Temperature Service: -163°C
After more than two years of intense work, the ALLS project (Aerial LNG Loading System), realized in Montoir-de-Bretagne of France, in collaboration with Gaz de France, Technip and attended by the same GdF, Chevron, Conoco, BP, Hoegh and Total, is concluded positively. More than two kilometres of insulation of the installation, entirely made from K-FLEX IN CLAD SYSTEM, for more than 6 months have been subjected to severe tests and controls without manifesting any problems. At the end of testing and scrupulous controls, the Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has granted a “Statement of Feasibility” certifying the adaptability of our system for LNG applications. The system can be applied at temperatures up to -163°C in marine environments and within any climatic condition. This important certification, which is granted for the first time to the elastomeric insulation product applied in a cryogenic application, is particularly important because it does not certify only the suitability of a product, but evaluates the complexity of the insulation system, including piping, valves and process equipment.
