Energy conservation is an increasingly important issue for the dairy and food industry. Therefore, attention towards thermal insulation systems for plant equipment has grown in recent years. Thermal insulation is the reduction of heat transfer (the transfer of thermal energy between objects of differing temperature) between objects in thermal contact or in range of radiative influence. In this study, a literature review on different thermal insulation material with their properties, types and applications. The selection of optimal thermal insulation has great potential towards the energy saving.
