    Abstract

    It has been proven that it actually costs less to properly insulate process vessels, pipes, valves, and flanges, and thereby conserve energy, than not to insulate and supply sufficient additional heating or cooling capacity to cover the loss or gain of heat. Thermal insulation is, therefore, a long-term investment. In the present energy crisis it becomes even more; it becomes a definite necessity and an obligation.
