Range Of Services

Intherpro LLC is the International Company for Thermal Insulation and Passive Fire Protection, wholly owned by Insulco Lebanon Group, with head office in Beirut, Lebanon. As a group, we are leaders in performing quality services as per ISO 9001 – 2000. Intherpro LLC is established here in the UAE with offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and warehouse facilities in Sharjah and Mussafah.

Intherpro has been in the insulation field since 1969 and in the fire protection field since 1971. Since its establishment, it has performed several jobs:

Aspects of insulation such as:

o Hot and cold insulation
o Cryogenic insulation
o Thermal spray insulation
o Acoustical insulation
o Sound insulation

Aspects of fireproofing such as:

o Cementitious spray application on structural steel and concrete
o Intumescent paint application on steel structure
o Fire stopping by sealing penetration
o Fire barriers
o Fire rated duct work
o Fire door

We have an engineering department that assists in full design, preparation and issuance of drawings. Intherpro LLC can supply material and erect on site in accordance with site requirements.

Refineries
Installation works for refineries require equipment, trained staff, good organization and coordination on site in order to cope with the schedule of deliveries and execute high quality insulation.

Our team executed several large refineries in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Lebanon using modern types of scaffolding, machines and tools.

The specialists on prefabrication and installation, under the supervision of engineers and foremen, are able to execute very large jobs within the schedule required by the client.

Cement Factories
Our team is able to study, propose, supply and execute all insulation and refractory works for cement factories.
Our team can also provide complete crew with all machines and tools to execute maintenance works in the existing factories in the UAE.

 

 

LNG, LPG and Petrochemical Plants
With the aid of our specialists in hot and cold insulation, our team executed all types of units for LNG, LPG and petrochemical plants with service temperature from -200ºC to +1600°C (distillation, steamcracking, ethylene, ammonia, sulphuric, PVC, and so on) using different insulation materials (cellular glass, polyurethane, isocyanurate, mineral and glasswool, silicate) covered with metal sheets (aluminum, galvanized steel, stainless steel) or coated with mastics, elastomers, composites, cement, and so on. Our team is able to provide any technical assistance and execute any insulation and fireprotection work in the fields of chemical and petrochemical plants.

Storage Tanks
The insulation of storage tanks for fuel, bitumen, LPG and LNG requires advanced techniques and specialization. We studied and executed several storage facilities in the Middle East, North Africa and Iran with the collaboration of multinational engineering companies located mainly in the USA and Japan.

Materials used for hot insulation are mineral glasswool, and for cold insulation cellular glass and polyurethane in panel forms or sprayed on site. The protection is done with metal sheets (aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel) and coating (mastics, composites, cement, etc).

Chimneys
Execution is done according to specifications. 200m chimneys have been executed with firebricks or mineral fibers, others sprayed with refractory cements. Due to the high level of the working area, sophisticated scaffolding is needed and special safety arrangements are always required.
Our team has developed its own technology for expansion joints in chimneys.

 

Power and Desalination Plants
Our team has a vast experience in power and desalination plants. Several boilers, turbines and thermocycles have been executed. Materials used are mainly mineral wood and silicates for boilers and pipes as well as sprayed fibers and demountable fitted blankets for turbines.
Our team has developed our own technology for expansion joints and for the protection of casings against vibration.

Petrochemical Plants Desalination Plants
With the aid of our specialists in hot and cold insulation, we have executed all types of units for petrochemical plants with service temperature from -328°F to +2732°F (distillation, steamcracking, ethylene, ammonia, sulphuric, PVC using different insulation materials (cellular glass, polyurethane, isocyanurate, mineral and glass wool, silicate) covered with metal sheets (aluminum, galvanized steel) or coated with mastics, elastomers, composites, cements.
We are able to prove any technical assistance and execute any insulation work in the field of chemical and petrochemical plants.

Fireproofing
Our team performed a wide range of application in the Passive Fireprotection fields:

  • Protection of steel structure using cementitious, instrument or panels in industry and buildings up to 4 hours rating.
  • Composite fire barriers with penetration seals up to 4 hours rating in several plants onshore and offshore.
  • Installation and maintenance of steel fire doors for industrial and commercial purposes.

A long experience with these various techniques used on numerous projects in the Middle East and North Africa enables us to be considered as an efficient contractor for executing any fireproofing works for power plants, buildings, refineries, LPG and LNG plants, etc.

Refractories
Insulation against the effect of high temperatures requires special technology and large experience in this field. Our specialists can study the physical and chemical process developed for each equipment and installation, and propose the proper material needed for insulation. Our engineers and specialists executed already several furnaces, boilers, kilns for cement factories using the most suitable material for each installation. Within few days, our crew can execute any maintenance work. Special pieces needed can be prefabricated and supplied from our several fabshops.

Building and Sound Insulation
Sound is not only transmitted through air but also through structures. How we perceive the sound is determined by two factors: sound pressure level and frequency. When a sound wave strikes a material, a part of the sound energy will be reflected back from the surface (reflected energy).The better the absorbing material is, the less sound energy will be reflected.

If the propagation of noise from a noise source is restricted, for instance by a wall, it may be reflected and give the kind of noise level which two noise sources would cause.

Our specialists can measure the sound level obtained from different noise sources and are able to study particular problems and propose the most efficient and economical solution. We can design, construct and install baffles, absorbers, acoustic cabins, screens, silent casings, etc.

Prefabrication and Supplies
With fully equipped prefabrication units employing the latest high-tech equipment in Europe and the Middle East, we are able to supply within a few days prefabricated insulation material, cladding fire bricks, acoustical boxes, special parts packed in cartons, crates or pallets, and delivered to job sites ready for application. All necessary documents (invoices certified by corresponding consulates, packing lists, technical drawings and designs, etc) are prepared by us for quick delivery on site and proper application.

The People
Quality in works requires high skilled workers and very strict quality control. A total quality management ensures that our products perform as specified. Constant quality control monitoring, checks and inspections guarantees that these products are installed and work to expectations every time.
