Many of you know that Aspen is based outside of Boston and, of course, it is a time for celebration as our beloved Boston Red Sox won the World Series just two nights ago. While we’re enjoying this championship and the fanfare that comes with it, what’s truly inspiring to us is how the team’s preparation and planning led to the ultimate win. The Red Sox won because of their game plan. They were prepared to face the toughest of teams, situations, and challenges. That’s what we do every day at Aspen—we help industrial organizations plan and prepare to keep their assets performing optimally with world-class insulation that prevents Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI).
Excitement is burbling at Aspen Aerogels as we get ready to participate in Gastech—the leading exhibition and conference for the global gas, LNG, and energy industries. Gastech will take place from September 17-20, 2018, in Barcelona, Spain. We’d love to see you there at stand # O113—while you're there, don't forget to enter to win our daily raffles. We have some special prizes to give away.
Wondering what we have in store? Here are Four Great Reasons to Visit Aspen Aerogels at Gastech 2018.
Since we know not everyone can attend the event, use this list as a quick cheat sheet on the advantages Cryogel® Z aerogel insulation offers to the LNG and gas processing industries.
What comes to mind when you think of the word versatility? Multipurpose tools are versatile. All-around athletes are versatile. But your industrial insulation?
Something that's versatile can be adapted to many uses—and nothing exemplifies that more than a roll of Pyrogel® or Cryogel® flexible aerogel insulation blankets. With their simple roll format, and single product SKU, Pyrogel or Cryogel can be easily adapted to fit a multitude of forms and to meet a wide range of functions.
Versatile insulation, however, means more than just being useful in diverse applications and in nearly any area of your plant. In fact, the biggest advantage of versatile insulation is that it can save you significant time and expense. Here's how:
During his post-doctoral fellowship at Brookhaven National Laboratory, George Gould, Vice President of Research & Development at Aspen Aerogels, was first introduced to aerogels—nanoporous solids that are extremely important not only for thermal insulation, but also for the future of energy and energy savings.
Since then, George and the team at Aspen have been engineering products for performance, safety, and sustainability—effectively changing the way people think about insulation. As George told us, he truly believes that through advancements in chemistry and engineering, our products can make the world a better place.
It's this "changing the world kind of passion" that makes having a conversation with George so captivating. It's also why we decided to record our most recent sit-down with George so we could share his—and the company's—point of view regarding how aerogel technology innovations are making a difference today.
Fresh off a trip to The Land Down Under, we spent a few minutes with Shane Hebert, senior applications engineer at Aspen Aerogels. Shane was in Australia to conduct installation training for an LNG liquefaction project, something that's a mainstay of his job description. Shane has traveled to over 25 countries, visiting end-users, EPC's, and contractors alike to offer training and support, including the best techniques to properly install our flexible aerogel insulation products.
Shane is an expert, no doubt about it. That's why we asked him to reveal his top tips for anyone new to our material—and for seasoned aerogel veterans alike.
If you catch a member of our research and development team staring out the window in the middle of the day, they aren't just daydreaming. Chances are, they're hard at work finding ways to use transparent aerogel and flexible aerogel blanket insulation to improve the energy efficiency of windows.
Our team, and others, are putting the superior insulating performance of aerogel to work to make more efficient windows, albeit in different ways.
Just because it's winter doesn't mean your fitness routine goes into hibernation.
For many of you, a bike ride or other outdoor activity is still part of your fitness plan. Frost, snow, or cold temperatures aren't going to keep you indoors. However, you also know how important staying warm is—not only to your comfort, but to your fitness goals.
