Entire spectrum of insulation
Insulation is everywhere. Insulation keeps hot things hot and cold things cold. But things really start to get interesting when we consider the challenges in developing, creating and fitting insulation for industrial and high-tech applications. That’s KAEFER’s speciality. From thermal and cryogenic insulation to noise protection and acoustic insulation as well as insulation mattresses and nuclear cassettes – KAEFER provides innovative solutions, products and services that protect, conserve and ensure the performance and function of modern industry.
We have the know-how, experience and flexibility to take on complex, large-scale projects that need to be completed within strict timeframes. By employing lean principles, we ensure that everything is at the right time and at the right place. This allows us to be extremely flexible when it comes to reacting to challenges quickly.
We develop and produce a range of proprietary products and systems to ensure that our insulation solutions make the most of our technical skills, specialised knowledge and understanding of every aspect of how insulation works. We have the expertise to help you achieve even the most ambitious goals and make even the biggest and most complex projects reality.
Thermal insulation is simple - it’s about keeping hot things hot and cold things cold, conserving energy in the process. And in times of increased environmental pressures and energy costs, thermal insulation is more important than ever.
Areas of application / hot insulation
- Chemical industry
- Food processing
- Wood and paper industries
- Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC)
- Natural gas storage tanks
- Biomass plants
- Environmental technology
Areas of application / cold insulation
- LNG and ethylene plants
- Cryogenic storage
- Gas liquefaction plants
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.
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.
We have two specialised divisions dedicated to LNG – our Corporate Competence Center Liquefied Gases (CCCL) and the LNG Solutions Center.
Noise protection & Acoustics
Noise is unhealthy not just for people, but also for structures as a result of vibration. KAEFER offers innovative and tailored solutions to deal with noise effectively and efficiently. It starts with measurement - our engineers analyse noise levels and origins with state-of-the-art equipment and develop noise protection measures that are tailored exactly and individually to each facility or building. We can offer high-quality, customised sound absorbers, acoustic enclosures, acoustic screens as well as pipe and vessel insulation combined with thermal requirements to our clients.
