AIS delivers a combined PFP and jacket solution

Samsung Heavy Industries provided a unique challenge for Advanced Insulation Korea, requiring cold conservation jackets in combination with Passive Fire Protection (PFP) for jet fire scenarios up to 15 minutes. Located offshore near Malaysia, the liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility was fully scoped in order to provide the most effective solution.

The highlights

The challenge

To provide a solution which incorporated two concepts and combining them into one standalone product. Further to this, the application of these types of jackets was relatively new for AIK, thereby requiring significant technical research to produce optimal solution.

Our solution

Our proposed solution consisted of Cryogenic insulation, Cryogel Z, in conjunction with our PFP jackets. The Cryogel Z insulation is installed using foil tape and vapour barriers as per the Aspen Aerogel recommended application procedure.

Our advantage

Cryogel Z, provided by Aspen Aerogel has a lower k-value than other insulation materials on the market, resulting in less material required for the same desired effect.

Other Highlights

Our JF45 jackets have a weather protection layer and have been tested to provide up to 120 minutes of jet fire protection and operate efficiently at all temperatures, including extreme cold environments.

The Velcro hook and loop tape design allows for continued usage of the jackets during and after maintenance checks, an important feature for the customer.
