In the pulp and paper industry, corrosion under insulation (CUI) is an understood problem, and mitigation methods are well established. However, it is pervasive and continues to cost the paper industry millions of dollars annually. Having a proper jacketing system like ProClad that is highly chemical resistant and yet maintains water tightness in a high moisture environment is key to help reduce maintenance cost and maintain higher earnings. With ProClad as your jacket, we can help design lower cost insulation solutions. ProClad is an effective CUI prevention strategy based on life-cycle costs that can significantly reduce costs due to downtime, maintenance repair, and inspection.
ProClad not only serves as a frontline defense against intrusive corrosive elements, but also maintains a watertight seal that keeps insulation secure, preventing CUI. In addition, ProClad differentiates itself from competitors, such as aluminum or stainless-steel sheet claddings, by its excellent flexural and tensile strength. This allows for active foot traffic in walk-on areas, without damaging the insulation and piping underneath. Our systems can be prefabricated, allowing for seamless and easy construction. The ProClad system ensure your food processing systems operate at peak performance with less maintenance and lower costs overall.
