Armacell Announces New AP Armaflex® Fabricated Covers for Grooved Fittings

Chapel Hill, NC – November 13, 2017 – Armacell, a global innovator in foam technologies and a world leader in the market for flexible mechanical insulation materials, announces the introduction of new large sizes for AP Armaflex Fabricated Covers for grooved fittings. Armaflex Fabricated Covers for Grooved Fittings are the premier prefabricated fittings for Armaflex pipe insulation systems. Together with Armaflex tubes, sheets and rolls they provide complete system integrity, retarding heat gain and controlling condensation drip from chilled water and refrigeration systems. Prefabricated covers offer exceptional time and labor savings in the field compared to creating custom covers on the jobsite.

Customers get all of this with the same great thermal performance, noise absorption and condensation control customers have come to expect from AP Armaflex fittings, but now in sizes that accommodate 8“ and 10“ OD grooved fittings such as Victaulic® or Gruvlock®.

Advantages:

  • Pre-slit 45s, 90s, Tees, and couplings for easy installation
  • Minimum order quantity is only 1 piece
  • Lead time 1-2 weeks — quickest lead time in the industry
  • Wall thicknesses up to 2”, ID up to 10” IPS
  • Labor saving, quick one-step installation
  • Provides total Armaflex system integrity: Thermal efficiency and moisture resistance

Why Use Armaflex Prefabricated Covers?

Creating custom covers for bulky grooved fittings on iron pipe systems can take a long time in the field, however, properly insulating these joints and bends is critical to the overall performance of the mechanical equipment. Without complete system sealing, condensation or corrosion could occur over time. AP Armaflex prefabricated covers, slip right over the fittings quickly and work efficiently. Depending on the skill of the installer, prefabricated pieces can save up to 30 minutes per bend. That adds up to substantial time and labor savings on every installation!
