GRP PRE-INSULATED PANEL

By encapsulating a 50mm layer of rigid polyurethane foam, PIPECO pre-insulated panel could maintain the desired water temperature stored inside the tank under extreme temperature condition. PIPECO pre-insulated panel could be selected for water storage where there is a need to stabilize the temperature against extreme heat or freezing condition so to prevent dew formation.

 

Note: *PIPECO reserves the right to provide alternate skid base designs.

PIPECO recommends an ideal concrete plinth size of 300mm (W) x 600mm (H), with maximum variance in height of not more than 3mm.
