What is Smoker Insulation? 

Smoker Insulation

When you are smoking and grilling, the temperature is your core issue. The constant temperature and the smoke retained in the grill determine the final result you can produce within the cooking times.

A temperature controller can solve the problem of constant temperature, but more importantly, through the Smoker Insulation blanket to ensure that the temperature does not leak; too high or too low is not good.

How the Smoker Insulation Blanket Works

Smoker Insulation Blanket Work

By wrapping the smoker, the Insulation Blanket can retain the maximum temperature. The maximum temperature of the smoker during operation can reach 800°C, and some products may even have an open flame. Therefore, the Smoker Insulation Blanket must have at least two characteristics: low thermal conductivity and fire retardant.

What materials are suitable for high temperature insulation for smokers?

Composition of the Smoker Insulation Blanket

In many years of practice, we have determined that the following materials are suitable for a Smoker.

Components of the Insulation Blanket.

1. Fiberglass Fabric

Fiberglass Fabric

Glass fiber is a widely used flame retardant material. Under the UL94 test, glass fiber will not burn at 550 ℃, with high mechanical strength and excellent weather resistance. At the same time, glass fiber also has the advantages of easy processing and environmental protection.

However, glass fiber irritates the human body, and it is not a wise choice when it comes into direct contact with the skin. Therefore, coating glass fiber is the best solution to this problem.

2. Silicone Coated Fiberglass Fabric

Silicone Coated Fiberglass Fabric

The glass fiber cloth with a unique silica gel coating combines the flame retardant, fireproof and waterproof properties of silica gel and, simultaneously, solves the problem of the irritation of glass fiber to the human body. This fabric also has excellent electrical insulation properties, aging resistance, oil resistance, and other advantages. Silicone cloth has a temperature resistance of 283°C and low thermal conductivity. It is suitable as a smoke barrier, fire pit pad, ash pad, and fireproof document bag.

3. Aluminum Foil Coated Fiberglass Fabric

Aluminum Foil Coated Fiberglass Fabric

We use lamination or coating technology to provide high-performance aluminum foil glass fiber fire-retardant fabrics. Although the high-temperature resistance of aluminum foil is only 150 °C, the aluminum foil has excellent heat reflection ability, and the maximum heat-resistant radiation temperature can reach 1630 °C. In Smoker Insulation, this material is often used in smoking ovens to provide a more ideal and constant temperature, which is provided by the reflection of thermal radiation, which can make the smoked food have a better flavor.

4. Expanded Body Cloth

vermiculite-coated glass fiber cloth

Intumescent cloth (vermiculite-coated glass fiber), by evenly wrapping high-temperature resistant vermiculite on the glass fiber, forms a protective layer for the glass fiber cloth, which improves the flame breakdown performance, and also increases the coefficient of friction and friction—mechanical behavior. Heaterk's intumescent fabric can withstand temperatures up to 996°C and is ideal as a Smoker Insulation fabric.

5. Silica Fabric

Silica Fabric

The high-silica cloth has a temperature resistance of over 1000°C, which is the most suitable as a smoke insulation blanket for equipment that may appear open fire. Long-term continuous coverage, in addition to the sealing and thermal insulation performance, plays a vital role in controlling the combustion of larger combustibles, such as automobiles, stoves, and other large objects.

Another feature of high-silicon oxide cloth is that it can withstand high instantaneous temperatures. In the field of electric welding, splashing sparks can often reach 1600 ° C, and this temperature does not affect high-silicon oxide cloth. This excellent performance is enough to ensure the safety of Smoker Insulation applications.

You can choose a ready-made insulated jacket, but due to the difference in equipment, the insulated jacket cannot be an exact match. Heaterk's smoke insulation blankets are very easy to process, you can choose the material that suits you, and if you have some hands-on ability, you can make the best insulation blanket for your smoker equipment in 15 minutes.
