KingWrap provides a fast, easy method of insulating pipes and fittings. It is used to control condensation drip on domestic cold-water, chilled-water, and other cold piping bond with metal surfaces. On cold piping and fittings and to reduce heat loss when applied to hot-water lines that will operate up to 180°F(82°C). KingWrap may be used in conjunction with Kingflex Pipe and Sheet Insulation. Its greatest advantage, however, is the ease with which it can be used to insulate short lengths of pipe and fittings in congested or hard-to-reach areas.
KingWrap is applied by removing release paper as the tape is spirally bond with metal surfaces. On cold piping, the number of wraps required must be sufficient to keep the outer insulation surface above the dew point of the air so that sweating will be controlled. On hot lines, the number of wraps is dictated only by the amount of heat loss control that is desired. On dual-temperature lines, any number of wraps sufficient to control sweating on the cold cycle is usually adequate for the heating cycle.
Multiple wraps are recommended. Tape should be applied with a spiral wrap to obtain a 50% overlap. Additional layers are added to build up insulation to the required thickness.
To insulate valves, tees, and other fittings, small pieces of tape should be cut to size and pressed into place, with no metal exposed. The fitting then is additionally over-wrapped with longer lengths for a durable and efficient job.
