Lydall Performance Materials has provided specialty cryogenic insulation in a very sizable vacuum jacketed piping project for liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminals in Australia and the United States.
Lydall partnered with Cryeng Group Pty Ltd, who is responsible for engineering and design of the LNG infrastructure, to complete the project. Cooperation between Lydall and Cryeng spans over a five-year period and has proven that Cryeng’s engineering and design expertise in combination with Lydall’s high performance Cryogenic Insulation and application support deliver the utmost performance and efficiency.
The Australian projects have been successfully commissioned and are in operation. The construction projects in the United States are currently underway and the first phase is expected to be progressively completed in early 2017 followed by a plant commissioning in 2018.
The Lydall Cryogenic Insulation product, CRS-Wrap that is utilized in this project is part of an important cryogenic product platform managed by the Insulation Group within Lydall’s Performance Materials division. CRS-Wrap is a multilayer system with alternating layers of cryogenic tissue and aluminum foil. When wrapped on the inner vessel or pipe containing the liquid gas, it protects the liquid from radiation heat transfer enabling a greater amount of liquid gas, or in this project LNG, to be delivered to the desired destination.
