Abstract: Abstract: Heat distribution systems are an integral part of military facility and installation infrastructure. These systems include numerous man-holes that represent weak points in the overall efficiency, reliability, and service life of heating infrastructure. This report discusses the demonstration of an insulating ceramic paint and primer applied to coat manholes, piping, and appurtenances at Fort Jackson, SC, and the results obtained. The ceramic paint helps to prevent corrosion and heat loss while also significantly mitigating heat-related safety hazards to workers in the treated manhole. Because these issues are important operational concerns for every military facility, ceramic coatings represent a beneficial facility engineering technology that should be considered for wider adoption in heat distribution systems.
