The AeroTek Cradle is a cost-effective way to protect pipe insulation from support point abrasion in hot or cold services. Fiber reinforced, vinyl ester resin is molded to the exact dimensions of the insulation system. The composite cradle is banded to the piping assembly at the support locations using stainless steel bands. The bands are recessed in grooves cut into the outer surface of the cradle to prevent contact with the support underneath. Full scale laboratory testing indicates only nominal wear of the cradle after simulated multi-year service.
