Heat Shield Insulation

Heat Shield Insulation Features & Benefits

Shannon Heat Shield Insulation is a low-cost insulation solution for steam components that facility managers typically ignore. Shannon Heat Shields deliver safety and energy efficiency for steam traps and boiler doors. Create a safer work environment by lowering surface temperatures on critical applications and enhance your V.P.P. (Volunteer Protection Program ) with our simple solution. By delivering a high-quality, proven design, Shannon can improve steam quality and condensate return temperature, which equates to improved production efficiencies and reduced wear and tear on critical assets on the steam system such as steam traps and boilers. Heat Shield designs are application specific; no guessing on what specification works or the quality of fit and finish. Shannon Heat Shields are expected to last 15 years or more. Heat Shields can be removed and re-installed within minutes; it’s easy on easy off giving immediate access for service, inspection or repair.
