Technology company Continental has been named the winner of the Industrial Energy Efficiency Award (IEEA), presented for the first time at the 2019 Hannover Messe trade fair. Deutsche Messe is working with EuPD Research, an independent market research and consulting company, to honor outstanding energy efficiency processes within industry. Continental won over the jury with its highly flexible Conti Thermo Protect insulation system in the category for large industrial companies. The silicone material can be used in industrial systems worldwide.
Anne Ochsendorf and Stefan Füllgraf from Continental accepted the Industrial Energy Efficiency Award for the Conti Thermo Protect insulation system
Highly flexible system for efficient thermal insulation
Whether for valves in steam pipes, braided hoses, or heating pipes in tire presses, the highly flexible Conti Thermo Protect (CTP) insulation system has already proven its worth in industrial thermal insulation. Continental developed the special silicone rubber compound as a flexible form of thermal insulation for complex line and piping systems and for other components. The material provides unique market solutions for insulating flexible, high-temperature pipes and hoses.
Conti Thermo Protect consists of a silicone-rubber compound that is easy to cut, manipulate, and apply in a precise manner in its supplied state
Huge savings potential
Conti Thermo Protect offers great added value for medium-sized companies and large businesses. By insulating system parts, industrial companies could cut energy consumption by between 20 and 80 %. This is where the Continental insulation system comes into play. This multi-award-winning product reliably protects against heat loss and cuts energy costs considerably – whether in heating or hydraulic systems, thermal oil installations, or vulcanizing presses. This is how Conti Thermo Protect amortizes itself in a very short time. The material is self-adhesive, water repellent and self-extinguishing, UV-resistant, and weatherproof.
