Shannon Rapid Rise Fire Blankets are a CAD designed, CNC produced, high quality preengineered insulation system designed to protect equipment from extreme (Catastrophic Heat) temperatures not exceeding 2000˚ F (1093˚C). Shannon Rapid Rise Fire Blankets are weather and chemical resistant, flexible and easy to install, remove and reinstall allowing quick access and easy equipment serviceability. Reference: ANSI/UL-1709-1991 Risk Mitigation.
Common Applications and Markets
Motor Operated Valves (MOV’s), Valve and Fittings, Process Systems, Equipment, Controls, Cable Trays, Structural Columns. Oil & Gas Industry, Chemical, Petro Chemical Process
This design is to act as a Thermal Barrier with a maximum service temperature of 2000˚F (1093˚C).
The Outer Jacketing consists of a layer of Stainless Steel Type 304 Knitted Wire Mesh (.011” Dia. @ 16SF/LB – 0.28 mm Dia. @ 3.3 m2/KG) and 23oz/yd² (781g/ m²) Silicone Coated Silica Ceramic Fabric. The inner jacketing consists of a layer of Stainless Steel Knitted Wire Mesh (same as above) on the outside, encasing a layer of 23oz/yd² (781g/ m²) Silicone Coated Silica Ceramic Fabric. The Insulation core is a 128 kg/m³ (8lb/CF) Ceramic Needled Fiber Mat, encapsulated by the Knitted SS Mesh, Silica Ceramic Cloth and SS Wire Mesh, then stapled together, producing a Self-Contained Blanket System. The Blanket System includes an Integral Fastener 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.
