Technical Insulation Performance Checks
Save Money, Energy and CO2
The aim of the TIPCHECK Programme established by the European Industrial Insulation Foundation is to provide industry with a standardized, high quality thermal energy audit tool focusing on the thermal performance of technical insulation systems.

1. TIPCHECK - thermal energy auditing

TIPCHECKs evaluate insulation systems of existing facilities, planned projects or retrofits and demonstrate how more efficient insulation could:
  • Save energy
  • Save money
  • Contribute to a cleaner environment through reduced CO2 emissions

TIPCHECKs contribute to energy management systems like ISO 50001 and in addition to energy efficiency potentials can help to identify:

  • Process efficiency improvements
  • Safety risks to personnel
A TIPCHECK is not intended to be a full system analysis. However, it always tends to identify the spots bearing the highest energy saving potential and offering a rapid payback time of most often one year or even less. The scope of a typical TIPCHECK usually includes un-insulated lines, lines with damaged insulation and insulated lines.

2. TIPCHECK training - become a TIPCHECK engineer

Insulation experts of EiiF member companies can become certified TIPCHECK engineers, provided they meet the necessary requirements. In a one weeks training followed by a refresher course every three years they learn how to carry out high quality thermal energy audits according to the TIPCHECK Standard and become part of EiiF's international insulation engineering network.
