The Shell is an artifact that appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all canon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games. In Shadow of Chernobyl it is named the Flame Battery.

When wearing this artifact the denaturization of proteins happens slower. In other words, the flesh is able to endure higher temperatures and burns less. In itself it is an expensive and rare thing.
