Writing an Industrial Insulation Specification

Preparing an insulation specification for a high-temperature insulation system is not a simple procedure. It is, in fact, a very complicated process involving multiple variables and the making of many engineering choices. The biggest fallacy is that one specification can work for all situations.

An insulation specification should be broken down into four major sections: scope; general conditions; material specifications; and application specifications. The following is considered the minimum requirements per section for a well-written specification.
