High Tech Insulators (HTI) Improves Safety in the Mining Industry
HTI’s explosion proof heat insulation picks up where competition falls short
Livonia, Michigan – April 20, 2015
HTI’s insulation addresses aspects of safety where other products have fallen short. Similar products have been used in the mining industry to prevent coal dust explosions in underground mining operations. HTI’s insulation covers the exhaust components including the turbo housing and manifold and improves all aspects of safety while reducing long-term costs.
HTI’s insulation dramatically improves safety by:
Reducing Skin Temperature – Typical diesel exhaust gasses run at about 1100 deg F. HTI’s product will reduce skin temperature to below 300 deg F thus mitigating the coal dust flash point.
Improving Durability, Avoiding Costly Fines – HTI’s product is water and fuel resistant. Similar products deteriorate after a few power washings and are no longer compliant with safety regulations thus incurring fines.
Improving Service Safety – HTI’s product cools quickly and vastly decreases the likelihood of a mechanic sustaining a burn.
“Our customers typically replace their blanket-type products with our solution because of the vast improvement in safety, durability, and cost” – Adam Allen, President of HTI
HTI’s soft blanket encased with a cured fiberglass shell costs roughly the same as its blanket counterpart. “Our product doesn’t need to be replaced thus saving money in the future” – Adam Allen, President of HTI
