Cold / Cryogenic Insulation

The Coolest Job at KAEFER

It takes a spe­cial kind of ex­pert to con­trol the freez­ing tem­per­at­ures of minus 163°C ne­ces­sary to handle, store and sup­ply li­que­fied nat­ural gas (LNG).  KAEFER has over 40 years of ex­per­i­ence in LNG and some say that those who work there quite lit­er­ally have the coolest job in the com­pany.

From high-per­form­ance in­su­la­tion at gas plants and pipelines to stor­age and trans­port­a­tion tanks, we provide a wide range of ser­vices and solu­tions for the whole gas hand­ling chain.

In fact, we have two spe­cial­ised di­vi­sions ded­ic­ated to LNG – our Cor­por­ate Com­pet­ence Cen­ter Li­que­fied Gases (CCCL) and the LNG Solu­tions Cen­ter.  Both are staffed with ex­perts who are spe­cial­ists in ad­apt­ing to chal­len­ging scen­arios and be­spoke ap­plic­a­tions where mech­an­ical and thermal ten­sions are high.

The KAEFER LNG Solu­tions Cen­ter fo­cuses on de­liv­er­ing soph­ist­ic­ated and in­tel­li­gent solu­tions and ser­vices to ma­jor LNG pro­jects.  We have de­veloped a pre-in­su­la­tion pro­cess for pipes, which is mod­u­lar and flex­ible, al­low­ing pipes to be in­su­lated ef­fi­ciently be­fore they are in­stalled on site.  This means they are not sub­ject to en­vir­on­mental vari­ables and the pro­cess saves time and money by en­sur­ing high qual­ity and lower levels of man­power and scaf­fold­ing.  Fur­ther­more, our sys­tem is highly mo­bile and can be set up in close prox­im­ity to large-scale pro­jects around the world – this shortens transit times and lowers costs as well.
