ThermoFlo

Polyurethane Insulation Systems

ThermoFlo® is a polyurethane-based syntactic foam subsea insulation system designed for flow assurance.

System Description:

  • Layer 1: Anti-corrosion - Fusion Bonded Epoxy
  • Layer 2: Insulation - molded glass syntactic polyurethane

Superior Insulation Properties and Unmatched Mechanical Performance

  • Lower thermal conductivity results in lower achievable U values
  • Extended cool-down time

Installation

  • Can be installed using all subsea laying methods including reeling, S-lay and J-lay
  • The elastomeric nature of the material provides excellent impact resistance and fatigue life

FJ Compatibility

  • ThermoFlo® Joint
  • Nemo 1.1

Value Added Services

  • Streamlined delivery schedules, product standardization and quality assurance practices due to simplified processing operations
  • Universally and readily available project management and logistics support from multiple existing plant locations
