Heat Shields

Heat shield cladding systems are designed to protect personnel and equipment against the effects of radiant heat and adverse environmental situations including offshore fields in extreme arctic conditions.

In harsh environments the effects of solar radiation can cause degradation to delicate electrical components, HVAC systems and fuel lines which can lead to problems if the incident radiation is particularly strong or long lasting.

Through their innovative design and carefully chosen components, MTE ventilated cladding systems can achieve an immediate percentage reduction in incident heat flux in excess of 90% making them an ideal solution.

Panels are available with various single skin perforation patterns or in a double skin arrangement to suit a project’s required performance.

The panel’s corrugated geometry is carefully selected to enhance its spanning capacity without detriment to its performance.

MTE provides a full turnkey package for the ventilated heat shield system from survey, design, manufacture, delivery and installation

Typical Single Skin Panel

Supplied in various open area options – 40%,  32% & 23% to give flexibility of system to suit clients individual project requirements and needs.

Panels are designed using an MTE standard profile of 80mm and are typically 1050mm in width and supplied as a framed or unframed option.

Typical Double Skin Panel

Supplied as a 32% open area front skin coupled   with an additional secondary perforated skin to give enhanced heat and wind velocity reduction values   for use in extreme wind and heat conditions.

Panels are individually designed by MTE and are typically 1000mm in width as a framed panel.

MTE offer design calculations to prove heat flux and temperature reductions for given incident heat flux conditions and shield to object separation gaps, as well as structural calculations to prove the integrity of the design for any known environmental conditions.

Our design consultancy – and the computer based tools and systems crafted from more than four decades of design experience and knowledge – means we can solve the most complex thermal, mechanical and structural challenges with the very best in accurate calculations.

Our extensive industry knowledge is underpinned by experienced, practical testing including several jet fire tests and more than 100 full scale fire and blast tests.  Providing a complete end to   end solution, MTE’s design consultancy delivers specialist support as a stand-alone service or as part of a full turnkey project alongside all Fire and Blast and Modular solutions.

With all products certified by Lloyds or DNV, the involvement  of  MTE’s  Design  Consultancy  team at design evaluation, feasibility study, FEED and design for manufacturing stages will guarantee optimisation of engineering alternatives whilst, importantly, combining significant weight and cost saving benefits.

MTE Heat Shields are pre-engineered tested and certified systems which benefit optimised weight and cost savings to the client.

Typical fixing details

Typical fixing details for framed panel systems

Panels are pre-drilled prior to delivery so additional drilling work is reduced thereby speeding up the erection process and reducing site costs further.

Panels are supplied with fixed holes in the bottom member and vertical slotted holes in the top member to allow for panel expansion during periods of flaring / heat exposure.
