The Alchemist, a world-famous brewery in Stowe, Vermont, recently completed a major expansion. With the opening of their new brew house and visitors’ center, they significantly increased their production capacity—and their challenges. From controlling condensation to keeping staff safe, mechanical insulation played a significant role in the successful completion of this project.
The Mechanical Room
Fiberglass pipe covering in the mechanical room provides personnel protection, heat loss prevention, and condensation control, all critically important to the effective operation of the brewery.
The Brew House
FPC and Armaflex insulation protect against condensation and maintain proper temperature of the brewing water; protected with PVC for aesthetics, waterproofing, and increased R value.
Air Handling Unit
Fiberglass duct wrap and pipe insulation to protect from condensation and heat loss from fluctuating climate control.
