For over 25 years FEROFORM F3637, high load and bearing insulation pads, have been the industry standard for tankers carrying heated bulk liquids in independent tank constructions. Approved by the main Marine Classification Societies, FEROFORM F3637 is designed to customer’s requirements, easy and quick to install and is the ideal choice for new build and repairing or upgrading existing insulation systems. F3637 components have been specified on over 70 vessels of up to 37,000 tonnes in weight, classed by B.V., D.N.V., G.L., A.B.S., N.K.K., and Lloyds, to date.
FEROFORM F3637 is particularly suited to the insulating bearing pads of tankers carrying asphalt, bitumen, sulphur and coal tar tanks up to 280 °C. The combination of high insulation, low thermal expansion, and controlled friction means the tanks can expand freely without damage when they are filled and emptied.
FEROFORM F3637 has low thermal conductivity and as such achieves a significant temperature difference across the pad
thickness as well as being reinforced with high-quality engineering fibres. These insulating tanker pads have typically 4 times the load bearing capacity of traditional systems.
TENMAT FEROFORM F3637 load bearing insulation pads are suitable for use with:
- Easy to Install
- Maintenance Free, outlasting ships lifetime
- Superior Load Bearing Capacity to competing systems
- High Load Capacity means Fewer Pads required to Carry Cargo
- Low installation costs
- Controlled Tank Movement
- Can be used up to 300 °C
- Very Low Thermal Conductivity
- Controlled, Stable Friction
- Non-metallic Formulation
- Designed to meet Customer Requirements with full flexibility on pad sizes
- Supplied fully machined
- Finite Element Analysis (FEM) is also offered to ensure your design is optimized
FEROFORM insulation pads are maintenance free and will outlast the ship. No pad has ever required an in-service replacement.
Leading ship owners continue to place their trust in Tenmat for tankers and barges ranging from 1,000—37,000dwt.
