Class O Armaflex and Armafix pipe supports used to insulate all air conditioning pipework and chilled water system lines against condensation
and energy losses onboard the Sunseeker range of luxury yachts.
On board the range of Sunseeker luxury cruisers and yachts, various types of air conditioning and chilled water systems are fitted, depending on the size and specification of the craft (the current Sunseeker range encompasses yachts from 40 foot to 155 foot long). For the larger boats chilled water systems that cool fresh water before pumping it through an insulated piping loop to air handlers located in the living spaces are used.
On the open sea, yachts can regularly experience temperatures of 40°C, and so a high performance insulation is essential to protect the interior pipework from condensation in humid conditions.
Insulation thicknesses were calculated for a range of ambient and line temperatures, followed up with after sales support including installer application training at our Oldham training school and onsite application supervision at Sunseekers Poole boat yard.
Class O Armaflex represents the ideal insulation material for Sunseeker, with the flexible structure convenient for fitting into tight spaces and making it easier to cut and fabricate onsite. The closed cell structure of Armaflex also makes it the preferred solution for refrigeration and air conditioning pipework, offering a combination of low thermal conductivity and a built-in barrier against water vapour transmission.
