At the Everett, Mass., LNG facility of Distrigas Corp., some 1500 linear feet of 0.75 to 14 in. dia piping was insulated with one of the first single-layer applications of rigid polyurethane foam LNG pipe insulation (Dow Chemical Co.s Thurane") sheathed with aluminum jacketing. The foam has a small closed cell structure, a compressive strength of 25 psi at 5% deflection, and a recommended temperature range of -290 F to plus 250 F. The insulation is highly resistant to solvents, water absorption is less than 0.1% by vol. and water vapor transmission is 1.0.
