Armacell’s ArmaFlex® insulation helps keep chilled water systems icy cold at a brand new 1 million sq ft solar panel manufacturing facility.
Large scale building construction ignites the need for effective installation planning and design ingenuity. A massive mechanical room with 98 air handling units, 6 chillers and 18 pumps with supporting pipes needed efficient insulation at a new facility within a tight time crunch. Insulation contractors needed planning assistance and training to get the best possible fit on such a large installation.
Steve Johnson, Applications and Training Manager at Armacell, performed AQIP training and supported contractors through insulation pattern fabrication creation which saved installation time and ensured the best possible fit resulting in a clean, professional install.
Resourcefulness and quality were the main focus for Superior Industrial Insulation Superintendent, Scott Leonard. “I prefer ArmaFlex® products over the competitors because of its usability. It doesn’t dull our knives and it flattens out easier, even though it comes in roll form.”
Efficiency was another focus, especially for Paul Justen, Operations Manager at Superior Industrial Insulation. Justen had the challenge of insulating a hefty mechanical system and relied on Armacell’s Applications and Training Manager, Steve Johnson, to provide AQIP training to new apprentices. The support of Armacell through training and development resulted in the contracting teams creating templates which allowed the installers to fabricate large sections of ArmaFlex insulation into piece kits, saving many hours of install time.
