Mannheim. Thermamax has developed a new type of insulation system for connection points in engine compartments and exhaust lines. Many components are normally interconnected to make up a complete system – generally using metallic V-Band Clamps of some description. Even an otherwise perfectly insulated system can have gaps at these interfaces, allowing unwanted and uncontrolled heat loss into the engine compartment. Apart from the temperature loss, there is also a risk that heat-sensitive components in the surrounding space may be damaged by the radiated heat. Thanks to the newly developed Tmax-V-Band Clamp Insulation, Thermamax solves these problems in a safe and highly efficient manner: the complete system can be insulated, without compromise, resulting in increased safety and overall efficiency.

Simple and quick insulation
The Tmax-V-Band Clamp Insulation consists of an outer shell in stainless steel, insulated internally with a shaped insulating liner. Depending on customer requirements, the insulation is available with different Tmax-Insulation-Inlays and two different types of fixing systems. In addition to a conventional screwed connection, Thermamax can also provide a new fixing system: Tmax-TwistTec.
Tmax-TwistTec operates like a “sardine can” and uses a specially provided ring that is positioned onto the Tmax-V-Band Clamp Insulation and winds out to ensure effective insulation at the connection point. Tmax-TwistTec needs no additional fixing elements, ensuring simple, quick installation. Non-insulated connections can be easily retrofitted.

More efficient exhaust aftertreatment
Exhaust aftertreatment is improved using Tmax-V-Band Clamp Insulation due to the reduced heat loss providing better operating parameters for the exhaust system.

More safety for „man and machine“
A robust, stainless steel construction protects the insulation from water spray, radiated heat, and stone impact, and ensures total protection from any leaks in the exhaust system. Components in the space are safe due to the minimization of radiated heat. Tmax-V-Band Clamps can also be specified with Tmax-DryTec, the water-resistant insulation material, ensuring no ingress of water spray into the insulation system.

Attractive and individual design
The bold design in stainless steel complements other Tmax products and provides an impressive overall appearance.
