UniVest® by UniTherm is a removable and reusable plastics equipment insulation jacket UniVest® is an ideal way
UniVest® Insulation Systems are removable/reusable plastics equipment insulation jackets. UniVest® is an ideal way for plastics processors to reduce their plant energy costs, protect employees from the hazards of hot equipment, and lower the plants’ ambient air temperatures.

Equipment Insulation Payback
Removable insulation jackets for plastics processing equipment generally pay for themselves in less than 12 months, often times much quicker depending on process type, temperature, and cost per KWH. No other energy project will pay for itself as quickly and with as little upfront effort as UniVest® removable insulation jackets. Check out our energy study library.
Heat loss = wasted energy. The idea behind equipment insulation jackets is simple. Keep the heat in the machine where it belongs, spend less money on electricity. Enjoy the fringe benefits of personnel protection and a much cooler facility.
Dryer hoses and process pipe are also culprits of high energy bills. These lines often go uninsulated and waste their share of electricity dollars every single day. ThermaSleeve is a low-cost, quick payback solution to reduce wasted energy and protect employees.
Not all parts are suitable for insulation jackets. Rigid board insulation is ideal for molds, dies, and other parts subject to high impact or moisture such as oils and lubricants. Our white board insulation is ideal for these applications – it is very durable and moisture-resistant. Board insulation is sold in sheets or pre-drilled, ready to bolt on.

DroolShield® Protects Machines and Insulation
Customers with machines that “drool” or “blow back” plastic assume they won’t be able to use insulation jackets because of the potential machine damage. DroolShield® protects machines, bands and wire.
DroolShield® is a PTFE-coated, air craft aluminum disc (clean-room suitable) that fits on the nozzle or nozzle body to block drool or blow-back from reaching insulation jackets, heater bands, and wires. Plastic drool collects on the shield instead of damaging or destroying your investments. DroolShield® withstands temperatures up to 700ºF (370ºC), making them a reusable, long-term solution for blow back at an affordable price.
