Elastomeric Foam Insulation Meets Requirements of Demanding Application at Dakota Gasification Company


When Dakota Gasification was experiencing significant ice accumulation in its cold service insulation in the rectisol area, they chose K-Flex flexible elastomeric foam insulation to solve the issue. The elastomeric system was a replacement for a previously installed PUR with metal jacketing system that had resulted in substantial ice ac­cumulation.

To ensure Dakota Gas received the best possible insula­tion solution, K-Flex served as a design partner through the project’s planning stages and provided on-site in­stallation support until the project was complete.

The K-Flex FEF system has provided excellent thermal performance.  Key benefits include no ice accumulation and proper process temperature control. Since the project’s com­pletion, DGC has achieved lower process temperatures under the same chiller load, improving the gas purifica­tion process and extending the life of the catalyst by reducing sulfur levels.
