Shannon Thermal Blankets are a custom fit high quality engineered insulation system designed to save energy, retain radiant heat, minimize insulation maintenance and improve the surrounding work environment. Shannon is designed for use in the Food Processing Industry, where a non-porous, vapor barrier blanket system can be chemically sanitized, Sanitary Wash Down. The PTFE Teflon® Film Jacketing complies with the regulations of the FDA – Reference 21 CFR 177.1550 Standards for Components of Articles Intended to come in Direct Contact with Food. Shannon is flexible and easy to install, remove and reinstall allowing quick and easy access to surfaces.
Sanitary Valves, Flanges, Pumps, Instrumentation, Equipment and Complex Surfaces that otherwise are left untreated. Addressing Radiant Heat Loss in a Wash-Down condition.
Food Processing, Pharmaceutical, Bio Technology.
Up to 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 Material is a 176.2 kg/m³ (11 lb/CF) Fiberglass Needled Mat – Type E Fiber. The Fiberglass Mat is encapsulated by the PTFE Jacketing and sewn together, producing a Self-Contained Blanket System, highly corrosive resistant. The Shannon Blanket System includes Integral Wiretwist 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.
