The Efficiency of EPP Foam in HVAC Components

The Efficiency of EPP Foam in HVAC Components

Expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam insulates critical components in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC) systems. EPP finds extensive use in thermo-hydraulic applications, including duct and pipe insulation in ventilation systems, water heaters, pumps, filters, and motors.

EPP offers key insulating and protective properties for HVAC:

  • EPP foam provides excellent heat insulation, reducing heat loss and maintaining temperature in products like refrigerators, coolers, and air ventilation systems, saving energy.
  • Using EPP enhances the efficiency of air conditioning and ventilation, conserving resources and reducing environmental impact.
  • EPP molded parts are durable, reliable, elastic, and flexible, making it easy to encase valuable system components such as filters, fans, ducts, pumps, and pipes, safeguarding them from mechanical damage.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) manufactured by the Isowall Group is fast becoming recognized as the insulation material of choice by specifiers of “Bills of Quantities”. This comes largely as a result of our technical knowledge backed up by years of experience in the building and construction industry.

  • EPP acts as a cost-effective thermal cover or casing where heat exchange is needed, without the requirement of accessories and fasteners. System parts can be fitted easily into the EPP mould and foam indentations, saving significant material costs.
  • EPP is highly versatile in its design and applications, successfully housing components in solar heating, refrigerating, cooling, ventilating and air-conditioning systems.
  • EPP has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, with exceptional load-bearing quality, reducing weight and volumes. This is an essential quality in wall-mounted air conditioning and ventilation systems.
  • EPP foam is energy-saving fully recyclable, contributing to the reduction of environmental footprint while maintaining high thermal insulating performance.

In conclusion, EPP’s characteristics, such as design versatility, elasticity, lightness and strength, are ideal for the thermal insulation and protection of HVAC components.
