Advanced Insulation, a manufacturer of technical coatings for the upstream oil and gas industry, has launched ContraFlame CSP & PFP, a fire-rated cryogenic spill protection tile system designed to support rapid application during construction or offshore retrofit projects.
This new modular, multi-functional tile system provides integrated thermal insulation and passive fire protection to J60 or H120 IMO classifications, and thermal insulation for decks exposed to cryogenic spill.
ContraFlame CSP phenolic or polyester fibreglass-reinforced tiles are filled with Advanced Insulation’s ContraFlame C50 thermal insulation material. The micro-cellular structure of C50’s syntactic foam is derived from lightweight additives rather than through blowing agents, which creates a closed-cell structure that is unaffected by water even when fully immersed.
Suitable for internal and vertical panelling use on floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) projects, ContraFlame CSP has been tested for cryogenic spills of liquefied natural gas (LNG) at -164°C for 2h50m which, during tests, limited the back face temperature of the steel to -28°C.
Each 0.5m x 1.0m ContraFlame CSP tile is 34mm thick and weighs 16kgs; is impervious to water and can withstand chemical or acid spills. They are designed for continuous use at operating temperatures from -40°C to +150°C and are tested to withstand thermal shock to -196°C in LIN spillage conditions. ContraFlame CSP also prevents corrosion under insulation (CUI) and provides outstanding physical performance for creep and fatigue in the marine environment.
