Floating insulated covers: evaporation and heat loss reduction

Many industrial applications require stored liquid to remain warm. In waste water treatment, biological degradation of waste materials is proportional to the water temperature. During cold periods when the ambient temperature falls under the lagoon temperature, retaining the heat helps meet the effluent discharge limits.

Other industrial processes require keeping large amounts of stored liquid above ambient temperature. The cost of maintaining the liquid warm in an open tank or pond can be very high.

The Hexprotect MAX R cover provides an economical way to retain heat, reduce odor and shield the effluent from sunlight. The insulation part of the tile is made of closed cell polyurethane foam and has an insulated value of R 17. The modular nature of the cover makes installation, removal, and maintenance an easy task.

Installation is easy and does not require construction or infrastructure to build and maintain. The U.V. and chemical resistant HDPE Hexprotect tiles withstand sun, rain, ice, snow and wind for an effective service life of over 20 years.

Added advantages of installing an insulated floating cover

Covering a lagoon has many added benefits besides reducing heat loss.

  • Reduction of liquid loss through evaporation by up to 95%.
  • Reduced chemical consumption.
  • Heating costs reduced by up to 90%.
  • Odor containment. Less exposed surface area results in less odor emission..
  • Camouflage pond basins from waterfowl / bird deterrent
  • Improved working environments.
  • Reduces sunlight penetration, precluding growth of algae and clogging weeds.
  • Reduce ice formation

Modular covers advantages versus solid covers

All our covers offer substantial advantage over solid covers:

  • Less Expensive
  • Each tile is made of long lasting, UV resistant, high quality HDPE
  • Allow movement of equipment through liquid. Unlimited and easy access to the liquid.
  • Adjust to the variation of the liquid level by spreading & stacking
  • Naturally Self arrange and interlock on the liquid surface
  • Virtually maintenance free
  • Cannot tear like conventional solid cover
  • Aeration can be installed underneath
  • Reduce chemical consumption.
  • Unaffected by rain water
  • No vegetation growth on top.
  • 10 Year warranty
  • Life expectancy of 25 years
