I just use 1mm alloy with heat blanket pop riveted on inside around turbine with 10mm or so gap.. Its best to support wires or anything that heat prone away with cable ties, either plastic or stainless steel...
Mild steel can be used also to shield but you'll almost have to make your own..
I don't really like heat blankets as it keeps heat in turbine too much ...
These are nice.. I'd try and copy??

stop the heat from radiating from its source....
