound design work, calculations and final onboard measurements. Rockwool products have excellent properties as; sound absorbers, stopping structural borne noise (i.e. with floating floor and bulkhead constructions) and as noise reduction by panels. ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore is assisting in the battle against noise.

Please see our web site www.rockwool-marine.com for dedicated specialist information and measuring results.

A large range of basic product measurements has been performed, to create the necessary data for the further calculations. A series of typical constructions have also been tested for the noise reduction capabilities.

Technical Insulation

Pipe Insulation Pipe insulation is rarely visible, but often decisive for the comfort and safety on board. The safety rules of SOLAS (Chp II-2) regarding hot surfaces in engine rooms have to be fulfilled. Pipe insulation is also necessary to reduce the surface temperature on the pipes so that people working in the vicinity are not injured by contact with hot pipes. To prevent corrosion and blockage of pipes for heavy oil, cargo lines for product tankers etc. it can further more be decisive to avoid too great a heat loss from the pipes. ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore has a wide selection of marine approved solutions for pipe insulation, which satisfy all these requirements, for large pipes as well as small pipes. Ridged pipe sections are available both with and without reinforced aluminium foil covering. Also available is the Universal Pipe Section; a lower density and very flexible pipe section, which ensures a quick and effective installation without cutting, even when doing >90 degrees elbows. The Rockwool Pipe Sections are especially suitable for ambient to very high temperatures, but can also be utilised for chilled medias. Please see the web site where a calculation application can be downloaded, to determine heat loss, surface temperatures, and required thicknesses.

Air Ducts Today, many requirements are made on air ducts. Most important is that the comfort on board the vessels or platform living quarters is considered and that no compromises are made to the demands on fire safety. In connection with ventilation of cabins and other rooms it must furthermore be ensured that no condensation is formed and that the required temperature is maintained all the time. This is obtained by using one of the ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore products. Technical Installations For a large range of technical equipment onboard a vessel or offshore installation, there will be requirements for insulation. This will often be a combination of thermal control, noise reduction and fire safety. For these purposes ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore will be able to supply a perfect solution. Also for odd size and shape installations.

Others

Facings There are many reasons for choosing insulation products with facings. It is generally done to obtain a vapour barrier, which prevents formation of condensation on the cold side of a construction. ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore can for this purpose offer a number of products faced with a reinforced alu foil, which ensures a strong surface. In addition to this, ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore can often provide products with a glass fabric, which often provides a cheaper and lighter construction. These products are typically used for car decks, airconditioning, plants, engine rooms, lift sharfts or the like. Accessories Accessories for the installation work are also available from ROCKWOOL Marine & Offshore. The product range covers i.e. Copper coated mild steel pins. Stainless steel pins. Available also with alu tip. Spring washers, plain or with white cap. Stainless steel washers, plain or with white cap. Rockwool knives. Aluminium tape. Glass Fabric , white 210 gr/m2.

Aquaduct - Thermal Insulation solutions for Sub-Sea Pipeline

ROCKWOOLs unique product properties within fire resistance, water and moisture repellent, sound reduction and thermal conductivity, which traditionally have been used e.g. within the marine and offshore sector, can now with benefit be used for thermal insulation of Sub-Sea Pipelines. The increased efficiency improvement when drilling for oil and use of the worlds oil reserves mean that we operate on deeper ocean depths with increasing temperatures of the crude oil as a consequence. Precisely here, the combination of ROCKWOOLs capability to resist high temperatures and good insulating qualities appears. Aquaduct has already been used successfully in Sub-Sea projects world wide for several years. We offer individual and customised solutions to match the specific conditions and needs: Pipe-in-pipe system, Pipe Bundles, Field Joints and Bespoke solution. Advantages  Resistant to high temperatures  Resilient; good recovery following deformation  Free from HFCs and other glowing gases  Unaffected by welding of field joints Easy to handle and install  Reliable performance; thermal conductivity cannot degrade due to loss of entrapped gas  Recyclable

Product Range
Aquaduct Insulation system incorporate a number of different Rockwool products which can be tailor made for the individual project and purpose. Some of the products are described below: Aquaduct CL are special patented Rockwool products where the vertical direction of the fibres provides an excellent compression resistance at low thicknesses (down to 10 mm thickness). The fibres are bonded to a reinforced aluminium foil outer facing and the product can be supplied with very low tolerances. In most cases Aquaduct CL will be the optimal choice for Pipe in Pipe solutions. Aquaduct PSM is a rigid Rockwool slab having a glass scrim or reinforced aluminium foil facing bonded to one side and triangular grooves in the other. The grooves allow the slab to wrap around and closely fit specified large diametres.

Aquaduct Sections are rigid pre-formed circular units of Rockwool insulation supplied with or without an outer covering. Aquaduct sections are available in almost any combination of diameter, thickness and length and can be adapted to individual needs and specifications. Aquaduct Sections are the optimal choice for bigger sizes of pipe.

Aquaduct Bevelled Lags are trapezoidal strips of Rockwool rigid slab designed to contour specified large diametres. The lags can be supplied loose or bonded to a reinforced foil or metal outer sheet. The use of Aquaduct Bevelled Lags offers the designer the facility to incorporate inset strips of varying thicknesses.

Aquaduct Loose Fill is a specially graded, granular insulation designed to in-fill around pipe bundles and to fully fill irregular voids. Aquaduct Loose Fill can be installed at a wide range of densities, either by hand packing or by use of specially designed blowing equipment.
