9 Additional installation instructions Care must be taken during installation to ensure wick material stays in place while sliding, twisting, turning and aligning insulation sections. For complete and detailed installation guidelines, refer to the separate VaporWick Pipe Insulation Installation Instructions. (Pub. No. 102462) SPECIFICATIONS Physical property data Property Value Test Method Operating Temperature Range 32F to 220F (0C to 104C) - Jacket Permeance <0.15 perm ASTM E96, desiccant method Jacket Temperature Limitation 225F (107C) ASTM C1136 Minimum Burst Strength 55 psi ASTM D774/D774M Corrosion Resistance Meets requirements ASTM C665 Fungi Resistance Meets requirements ASTM C1338 Composite Surface Burning Characteristics 1 Flame Spread: <25 Smoke Developed: <50 ASTM E84, UL 723 and CAN/ULC-S102 1. The standards used to determine surface burning characteristics measure and describe the properties of materials, products or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment, which takes into account all of the factors that are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. Values are reported to the nearest 5 rating. Installation instructions 1. VaporWick pipe insulation is designed for installation on cold piping and dual-temperature piping operating at temperatures from 32F (0C) to 220F (104C). 2. Wick material must make a continuous connection (path) through all pipe, flanges, fittings, valves and hangers. 3. Open the hinged sections and place the insulation over the pipe, taking care not to get dirt, dust or moisture on the overlap area. Because the wicking action is aided by gravity, horizontal runs must have the series of evaporating holes located in the down position. 4. Pull the release strip from the lap and seal the insulation. 5. Apply the butt strip centered over the adjoining pipe sections and rub with firm pressure to complete the positive closure. 6. All system terminations should be sealed with mastic, including end-of-run transitions to other material. Note: Auxiliary items include rolls of wick material, VaporWick Pipe Insulation evaporation skirt (hula skirt) for verticals and butt joint sealing tape for system closure. 0.15 0.17 0.19 0.21 0.23 0.25 0.27 0.29 0.31 50 75 100 150 200 Mean Temperature, F Conductivity Btu in/hr ft. 2 F Thermal conductivity Mean Temperature F k* Mean Temperature C * 50 0.22 10 0.032 75 0.23 25 0.034 100 0.24 50 0.037 150 0.27 100 0.043 200 0.29 125 0.047 * k = Btu in/hr ft 2 F; = W/m C Apparent thermal conductivity data determined in accordance with ASTM Practice C1045 with data obtained by ASTM Test Method C335.
