StingRay Thermal Insulation &
Noise Reduction on Cabinet Door
Insulating the wash tank not only saves energy, it eliminates hot and dangerous surfaces which could cause accidental injury. An insulated Parts Washer is user friendly. Insulation reduces the surface temperature to a safer level, resulting in increased worker safety and the avoidance of worker downtime due to injury. Walls are safe to touch even when washer is operating at 200 degrees F (93 degrees C). The insulated wash cabinet also forms a sound barrier between the Power Wash blasting inside cabinet and the surrounding work area. The noise reduction is well below the 90 dBA maximum time weighted average for noise exposure as specified in OSHA 29CFR 1910.95.
Installing Insulation Board
Technical details of Thermal Insulation and Noise Reduction System:
All vertical cabinet surfaces and roof of Wash Cabinet are insulated to R=4.3. Insulation material is 1 inch (25 mm) thick cellular polystyrene that does not absorb and retain moisture like Fiberglas or other insulating materials. Frame for insulation is 1 inch steel tube welded to exterior of cabinet. Insulation is placed between metal framework and covered with 18-gauge (1.2 mm) galvanized sheet steel. All interior surface are rust proofed with zinc primer before the insulation and skins are installed. Galvanized steel covering is secured to frame every 6-8 inches with self-tapping screws.
