Insulation saves space


UK-based marine engineering company Halyard has launched Heat Shell, a thermal insulation product that removes the need for thermal insulation jackets on exhaust systems.

Heat Shell is a glass webbing that can be applied to the riser section of the exhaust system to provide an air-tight and liquid-proof covering that cannot be damaged by external agents. It offers heat loss prevention and reduced surface temperature and improves on traditional thermal insulation solutions with increased strength, durability and look.

Assembly time is also reduced, as Halyard applies the Heat Shell at its manufacturing facilities and not on site.
