Stuart Burchill Creates Heat Shield Coatings to Insulate Large Tanks

The long-lasting solution manufacturers have been waiting for is here thanks to Stuart Burchill’s nanotechnology.

Manufacturers face the difficult task of insulating their large tanks and processing equipment. These tanks usually hold fuel oil, process asphalt, or are used in chemical processing. Depending on the nature of the factory, tanks can tower multiple stories high, which means there is plenty of room for heat loss or gain. Not only do manufacturers need to find a way to insulate extremely large and bulky pieces of equipment, but they also need to find materials that will stand up to outside weather conditions.

Nanotechnology expert, Stuart Burchill, explains that older types of insulation, such as fiberglass and mineral wool, are especially difficult to apply. They must be wrapped around the entire tank and then be held in place with an exterior covering, usually made of aluminum. Stuart Burchill notes that these older forms of insulation are extremely time consuming and expensive to apply, not to mention their short lifespan in the event of moisture infiltration. Due to harsh outdoor and factory environments, moisture infiltration is almost impossible to avoid, causing corrosion underneath the insulation (CUI), which can be a multi-billion dollar problem.

To help manufacturers solve this important issue, Stuart Burchill created Heat Shield Thermal Insulation Coatings, sold by Synavax. These spray on coatings are easy to apply to any equipment no matter the size, shape, or location. It offers a high performance thermal insulation that prevents corrosion, lowers energy costs, and increases safety in the workplace.

Stuart Burchill explains that spray on nanotechnology coatings eliminate the need for the laborious application process needed in older forms of insulation, since affixing a second layer around the tank insulation is no longer necessary. Below, Stuart Burchill lists the benefits of coating large tanks with Heat Shield Thermal Insulation Coatings.

Manufacturer Documents 47% Energy Cost Reduction With Stuart Burchill’s Technology

A recent case study shows that Stuart Burchill’s award winning thermal insulation is beyond sustainable.

The Synavax Sustainability Series has produced revolutionary products that are entering factories worldwide, as manufactures strive to be more sustainable while saving money. Stuart Burchill’s patented and award-winning spray on insulation technology saves clients energy, improves factory safety, lowers carbon footprints, and increases equipment lifespans. Synavax has truly made a name for itself as a “one stop shop” for sustainability.

To help put things into perspective for potential customers, a recent study was conducted by Nerteks, a textile manufacturer that got real results by using Stuart Burchill’s Heat Shield High Heat thermal insulation and corrosion control, a spray on coating. Kolorgen Ltd., a Synavax distributor in Turkey, assisted the company with an evaluation of their steam consumption savings.

After three months of recording data, Nerteks revealed they were able to lower energy consumption and energy costs by 47.5%! This was accomplished by insulating heat process equipment using Stuart Burchill’s patented nanotechnology. Large pieces of equipment like yarn dyeing machines are not easy to insulate, however, with this new technology, almost any machine, large, small or bulky, can be coated. Stuart Burchill’s coatings have even been shown to improve the color consistency of dye batches since the insulation is so consistent and reliable.

Here’s how Nerteks found out they scored big:

Energy consumption was calculated by measuring steam with hot water meters. Side by side measurements were made on un-insulated machines as well as with machines that received 10 coats of Stuart Burchill’s Heat Shield High Heat thermal insulation coating. The same meter was used for both machines, to guarantee no differences in the readings. Measurements taken over the course of three months were averaged.

What does that mean for you?

Even if you do not dye yarn, this study applies to all manufacturers! Multiple heat processes all use energy that originates in boilers, runs through steam and condensate piping, and powers the end equipment process. Stuart Burchill’s nanotechnology can be used on tanks, industrial ovens, pasteurizers, boilers, and more! No matter what the use of the equipment, having proper insulation is associated with reduced energy costs.

Stuart Burchill’s coatings can be demonstrated in small batches to prove its effectiveness. Complimentary specifications are available for heat process equipment and building envelope projects simply by request.

Why You Should Upgrade Your Insulation With Stuart Burchill

Keeping old insulation could be costing you money, Stuart Burchill explains how.

Older forms of insulation have been known to dramatically lose their insulating value at a very fast rate, all due to one common issue, moisture infiltration. Once moisture finds its way in, fiberglass and mineral wood insulation can sometimes completely stop working altogether. This can also create more problems like corrosion and host the perfect environment for mold spores.

Nanotechnology expert, Stuart Burchill, shares that 98% of insulation system failures are related to moisture. He often hears clients voice concern when they’re dealing with soaring energy costs and unsafe surface temperatures, hardly a year after brand new insulation was installed. Moisture prevents fiberglass and mineral wood insulation to perform at the same level as when they were new.

So how much moisture does it take to ruin an entire installation of insulation? Stuart Burchill states that scientific studies, reported in the ASHRAE Journal, show that it only takes just 4% moisture infiltration by volume to reduce insulation effectiveness by 71%.

