Cryogenic Insulation

It takes a spe­cial kind of ex­pert to con­trol the freez­ing tem­per­at­ures of minus 163°C ne­ces­sary to handle, store and sup­ply li­que­fied nat­ural gas (LNG). KAEFER has over 40 years of ex­per­i­ence in LNG and some say that those who work with this quite lit­er­ally have the coolest job in the com­pany.

From high-per­form­ance in­su­la­tion at gas plants and pipelines to stor­age and trans­port­a­tion tanks, we provide a wide range of ser­vices and solu­tions for the whole gas hand­ling chain. In fact, we have two spe­cial­ised di­vi­sions ded­ic­ated to LNG – our Cor­por­ate Com­pet­ence Cen­ter Li­que­fied Gases (CCCL) and the LNG Solu­tions Cen­ter. Both are staffed with ex­perts who are spe­cial­ists in ad­apt­ing to chal­len­ging scen­arios and be­spoke ap­plic­a­tions where mech­an­ical and thermal ten­sions are high.

The KAEFER LNG Solu­tions Cen­ter fo­cuses on de­liv­er­ing soph­ist­ic­ated and in­tel­li­gent solu­tions and ser­vices to ma­jor LNG pro­jects. For ex­ample, we have de­veloped a pre-in­su­la­tion pro­cess for pipes, which is mod­u­lar and flex­ible, al­low­ing pipes to be in­su­lated ef­fi­ciently be­fore they are in­stalled on site. This means they are not sub­ject to en­vir­on­mental vari­ables and the pro­cess saves time and money by en­sur­ing high qual­ity and lower levels of man­power and scaf­fold­ing. Fur­ther­more, our sys­tem is highly mo­bile and can be set up in close prox­im­ity to large-scale pro­jects around the world – this shortens transit times and lowers costs as well.

Our CCCL fo­cuses on gas car­ri­ers and high-level en­gin­eer­ing, re­search and pro­cess de­vel­op­ment. Our joint ven­ture with the Broad­way Group in Shang­hai is com­bin­ing the know-how in in­su­la­tion solu­tions of CCCL and the local mar­ket strength of Broad­way to fo­cus mainly on China. All products are man­u­fac­tured loc­ally to make the most of the op­por­tun­it­ies in this grow­ing in­dustry.
