Cellular Glass XP

Maintaining the integrity of pipelines in an Oil&Gas production facility, is essential in a potential fire scenario. Passive fire protection of pipelines is therefore essential in an area with high density of pipes and vales containing highly flammable and explosive hydrocarbons under pressure.

The Benarx Cellular Glass XP pipe insulation is ideally suited for passive fire protection of pipes. The light weight construction of cellular glass combined with intumescent epoxy coating is designed to withstand the toughest hydrocarbon and jet fire scenarios. The prefabricated insulation elements are available as pipe shells, bends, Tees, reducers and conic ends, and can be further modified on site to fit pipe lines from ½ “ to 40 ” in diameter. The modular design saves valuable installation time on site and also allows for allows for fast and easy removal and re-use of the insulation material for inspection of the insulated pipe.

The Benarx Cellular Glass XP patented solution is tested and certified for various fire ratings, aging and anti-static requirements for passive fire protection of vales and flanges in an Oil&Gas facility. Designed to meet NORSOK R-004 Class 5 (fire) and various combination classes (fire and acoustic insulation).
