About Fibertex 450 Industrial Rockwool
Bradford Fibertex 450 is a general purpose industrial insulation for use on process equipment, vessels, tanks and reactors. It is a medium duty thermal and acoustic insulation suitable for continuous operation up to 450oC.
Bradford Fibertex 450 Rockwool is a robust medium density insulation product with excellent insulation and fire resistance properties. It is manufactured by spinning a molten mixture of natural rock and recycled products into fine wool like fibres which are bonded together using a thermosetting resin. The product can be identified by its light brown appearance.
Fibertex 450 is designed for use in applications where operating temperatures do not exceed 450C. It is ideal for use in process temperature control, energy conservation, condensation prevention, acoustic absorption treatment and personnel protection from plant and equipment. Typical applications include:
- heat exchangers
- large diameter piping
Bradford Fibertex 450 is easily installed by impaling the batts or blankets on weld pins and securing with speed clips. The un-faced surface of the Rockwool Batt or Blanket is to be applied to the hot surface to be insulated.
On small vessels the insulation may be simply retained by wire mesh or metal bands. For acoustic panel applications ensure the cavity dimension does not exceed the product thickness.
