VERSATILITY: RIDGLOK® Panel Insulation Systems can be installed WHILE TANK REMAINS IN SERVICE to all types of tanks. RIDGLOK® attachment connections are internal of the insulation system, providing protection from weather elements to ensure longevity, making the RIDGLOK® Panel Insulation System far superior to conventional systems.
APPLICATIONS: Thermal energy storage tanks, anaerobic digester tanks, waste water and power plant storage tanks
RIDGLOK® REDUCES tank external temperatures for “safe-touch” personnel safety.
SATISFIED CUSTOMERS INCLUDE: Geo Thermal Power Plants, Bio Solids Plants, Fog Energy Plants, University of Illinois Thermal Energy Tanks, Cryogenic Energy Plants.
THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE (TES) TANKS: Chilled water is produced during periods of off-peak electrical demand when rates are lower, and the water is collected in a thermal energy storage (TES) tank. The chilled water is then withdrawn and distributed throughout the facility during peak demand hours. This process lowers energy costs by reducing the power consumption. Insulating the TES tank further increases energy savings by retaining the chilled temperatures within the tank.
ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS: Organic waste such as animal manure is collected and put in an air tight digester tank. Various types of bacteria are added, and the decomposition of the matter begins. Process temperatures affect the rate of digestion and need to be regulated in order to maintain the correct temperature. Insulation helps regulate the temperatures within the tank, along with heaters. Anaerobic digestion is used as a source or renewable energy.
