Powerblanket® Designs Gas Cylinder Heaters for Controlling Compressed Gas Temperature
SALT LAKE CITY Powerblanket offers a variety of gas cylinder heaters for controlling temperatures of propane, butane, nitrogen, oxygen and other compressed gases. The warmers utilize patented GreenHeat™ Technology to safely and efficiently warm compressed-gas cylinders, thereby maintaining optimum pressure levels. When used in cold temperatures, they can reduce the frequency of tank refills and boost BTU output by up to three times.
These heaters helped a railway company keep snow off the tracks by installing Powerblanket® Gas Cylinder Heaters over their 1000-pound propane tanks that power their generators along the railway system. Before using the warmers, the cold kept the propane from vaporizing, which meant there was not enough pressure in the tank to run the generators. With the warmers installed, the generators were able to run the entire location: Eight snow blowers and two buildings, without any problems.
GreenHeat™ Technology is a revolutionary heat spreading system that is designed to provide a highly efficient and uniform distribution of heat while only consuming low levels of energy.
A variety of gas cylinder heaters are available to fit most configurations of gas cylinders with capacities ranging from 20 to 1000 pounds; custom projects can be designed for larger tanks as well. The warmers are flexible to provide a snug fit, and they are easily secured with adjustable nylon straps. They feature a cinch-top design to minimize heat loss through the tops of cylinders, and their durable outer shells are both winter-proof and water-resistant.
Powerblanket® Gas Cylinder Heaters are also certified products for hazardous locations (CID2 T4). They are manufactured and certified to UL/CSA/CE safety standards, and extend “gas mileage” by eliminating unnecessary refills even in cold weather and harsh working conditions.
Powerblanket® provides superior heating solutions for a multitude of applications, including industrial and manufacturing temperature control, ground thawing, concrete curing, oil-field services and many more.
