GOLDEN, Colo., Aug. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Syneffex™ Inc. today reviewed the results of a one year study of the Company's nanotechnology based thermal insulation for large storage tanks.
Sinopec, China's oil & gas company and the fifth largest company in the world by revenue, needed a better solution than fibrous insulation for its offshore fuel storage tanks. They wanted a cost effective thermal insulation that would not degrade in the marine environment and prevented corrosion under insulation (CUI).
Syneffex™ Heat Shield™ High Heat provided them with an effective solution in a weather proof thin-film application on the fuel storage tank of an offshore drilling platform that also prevented corrosion. The tank contents had to be kept between 68C and 72C. The average winter temperature (East China Sea) is 13.4C.
Stuart Burchill, CEO/CTO of Syneffex, states, "1.2 mm (0.047 Inches) of our product successfully replaced 80.0 mm (3.15 Inches) of mineral wool with cladding. Over a one year study, it proved to perform within 3 degrees C of the 80 mm rock wool insulation, it solved the corrosion under insulation (CUI) problem, and provided a cost effective solution that would stand up to the harsh ocean environment without degrading, reducing maintenance costs."

Mr. Burchill continues, "Volumes of independent test data verify our superior performance qualities, but real world results like this are more rewarding to our team."
