Shannon Adds Thermal Reusable Insulation Blanket to Lineup

Shannon Global Energy Solutions, North Tonawanda, New York, a provider, designer and maker of reusable thermal and acoustic insulation, has developed a new product for its INSULTECH® line: the Shannon Thermal Blanket for Plastics Extrusion.

Designed to cut down on energy, retain radiant heat and boost safety, facility owners can use Shannon’s model MT850SSi thermal blanket on any style extruder as well as extruder barrels, heads and injection and blow molding equipment. MT850SSi thermal blankets are removable and reusable, and they can be reinstalled after removing them from a component to adjust or service plastics-making machinery. Shannon’s latest INSULTECH design creates a thermal barrier and doubles as a safety feature, while achieving thermal efficiency with a maximum thermal capacity of 850˚F (455˚C).
