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).
Would you recognize a steam vault if you walked over one?
If you're like most people, you’re probably not aware that steam vaults exist—until the vault providing process steam or heat to your building requires maintenance.
Network operators devote a significant amount of time and energy to keeping their steam systems running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. If you never notice a steam vault, they've done their job. We have the same objective. If a steam vault insulated with Pyrogel® XTE aerogel blankets goes unnoticed, it means our insulation is doing its job.
So, how can you tell if steam vault insulation is or isn't working? There's a telltale sign to look for next time you're out and about, and it's as green as the grass you walk on.
Whether in a university, municipality, hospital or factory complex, district energy steam network operators are united in a constant effort to improve system quality and reliability to consistently provide the capacity to meet customer demands.
Duke University is no exception.
It seems fitting that we exhibited at NACE Corrosion 2017 in New Orleans, a city that's faced so many challenges due to water—one of the key ingredients to the corrosion process. While corrosion and the prevention of it is a major topic we also recognize the value of resiliency and using Pyrogel aerogel blanket insulation to "keep it dry."
