For many years we have supplied the proven dehonit® material with excellent properties and references as insulation material for tank and pipe supports used in the cryogenic market (LNG, LPG and Ethylene) worldwide.

Only premium insulation material such as dehonit® has superior qualities being:

  • Maximum mechanical strength can be developed in any required direction
  • High compressive strength
  • Low specific weight
  • Water resistant (water absorption less than 1 %)
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Low coefficient of linear expansion
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Temperature stability from -196°C to + 90°C

The combination of these properties makes dehonit® an ideal material for mechanical high loaded cryogenic insulations.

dehonit® is approved by Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Bureau Veritas (BV), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) and Lloyd’s register (LR), ABS, Class NK, CCS and JMU/IHI (SPB tank).

With excellent insulation properties and compressive strength dehonit® has become one of the leading materials for

  • Tank farm
  • Fuel tanks
  • Service: advice, installation and fitting, inspections
  • Pipeline construction
  • Tank supports
  • Anti-floating and rolling chocks
  • Anti-pitching chocks
  • (On board) pipe supports
  • Dome panels
  • Moveable and fixed bearing
  • Sliding support blocks
  • Longitudinal fixation blocks
  • SPB tank supports

A new Generation of Flexible Cryogenic Supports

dehoflex® is a combination of various materials, our well-known dehonit® B740-1 compressed laminated wood and a flexible layer.

By accurately inserting the flexible layer at various points within the block during manufacture, we can eliminate the thermal stress cracks when the blocks are assembled into the supporting structure. The system was developed and refined using many small-scale simulation tests and confirmed by carrying out a test on full size blocks in our own cooling chamber,

  • High compressive strength
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Low specific weight
  • Low coefficient of linear expansion
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Water resistant
  • Temperature stability
