Powerblanket Expands its Industry Footprint

Powerblanket - Bring The HeatPOWERBLANKET® MOVES TO A 58,000 SQUARE FOOT LOCATION NEXT TO I-15

SALT LAKE CITY – Powerblanket®, provider of superior heat spreading technology through the use of a patented GreenHeat™ Technology, packed up and moved eight miles closer to I-15 at 3130 S 1030 W Salt Lake City, Utah. The new facility encompasses 58,000 square feet of office, warehouse, and freezer space combined, to better serve Powerblanket® customers.

“This was a very strategic move for us,” said Brent Reddekopp, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Our capacity for improvement and growth was very limited at our old location, and we are very happy to have made this move to a much larger facility to continue developing revolutionary new products for our customers.”

The new facility lays claim to a 50-by-100 foot freezer. Products can now be put under extreme conditions and tested for maximum effectiveness. The room is large enough for all types of Powerblanket® products from the smallest two-by-two foot blanket up to a Frac Tank.

“Having access to the freezer will make a great difference in our testing procedures,” said Joel Fillion, Vice President of Engineering. “We can make sure our products exceed our customers expectations by testing them under extreme conditions.”

Powerblanket® manufactures industrial heating blankets that can be used over a variety of applications including temperature maintenance, freeze control, and concrete curing. Powerblanket accomplishes this with a patented GreenHeat ™ Technology which is a revolutionary heat spreading system designed to provide a highly efficient and uniform distribution of heat while consuming low levels of energy, thus saving money by not subjecting projects to costly cold weather delays. For example, after calculating the savings in fuel and the personnel to build and move heated enclosures, Walsh Construction saved more than $5.43 for every $1.00 spent on Powerblanket® heating blankets during a wintertime cold weather concreting job.

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.

Powerblanket Designs Gas Cylinder Warmers for Controlling Compressed Gas Temperature

Gas Cylinder Heaters by PowerblanketPowerblanket® 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.

Drum Blanket


Drum Blanket strapped onto drum with powerblanket logoOf all the heating devices out there for the protection of drums and barrels, there’s one drum blanket that’s done right. With even heat distribution and temperature regulation, Powerblanket has a solution fit for any occasion.

The Powerblanket Difference

Drums hold a lot of product and offer a durable storage structure for liquids, chemicals, food product, and more. However, when it comes time for temperature regulation, they don’t provide any capabilities on their own. 

Traditional insulation blankets lack the ability to bring your material to working temperature, in addition to inadequately protecting against the savage cold. Take, for example, the need to bring certain types of product to temperatures above the ambient air around it. A typical insulation blanket has no way to accommodate this.

However, Powerblanket has created a drum blanket that can protect your most sensitive products against the coldest cold. What’s more, the Powerblanket drum heater also has the ability to bring your product up to working temperatures. With a thermostatic controller and innovative heat-spreading technology, you can wrap your drum and forget about it.

A Catered Solution for Your Drums and Barrels

The ability to automate your freeze protection is a huge benefit once the cold weather rolls around, and the capability of bringing liquids and other products to higher temperatures for viscosity maintenance, chemical-property enablement, or characteristic integrity is of equal importance. So whether you need a drum blanket for insulation, heat regulation, or a combination of the two, Powerblanket is the clear answer.

Powerblanket® drum and barrel heater blankets offer a full-wrap, insulated design for superior control and freeze protection. Heating sensitive materials has never been easier. Available in fixed temperature or adjustable control.

Wrap anything in a Powerblanket drum heater and you’ll never use another band heater or blower again. Powerblanket heated drum blankets takes the hassle out of heating your barrels & totes with an insulated barrier of warmth from top to bottom.  You also have multiple sizes & temperature settings to choose from.
