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.
