Shannon Enterprises has designed a new self-contained, removable protective enclosure called the Shannon Rapid Rise Fire Blanket. The blanket protects petrochemical, oil and gas, power generation, marine, and military equipment from extreme temperatures. Shannon custom fits its Rapid Rise Fire Blankets to match a wide variety of equipment surface geometry. Customers can install, remove, and reuse the flexible blanket enclosures. Shannon can design the new blanket to fit components ranging from actuators to valves.
According to the company, the Shannon Rapid Rise Fire Blanket (model number: HT2000MSiTSiM) exceeds the UL1709 Rapid Rise Fire Test method, which is a rapid-rise fire reaching 2,000ºF within five minutes and maintaining this temperature until failure. Rapid Rise Fire Blankets have not only withstood the test’s minimum requirement of 30 minutes but have also lasted for more than three hours. I