According to “Thermal Conductivity of Wet Insulation” published in the ASHRAE Journal:

“The thermal performance of an insulation material is based in part upon the existence of small air pockets within the structure. When these air pockets are replaced with water, the thermal conductivity of the material increases since water transfers heat more readily than air.”

To help manufacturers combat this issue, Stuart Burchill patenteda range of thermal insulation coatings that are moisture repellant, resistant to chemical splashes and withstand extreme weather conditions. The hydrophobic products also prevent corrosion and protect employees from hot surface temperatures.

Corporations around the world are switching to Stuart Burchill’s spray on insulation coatings, which can be applied to any size and shape of equipment while still hot! These state-of-the-art coatings have a long lasting performance of 10 years or more, providing consistent coverage throughout its entire life span. Moisture won’t build up between the insulation and substrate, which ultimately saves hundreds of thousands of dollars in maintenance and repair costs.

Collectively, humans can make a drastic impact with just a little bit of effort from each person. Plants cool our climate by exchanging CO2 for O2, and by releasing evaporated water through transpiration. In addition to helping our planet, nanotechnology expert, Stuart Burchill, explains added key benefits of having plants around.

Health

Keep respiratory diseases at bay by introducing houseplants into your home. Stuart Burchill explains that plants release approximately 97% of the water they take in back into the air, increasing the humidity of a room. They can also be very easy to care for depending on the species.
Studies conducted at the Agricultural University of Norway have shown that indoor plants reduce dry skin, colds, sore throats, and dry coughs. In addition, researchers at Kansas State University found that hospital patients with plants in their room had less anxiety and fatigue, had lower heart rates and blood pressure, and were released to go home sooner.

Stuart Burchill also notes that plants help people breathe easier by absorbing toxins from the air. People and plants are natural life partners since plants absorb the carbon dioxide humans breathe out, and then release oxygen, the gas humans depend on to survive.

Improved Productivity and Focus

A study by Dr. Virginia Lohr from Washington State University found that common houseplants made people 12% more productive and less stressed. This makes for happier employees, which leads directly to more satisfaction with a job and increased productivity.

Stuart Burchill is also particularly fascinated by a study at The Royal College of Agriculture in Circencester, England which showed that students demonstrate 70% greater attentiveness when taught in rooms containing plants.

Stuart Burchill’s Non-Toxic Insulation Protects Factory Employees

Eco-friendly spray on coating patented by Stuart Burchill changes the standard for insulation quality.

Insulation is an essential part of construction, whether that be for a home, commercial building, or factory. It helps owners cut costs on electricity by improving temperature efficiency and increasing safety measures. Even though this insulation can sometimes be hidden away in walls or hard to reach places, materials should not be filled with toxic chemicals that can cause health issues down the road. Nanotechnology expert, Stuart Burchill, recommends checking the toxicity and flammability of insulation before install to keep your home, office, or factory safe.

Everyone remembers the crisis that occurred when asbestos was widely used in building and pipe insulation. This dangerous chemical caused health issues like cancer, lung tissue scarring, and other serious conditions over time before it was banned in the United States by the EPA. Sadly, this could have been easily avoided through more research and precaution.

Another concern that should be addressed is flammable insulation. Stuart Burchill has seen the devastating effects of fires that are spread more rapidly by poor insulation. A client switched to Mr. Burchill’s technology after a fire started in his large metal storage facility. Spray on foam had been placed along the perimeter and ceiling on his facility to provide insulation, but because it was highly flammable, the fire spread through the building at a much faster pace putting employees at risk and causing significant damage.

Stuart Burchill is passionate about protecting factory employees from dangerous insulation as well as from extremely hot equipment. That’s one of the reasons he created his product line of patented nanotechnology based spray on insulation at INI Worldwide. It is a water-based insulation coating that is both non-toxic and non-flammable. It also protects from corrosion and holds up to outside weather conditions and chemical splashes. Stuart Burchill created a long lasting solution that has no potentially adverse health or safety hazards.

These coatings are also engineered to be environmentally friendly with very low VOC and zero VOC formulations. Stuart Burchill wants to help companies become more sustainable by providing a sustainable product overall. These products provide an extensive list of benefits that make it the sensible choice when it comes to installing new insulation. Stuart Burchill lists the benefits below.

Non-flammable
Non-toxic
Low odor
Low VOC
Water-based
Mold/mildew resistant
Safe for use in food manufacturing facilities (incidental food contact surfaces)

Insulating Factory Tanks Made Easy By Stuart Burchill

Even the largest equipment can be insulated using Stuart Burchill’s patented nanotechnology solution.

There are many key components needed to operate a factory efficiently. Machinery that functions properly is a factory owner’s biggest asset but can also be one of their biggest challenges. Many people don’t realize the necessity of insulation in a factory setting. It helps maintain temperatures inside equipment and protects employees from dangerously hot materials.

Standard forms of insulation are made of materials like fiberglass or mineral wool that have to completely cover equipment and be reinforced to stay in place. These older forms of insulation can be both time consuming and expensive to apply. If that isn’t bad enough, they can’t withstand outdoor conditions. Moisture will cause corrosion under insulation (CUI), leaving factory owners with even bigger problems than they started with.

