MICROTHERM® MPS (Moulded Pipe Sections)

  • Extremely low thermal conductivity
  • Non combustible
  • Standard dimensions
  • Quick, Clean & easy to install
  • No harmful respirable fibres

Mouldable products

MICROTHERM® MPS (Moulded Pipe Sections) are preformed microporous insulation shells with very good thermal properties. The shells are covered in a glass cloth outer envelope, making them clean & easy to handle. The formulation is an opacified blend of filament reinforced pyrogenic silica.

MICROTHERM® MPS shells have a standard thickness of 25mm and are designed to fit on standardized pipes. Standard elbows are available for 45° & 90° (others on request).

For diameters bigger than 324 mm we advise the use of other Microtherm products such as MICROTHERM® SLATTED, MICROTHERM® OVERSTITCHED, or MICROTHERM® SEMI-OVERSTITCHED. Combining multiple layers of MICROTHERM® MPS is not always possible. Please contact your local Promat company for more information.

Working & processing
< #Back#
MICROTHERM® MPS can be shaped both manually and with stationary wood processing machinery. The shells can be cut, sawn, and drilled. The shells are installed with wire and straps, identical to conventional insulation materials (the procedure can be found in our catalogue on microporous insulation).

Typical applications
< #Back#
Microporous insulation offers an extremely low thermal conductivity, close to the lowest theoretically possible at high temperatures. Microporous materials are the preferred choice when a large temperature reduction is required within a limited space, or when strict heat loss or surface temperature requirements are specified.

  • Petrochemical industry & power generation
  • CSP (Concentrated Solar Power)
  • Piping insulation
  • Fuel Cells
  • PFP (Passive Fire Protection)
