Descriptions and applications
The Python is an insulation kit that is designed for large tanks. It wraps all the way around the tank. It can go all the way the top, (typically 22’) or it can go as high as is required by the contents in the tank. This insulation is usually used for oil tanks, which through the process of gravitation, oil is being separated from water. Therefore, once the separation has occurred, there is no further need to insulate the oil, just the slurry.
The weight of the insulation is carried by the lumber, (2x4’s) which are standing up against the tank, and are typically distanced every 7’ apart. The insulation kit includes the hooks that are put into the lumber, so as to carry the weight of the insulation. The straps go around the insulation, holding the insulation tight up against the tank. This system prevents the Python from sagging or sliding down the storage tank.
Our suspension system allows the tanks to be insulated from a 4 foot height to the full height of the storage tank, or any height in between.
Depending on the size of the tank and the required height, there may be several pieces. Instructions come with each kit.
It is a very economical solution to insulating large tanks. Insulation Snake Grommet works well with this product.
