Used for pipes and process equipment, the potential of mechanical insulation to play a significant role in reducing energy intensity is immense, but it is often specified incorrectly or, more frequently, not adequately maintained. A mechanical insulation energy appraisal was conducted on 25 facilities surrounding Helena, Montana to determine energy-, cost-, and emission-reduction opportunities available through repair, replacement, and maintenance of systems.