So what happens when a factory is faced with insulating tanks that are multiple stories high? Insulation must be able to wrap around the entire object, hold up to weather conditions, and resist chemical splashes. Stuart Burchill created the ultimate solution for equipment of all sizes: Heat Shield EPX-H20.

This innovative spray-on insulation uses patented nanotechnology to easily coat objects of any size or shape. Heat Shield EPX-H20 is an economical, long-lasting solution for insulating large tanks that hold things like fuel, asphalt, chemicals, and more. Stuart Burchill’s revolutionary technology can be sprayed on hot equipment, meaning no downtime on the production line.

Nanotechnology Expert, Stuart Burchill, Solves Big Problems With Tiny Invention

Factories and chemical plants face big challenges when it comes to maintaining and operating large equipment. These concerns include protecting employees’ physical well-being, combating high energy costs, and reducing downtime on production lines. All of these problems revolve around big equipment, but can be solved with a very small solution. Stuart Burchill’s patented nanotechnology has been proven to solve the most difficult problems faced in factories today.

Machinery, piping, tanks, boilers, and ovens can become dangerously hot, posing a very big risk for both the workers and the company which is responsible for protecting them. It can be very difficult to tell the difference between equipment that is cool or scorching hot, which means a reliable barrier must be placed around hot surfaces to avoid unnecessary burns.

Applying a barrier seems like an easy task, but in fact, it is quite a big problem to solve. Harsh environments found inside factories quickly degrade regular insulation surrounding large and bulky equipment. Stuart Burchill’s spray on insulation technology is a powerful 2-part water based reactive prepolymer that has excellent splash resistance to chemicals, so it will last longer than traditional methods. It is also resistant to moisture and dust, preventing corrosion of the underlying substrate. Heat Shield EPX-H20 can be applied to any machine, no matter what shape, saving companies the hassle of putting custom cut insulation in hard to reach places.

Stuart Burchill’s Heat Shield EPX-H20 coating can bring surface temperatures as hot as 400F down to the OSHA and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety standards of 140F. This cool touch temperature prevents serious contact burn injuries by allowing employees to touch the surface for about five seconds without suffering irreversible damage. This only takes a few hours, and the equipment can still be hot and operating. Stuart Burchill’s revolutionary nanotechnology prevents down time on production lines, saving factories big money in the long run.

Heat Shield EPX-H20 is changing the insulation standard for both quality and effectiveness in the industrial industry. This groundbreaking spray on insulation is easy to apply, and even protects equipment from sea spray and salt air, a big issue for companies that work along shores or on rigs.

Stuart Burchill’s Thermal Insulation Coating Improves Industrial Workplace Safety

In only two hours, equipment that was once 352 degrees Fahrenheit is now safe to touch with Stuart Burchill’s groundbreaking technology.

Factories around the world struggle to protect their employees from hot equipment and machinery. It can be extremely difficult, for example, to tell which pipes are scalding hot and which are normal and safe to touch.

Both the OSHA and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety standards provide requirements for personnel safety in the workplace. Stuart Burchill’s thermal insulation coating helps clients internationally meet those standards by covering potentially dangerous surfaces.

Equipment that can be too hot to touch includes:

  • Steam pipes
  • Steam valves
  • Boilers
  • Ovens
  • Cookers
  • Processing Tank
  • Curing molds
  • Other heat process equipment

Generally, a “safe touch” surface temperature is recognized as 140F (60C) or below. This guideline is recommended by The Standard Guide for Heated System Surface Conditions that Produce Contact Burn Injuries (ASTM C1055). On average, a person can touch a surface which measures 140F for about five seconds without sustaining irreversible damage from burns.

Forming a reliable barrier around hot surfaces has been challenging with older forms of insulation. Equipment made with fiberglass or mineral wood is exceptionally difficult to wrap around pipe elbows, values, boilers, or ovens. Older insulation technologies are also more vulnerable to moisture and dust infiltration, ultimately reducing their insulating ability.

The Value of a Durable, Long-Lasting Spray-On Insulation for Personnel Safety

Stuart Burchill’s thermal insulation paint is revolutionary in both quality and effectiveness. It’s resistant to moisture and dust and prevents corrosion of the underlying substrate. Stuart Burchill’s coating is also resistant to chemical splashes, meaning it holds up in extreme factory environments.

Spray-on insulation technology instantly conforms to any surface, no matter its size, shape, or location. The coating stays in place and maintains a high level of performance for its long lifespan of a decade or more. Stuart Burchill’s thermal insulation coating  has the ability to bring a surface as hot as 400F down to 140F in just a matter of hours and can be applied while the surface is still hot.

See the Results for Yourself!

It’s one thing to read about an industry changing product, and another to see EPX-H2O demonstrated in person! Check out this video of Stuart Burchill demonstrating temperature reduction due to the application of spray on insulation.
