Sonal Desai, Ph.D.
The course is about insulation and refractory material. Thermal insulations are materials that insulate the components of mechanical systems in commercial buildings and industrial processes. In buildings, insulations are installed to improve the energy consumption of the buildings' cooling and heating systems, domestic hot and chilled water supply, and refrigerated systems including ducts and housings.
For industrial facilities, such as power plants, refineries, and paper mills, thermal insulations are installed to control heat gain or heat loss on process piping and equipment, steam and condensate distribution systems, boilers, smoke stacks, bag houses and precipitators, storage tanks etc.
Refractory material is used to withstand high temperature and is made of inorganic, non metallic, porous and heterogeneous material, and used in high temperature applications like furnaces, metal extraction, cement making, glass making, ceramics etc.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
