They gave me hose cover called Firesleeve from Parker

It doesn't actually look like the wrap they show on the website. It is basically a tube with orange silicone around a braded soft fiberglass sock.

In the end my braded hose is no where near the manifold so I didn't use the Firesleeve. However, I was thinking it would be good to put over the heater hoses that run so close to the DP. I could see why the thin foil could be good to protect them by reflecting back the heat but it seams like this Firesleeve could act like a silicon oven mitt and insolate the hoses from the extra heat?

It's pretty expensive so I'll return it if it isn't going to help protect the hoses from external heat.
That's the stuff the military puts around combustible fluid lines, I assumed it was to preserve them but hornetball suggested it's to fight a potential fire hazard. I'm inclined to believe almost anything he says
