Thermal Blanket Insulation for STEAM systems
Introduction: Shannon’s blanket insulation for steam program improves insulation performance on steam systems, where the existing insulation has been removed and never replaced. Shannon blankets deliver immediate energy savings, with the benefits of quick installation, removal and reinstallation. Problem insulation areas can now be addressed with a highly functional insulation system.
A Unique Insulation System: The Shannon Thermal Blanket System delivers energy savings through a high quality insulation, custom fit to match gate valves, pressure reducing valves, flanges, strainers, steam traps, heat exchanger heads, boiler heads, PRV stations, condensate pumps and similar equipment. This blanket system is CAD designed to match every fitting. We guarantee the fit; the blanket carries an 18-month warranty.
Payback on Investment is about One Year: A typical Energy Survey will show a payback period on investment of roughly one to two years. The enclosed Energy Survey proposal shows an initial investment of $31,031.01 — a payback period of 10 months. An annual savings of $37,895.60 per year and a lifetime savings of $537,402.96. See Energy Survey Sample on back cover.
Added Benefits: The Shannon Blanket Systems will improve steam system efficiency and lower ambient temperature in mechanical rooms, tunnels, manholes and more. Shannon Blanket Systems will also reduce the possibility of employee burns from steam fittings.

Re-install the blanket one time and it has paid for itself: Shannon Blanket Systems are a practical solution to problem insulation areas. If the installed blanket is removed just one time, the blanket cost is justified by the cost associated with reinstallation of other insulation materials. The blanket can be removed and reused numerous times, in minutes vs. hours. The blanket will also minimize down time associated with reinsulation and removal.
How do we initiate an Energy Survey? Your project representative will contact Shannon to arrange a site visit. A Shannon sales engineer will meet with you and the project representative at the site to walk through the steam system. The sales engineer will tally a descriptive list of candidates for insulation; a list of fittings, valves, flanges and equipment. The survey may be 140 fittings or more depending on the work required and system size. The survey may require added site visits to ensure the proposal includes all the opportunities. Shannon will search for surface temperatures greater than 250°F.
Installation: The Energy Survey proposal includes installation. This assures the customer a quality fit and a blanket system installed in a timely fashion and as a turn-key project. The blanket system may be installed by an outside field service mechanic or by Shannon. Either way, the blanket system will match the existing insulation system with good thermal performance.
What do we cover? The Energy Survey proposal will include every opportunity on the steam system that represents a realistic payback, usually between one to two years. Our interest is “Return on Investment.” The Shannon Blanket System insulates piping, valves and equipment where otherwise bare surface conditions would be the norm. Our approach to Energy Savings is tangible, with a minimum 15- year service life and virtually no maintenance.
