When it comes to freeze protection and heating technology, not all solutions are created equal when it comes to industrial heaters. In fact, some heating solutions are extremely outdated with technology dating back several decades. Today’s consumers are demanding products to be higher quality and they want them delivered faster than ever before.
With this increase in standards, businesses can’t afford to be stuck with old heating technology. Businesses that use older heating technology deal with uneven heating, dangerous heating elements, and the inability to customize for specific tasks.
One of the biggest complaints about older heating technology is uneven heating. Older technology uses a centralized heating unit that emits a lot of heat in one or two locations. The hope is that the heat will spread and keep the entire unit from freezing. This process doesn’t work if you have sensitive materials or a large area to heat. The centralized heat source gets really hot in one location, often burning product and materials. So if your business has sensitive materials and products, older heating solutions are not an option.
Electrical heating blankets with GreenHeat Technology™ are a newer heating solution that evenly distributes heat across the entire surface area. Blanket heaters eliminate hot and cold spots and safely regulate the temperature to keep materials and products from burning. Whether you’re looking for a drum heater, bucket heater, tote heater, pipe heater, tank heater, or valve heater; it’s important that the heat is spread out evenly.
Businesses are scrambling, trying to keep up with a demanding marketplace. This means businesses need to find quick and adaptable solutions to their problems. Old heating technology like band heaters and space heaters are not able to meet the needs of modern industrial businesses. The dated technology of band heaters and space heaters limits their use to a few applications. If your business has odd shaped tanks or large surface areas to heat, older style heaters are not the answer.
The flexibility of electric blanket heaters allows them to be customized for almost any heating application. Custom heating solutions are needed more and more because standard heating products are unable to meet the needs of today’s industrial businesses. If you need to closely regulate the temperature of your products and materials or need to heat a large or uneven tank, electric heating blankets can be customized to solve your heating problem..
Older style heaters can be dangerous. Band heaters have an extremely hot surface area that will burn you if touched. The problem with this technology is once it’s turned on, it’s almost impossible to remove it without getting burned.
Heating blankets are a new heating technology that can be easily added or removed at anytime of the heating process. Electrical heating blankets use reliable, internal thermostats so once they’re turned on, you don’t have to worry about them over heating. Just plug them in and forget about them. When it comes to a safe heating technology, electrical heating blankets are a great heating solution.
