Mechanical Insulation

Mechanical Insulation is the one thing that goes into a building and starts paying for itself as soon as the system is activated – immediately saving energy and reducing greenhouse emissions.

Mechanical insulation – a time-tested and proven technology – involves the insulation and jacketing of mechanical systems.

It provides numerous benefits, including:

  • Reducing energy costs
  • Fire stopping
  • Enhancing performance of mechanical systems
  • Maximizing Return on Investment
  • Reducing emissions and noise
  • Preventing condensation
  • Providing safety and personnel protection
  • Improving appearance
  • Increasing life expectancy of new mechanical equipment


Union insulators have the experience, skills and resources to handle a wide-variety of insulation-related projects ranging from nuclear and electrical power plants, ethanol plants, automotive manufacturing facilities, and food-processing plants to hospitals, schools, semi-conductors and high-rise buildings. The expertise of our members runs the gamut to include the thermal control of multi-million-dollar projects, annual maintenance check-ups and even small repairs.


Almost as important is the ability to identify and recuperate faulty and failing insulation systems and upgrade them properly. Our members are ready to handle such work, which will improve the life span of pre-existing insulation, as well as making it more efficient and cost-effective.

We strongly encourage you to sign up for an audit, which can measure the repairs and provide facilities with a true maintenance program for management of piping and equipment. This is another step that quickly pays for itself as the audit will provide methods to realize the potential savings available through proper insulation maintenance.
