Regardless of what you’re storing, if it’s in a barrel or drum, then you’re storing a lot of it. With such a high quantity, your liquid is probably important to your business. If one barrel goes bad, you’ve lost a considerable amount of product or material.
Most liquids that are stored over any period of time require that a certain temperature always be maintained. If this is the case with your liquid containers, then temperature regulation is an important part of product maintenance. Stored indoors in rooms or buildings already heated for other operational reason, the regulations on your liquid storage may not be a problem. However, most companies that are in the business of storing a liquid in barrels don’t keep them next to the cubicles or front desk. This means that warehouse storage is often the case with most companies.
When the winter months roll around and you have to start heating the rooms in your facilities, the warehouse isn’t going to take high priority, if it gets heated at all. In many cases warehouses are left without any temperature regulation for the cold months, and if your company does have a heated warehouse, it’s likely costing you a lot of money to keep a certain temperature maintained. Nonetheless, if the product you store in your warehouse needs to be at a particular temperature, well, you don’t have a choice…or do you?
Barrel Band Heaters
Actually, there has been an answer to this problem for a long time (not the same as a solution). They’re called band heaters. You just strap then around your barrel and: presto! You have a completely unregulated, half heated, half frozen barrel of liquid. Let’s be frank, this hasn’t solved your problem at all; it’s only created a new one. Unfortunately, band heaters don’t provide temperature control, they only heat up your product. So if band heaters are not the answer or the solution, what is?
Powerblanket® Barrel and Drum Heaters
Unlike band heaters, Powerblanket barrel anddrum heaters apply an even distribution of heat that can be set to peak at whatever temperature is needed, thus providing temperature regulation and not just heating your product to a boiling point.
Additionally, Powerblanket barrel and drum heaters also provide quite the cost savings—whether we’re talking about the alternative of heating your warehouse or using band heaters. Powerblanket’s patented design allows for an economic and efficient distribution of heat within an insulated vinyl shell. This means less energy is needed to maintain the same temperature level. So take a sigh of relief at your storage conundrum and give use a call.
