Speed Wrap® ESi replaces the Speed Wrap® ES product line

Introducing Speed Wrap ESi Pipe Insulation

SpeedTech USA, LLC is proud to announce Speed Wrap® ESi as the worthy successor to the discontinued Speed Wrap® ES product line.  Once we learned the insulating material we were using in Speed Wrap® ES was being discontinued, we hoped to find a material that was as good or better than what we were using.  Fortunately, we have found a material that insulates better than the material in Speed Wrap® ES.  And at just over 3/8″ thickness, Speed Wrap® ESi is just slightly thicker than Speed Wrap® ES, which was 1/4″ thick.

We compared insulating properties at a variety of conditions to get a general idea of how Speed Wrap® ESi would stack up to its predecessor.  To perform the calculations, we used the industry recognized 3E Plus® software.  The chart below shows the 5 different conditions we evaluated.  Conditions were chosen to represent a wide variety of usage scenarios.

Switching from Speed Wrap® ES?  Here is what you need to know:

  1. Sizing has changed only for straight pipe insulation for pipe sizes from 1/2″ to 2″
    1. Small Straight (p/n 2210204-3) has been split into individual sizes of 1/2″ IPS (4210204-3) and 3/4″ IPS (4210206-3)
    2. Medium Straight (p/n 2210208-3) has been split into individual sizes of 1″ IPS (4210208-3) and 1 1/4″ IPS (4210210-3)
    3. Large Straight (p/n 2210212-3) has been split into individual sizes of 1 1/2″ IPS (4210212-3) and 2″ IPS (4210214-3)
  2. Insulation thickness increases from 1/4″ thick to just over 3/8″ thick, adding a little over 1/4″ to the diameter of an insulated pipe compared to a pipe insulated with Speed Wrap® ES
  3. Speed Wrap® ESi fitting insulation will work on pipes insulated with Speed Wrap® ES straight pipe insulation
