(businesspress24) - Frenzelitred temperature limits for exhaust pipes are not exceeded, thereby preventing any media that escapes, such as diesel fuel, oil or hydraulic fluids from igniting on hot surfaces in the event of leakage.
The globally binding SOLAS220 (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) regulation has been in force for the thermal insulation of engines on large container and cargo ships as well as cruise liners since 2014. The convention states that engine room surfaces must not exceed 220 degrees Celsius to reduce the risk of any escaping liquids from igniting. Many diesel-driven engines will need to be retrofitted and thermally insulated in order to meet these requirements.
Insulation boards that interlock precisely based on CAD specifications
Frenzelit to convert it into a board that can be precisely machined to size. Until now, only somewhat adaptable acoustic pillows were used for thermally insulating engine room heat zones. But these pillows could never be optimally adapted, they formed cavities inside the engine housing and were unable to withnzelit uses in shipbuilding meet Marine Equipment Directive 2014/90/EU Module D guidelines.
Long fibers for high mechanical resistance
The new technical solution underwent 3,000 hours of continuous customer-side testing without incurring any damage. The extreme vibration resistance comes from the length of the insulation board fibers .
