Sanitary food grade thermal blanket insulation for kettles, fryers, ovens and steam components pose a difficult insulation challenge for food manufacturers because they present complex surface geometries and high surface temperatures. With Shannon Blankets and Shields, which are custom-fit for every application, food manufacturers can improve cooking efficiency by evenly distributing heat and make sanitary washdown expedient. Reusable Shannon Food Grade Thermal Blanket also make working conditions safer (i.e., OSHA compliance and lower insurance rates) by lowering ambient temperatures. The thermal efficiency of a Shannon Food Grade Thermal Blanket boosts steam systems, which improves steam quality and the overall manufacturing process. Shannon can assess a food-processing facility with a free energy survey, which may include a utility rebate. Customers typically see a payback within 24 months or less.

Proven Track Record: Founded in 1988, Shannon Global Energy Solutions is the world-leading provider of reusable high-quality, blanket insulation products and services.
