Extreme cold and heat are withstood by new insulation covers which comprise a combination of silicone Vikotherm S1 and polyurethane Vikotherm P7.
The new designs utilize properties of cast systems which are poured in a liquid form and solidify to create the finished 'jacket'. They withstand very cold temperatures at subsea depths but likewise extreme hot hydrocarbon temperatures.
The new insulation covers manufacturer declares: "We've taken our proven knowledge in designing bespoke insulation systems and combined a silicone inner layer to withstand the high temperatures of hot hydrocarbons. The polyurethane outer layer is lighter in weight than traditional steel."
