BISCO is specialized in Construction and Maintenance Work for Thermal Insulation in Process Plants, Tanks and Pipelines in refineries and petrochemical plants. BISCO offers a full Insulation system from material supply, fabrication and site installation for all types of insulation.

Effective thermal insulation is particularly important in meeting the high standards of the chemical and petro-chemical industries.

Good knowledge of the technical processes will facilitate choosing the right insulation material and the optimum adoption of insulation thickness. BISCO crews have a wide range of knowledge and experience in these technical matters, and are always available for assistance and advise.

Multi-layer insulation and cladding
Multilayer insulation, the most common form of radiation shielding used in cryogenic systems, is also called super insulation for a reason. When properly installed it is a relatively low cost and highly effective thermal insulation system. However, when improperly installed, that effectiveness will be degraded. The effects of poor installation technique can range from almost unnoticeable to severe, depending upon the misapplication.

Faced Duct Wrap Insulation (FDW)
Faced Duct Wrap Insulation is highly efficient, resilient, flexible blanket insulation composed of fine, stable and uniformly textured inorganic glass fibers bonded together by a non-water soluble and fire-retardant thermosetting and heat resistant resin. It is free from coarse fibers and shot due to its mineral composition.

Faced Duct Wrap Insulation is manufactured in a roll form and subsequently faced on one side by factory laminators, with a suitable vapor retardant Aluminum Foil Reinforced Kraft Paper Laminate (FRK), All Service Jacket (ASJ) or other specific vapor barrier for installation on the exterior of ductwork. The facings have UL fire resistant ratings.

Heat Insulation
Thermal insulation is the reduction of heat transfer (the transfer of thermal energy between objects of differing temperature) between objects in thermal contact or in range of radioactive influence. Thermal insulation can be achieved with specially engineered methods or processes, as well as with suitable object shapes and materials.
Heat flow is an inevitable consequence of contact between objects of differing temperature. Thermal insulation provides a region of insulation in which thermal conduction is reduced or thermal radiation is reflected rather than absorbed by the lower-temperature body.

Acoustical Ceiling Panels (ACP)
Acoustical Ceiling Panels are composed of fine, stable and uniformly textured inorganic glass fibers bonded together by a non-water soluble and fire-retardant

Thermosetting and fire resistant resin. They are free from coarse fibers and shot due to their mineral composition. Acoustical Ceiling Panels are faced with abuse-resistant washable PVC film facing. Standard available facing:

  • Random Fissured
  • Shasta
  • Woven Mat
  • Vinta

Mechanical Board Insulation (MBD)
Mechanical Board Insulation is composed of fine, stable and uniformly textured inorganic glass fibers bonded together by a non-water soluble and fire retardant thermosetting and heat resistant resin, and formed into semi-rigid and rigid rectangular boards or slabs. It is free from coarse fibers and shot due to its mineral composition.
Mechanical Board Insulation is available unfaced or with one side factory-applied Aluminum Foil Reinforced Kraft Paper Laminate (FRK), or a white All Service Jacket (ASJ) to give a pleasing appearance vapor barrier. The facings have UL fire resistant ratings.
