JM'18 Industrial Insulation Masters

JM Masters course at South Shore Harbor resort

The annual JM Masters Course was held this year on March 14 & 15, in South Shore Harbor Resort, League City in Texas - a beautiful venue with a view out over the moored boats.

This workshop - offered at no cost to the participants - is not only a networking opportunity for up to 100 invited attendees, but also an opportunity to hear from recognized experts in industrial insulation; and to have time to ask questions, discuss options. 

Equally valuable were perspectives from owners, EPC, contractors and suppliers; and a short version of HP magazine's 2018 HPI Forecast webinar.

A significant new initiative was presented by the National Insulation Association, namely their Thermal Insulator Inspection Program for certifying inspectors.

Speakers covered ASTM standards, Non-Destructive Examination (NDE), Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI), tracing,  testing, installation, certification. The two-day agenda:

  • Understanding ATSM Corrosion Tests
  • NDE methods for testing CUI
  • Metal Jacketing Systems
  • PIR (polyisocyanurate) systems
  • Cryogenic Insulation
  • EPC - Engineer's Perspective
  • 2018 HPI forecast for the US
  • Calcium Silicate, Perlite, Mineral Wool, Thin Blankets
  • Removable Covers
  • National Insulation Inspection Program
  • Mastics, Adhesives and Coatings
  • Insulation Contractor's Perspective

JohnsManville plan to keep offering this every year - contact Dayna Martin to be put on their list for 2019.
