Shannon Thermal Blankets are a CAD designed, CNC produced, high quality, engineered insulation system designed to save energy, retain heat, minimize insulation maintenance and improve the surrounding work environment. Shannon Thermal Blankets are weather and chemical resistant. They are light weight, flexible and easy to install, remove and reinstall, allowing quick access. The key benefit is a user friendly experience on re-usability.
Common Applications and Markets
Valves, Flanges, Pumps, Expansion Joints, Drip Legs, Piping, Equipment and Complex Surfaces that otherwise are left untreated. “Confined Space” applications with high temperature, steam vapor & flooding. Blanket design is CUI: Corrosion Under Insulation Compliant, Hydrophobic, Water Resistant & Corrosion Resistant.
HP Steam & HP Hot Water. This design is to act as a Thermal Barrier with a maximum service temperature of 288˚C (550˚F).
The Outer and Inner Non-Porous Jacketing is a 459 g/m² (13.5 oz/yd²) 100 percent PTFE Laminate The Insulation Core consists of Hydrophobic Supermat™ @ 9 pcf (176.2 kg/m3) Type “E” Fiber, encapsulated by the inner and outer jacketing, with a double sewn construction, producing a self-contained system. The Shannon Blanket System includes Integral Fasteners for install & removal.

Blanket Thickness Surface Temperature Reference
* The above referenced Cold Face Surface Temperatures should be used as guidelines for blanket insulation thickness design.
* The Cold Face Surface Temperature of the blanket should approach surrounding ambient temperature conditions.
* The economic thickness of the blanket should consider blanket cost, thermal performance and blanket design constraints.
* Heat Loss Calculations are based on a 21.1˚ C (70˚ F) ambient temperature using a flat surface condition.
