The Vermont Department of Public Health Laboratory (VDHL) performs tests to monitor Vermont’s population and environment for threats to public health. When there is a threat, such as a novel strain of disease, a natural disaster, a chemical spill or a foodborne outbreak, the laboratory is prepared to respond.
The process systems in this Biosafety Level 3 laboratory environment can be both demanding and dangerous. NCMI provided insulation solutions to improve facility efficiency, protect personnel, and save money in the form of reduced energy loss.
Fiberglass pipe covering with varying insulation thickness and an ASJ vapor barrier was used to maximize energy loss prevention.
3M Firewrap was used for ducts with potentially combustible fumes.
