Putting Passive Fire Protection into Action
Since ROCKWOOL first started producing stone wool 85 years ago, we’ve worked with many plant owners and operators looking for new solutions to their evolving process challenges. With our aspiration of becoming a critical partner at the owner level, we’ve learned that plants require low-cost, long-lasting solutions that maintain a steady thermal profile inside their pipelines while protecting from external threats like fire and water.
Hydrocarbon fires pose particularly severe risks to industrial facilities like petrochemical plants and refineries. They are extremely hazardous due to their unmatched heat and spread. Without proper safeguards in place, such fires can cause serious injuries, environmental damage, and significant downtime (unplanned repair and rebuilds)—all of which contribute to substantial direct and indirect costs that hurt plant profitability.
