Whether you have oil tanks, water tanks, propane tanks, or tanks that house some sensitive chemical, keeping those tanks, and more importantly, their contents protected through the cold months is essential.
The dilemma posed by cold weather on tanks and their contents is no new problem. Traditionally speaking, tank heaters have been around for a while. However, the proper solution to tank maintenance during adverse weather should address the need for a customized approach. Without this, you may be stuck with a one-size-fits-all product that doesn’t actually fit your needs at all.
Common tank-heating solutions can be grouped into two major camps: internal heating elements and external heating or insulating applications. Internal units usually account for built-in or submersible devices that heat the contents of the tank. External applications, on the other hand, account for a range from insulation blankets to band heaters. Both insulation and heating are exactly what one needs to keep their tank from being effected by the cold. Yet, the traditional approaches mentioned here address this fact through separate applications that, most often, fail to work together.
Instead, the proper solution would offer both insulation and evenly-distributed heat throughout the service area of the tank. In industries like Oil & Gas, where tanks are used for a myriad of purposes, it’s important to have customizable product lines for the variance you may have in temperature-regulation requirements. In other words, you won’t need the same temperature applied to a water tank as you would to an oil tank
