Cold weather covers
Floating modular insulation cover retains heat in a system when the ambient temperature falls below the liquid temperature.
Processes where stored water has to be kept above ambient temperature are very expensive to maintain when not properly insulated. In the oil industry, fracking water is generally heated to about 70°F before it is injected down the wellhead. The tanks that holds these warm waters are heated all winter long to maintain the desired temperature and to keep the water from freezing. Adding a floating cover will reduce heat loss, reduce evaporation and drastically decrease heating cost.
In a wastewater treatment plant, the retained heat assists with the biological degradation of waste materials and minimize thermal shock of effluents when added to a lagoon. Bacterial activity is directly proportional to water temperature, which directly affect the wastwater sewage plant overall efficiency.
A highly effective insulation floating cover will limit heat loss and considerably reduce heating cost. The Hexprotect MAX R cover can also be used for shielding waste water and effluent lagoons from sunlight and prevent algae blooms. Furthermore, it will reduce odors by reducing evaporation of volatile compounds from lagoons and open tanks.
Covering a lagoon has many added benefits besides reducing heat loss.
