What is a FPG Energy Alternative ISO Cover?

Most facilities adequately insulate their pipe work, but leave the biggest area for heat loss exposed - pipe valves and flanges. Whether for emergency or routine maintenance, or because of the awkward shapes, these items get left uncovered, thereby allowing substantial heat loss, while gradually reducing the bottom line and the energy efficiency in your commercial building. Over a year’s time, this financial loss can add up to thousands of dollars. Reduce hot water costs simply by installing ISO Covers.

ISO Covers are removable, reusable insulated covers that wrap around the valves, flanges and other anciliary equipment in your boiler and equipment rooms. By helping to prevent the amount of heat loss experienced from the valve and flange area of your pipes, you will significantly reduce industrial heating and hot water costs over a year’s time. ISO Covers can be quickly removed and replaced with little effort, and are designed to save energy and provide personnel protection.

To meet specific requirements, these covers can be manufactured with a variety of different insulations, facings and sewing threads to adapt to different temperature ranges and environmental conditions.

As part of our Heat Management Solution, FPG Energy Alternatives encourages you to consider the ISO Cover as a part of your industrial energy savings plan. Contact us today to determine what type of ISO Cover is best for your needs.

How the ISO Cover is made

Who Can ISO Covers Help?

Hospitals & Care Facilities

With today’s energy costs, the payback on an FPG Energy Alternatives ISO Cover has become even faster. Running on continuous operation, payback through typical savings on steam is less than one year and around two years on hot water.

Schools & Universities

In most universities, complex engineering solutions are in place to ensure that steam and hot water reach all outlying buildings efficiently. Unfortunately, school energy savings is lost because this engineering skill is not utilized effectively to ensure that adequate insulation is applied to the valves and flanges.

Corporate Buildings

While the heating and hot water systems of many of these buildings are not continuously operating, valves and flanges that are not insulated properly still deflate your bottom line. A heat management solution with the ISO Cover offers an excellent payback, regardless of how large your facility is.

Government Buildings

As a major employer, the government needs various facilities to provide services for its citizens. Many of these buildings have adequate pipe insulation, but valves and flanges are left exposed. ISO Covers provide a solution to reduce operating costs.

Military Installations

These installations can cover a vast amount of acreage and encompass many buildings. Systems that deliver steam and hot water throughout the complex will not have to work as hard, and the cost of running them will be reduced, if all valves and flanges are insulated with an ISO Cover.

Care & Retirement Homes

Hot water is a constant requirement when it comes to keeping a facility warm and clean for its elderly patients. Unfortunately, the care given to the elderly is not always given to the fabric of the building. The heating system can have many valves and flanges left open without insulated covers. ISO Covers are an easy solution to reduce industrial costs.

How Much Can You Save?

With today’s energy costs, the payback on an FPG Energy Alternatives ISO Cover has become even faster. Running on continuous operation, payback through typical savings on steam is less than one year and around two years on hot water.

To find out how much you can save with these pipe valve covers, let us know your cost of fuel, your operating temperature and how many months a year the system is running. We will give you an estimated figure of your return-on-investment.

The US Department of Energy advises that a 6-inch valve on continuous operation operating at 400° F with a fuel cost of $8.00 MMBtu can save $525 per year when an Insulation Cover is fitted:
