Barrel Heaters: Their Real Value

Picture, if you will, the following scenario: It’s been a wonderful, mild autumn day. The leaves have changed and are beginning to fall. The smell of Thanksgiving is in the air. Then with little to no warning, the weather pulls a quick 180 and a terrible freeze sets in overnight, suddenly, you’re worried about the hundreds of barrels of temperature-sensitive material you have out in storage.         

If you’re equipped with Powerblanket® barrel and drum heaters, on the other hand, then there isn’t anything to worry about. You’re covered…literally. If you’re using a standard band heater, then the chances are you might need to go check and hope nothing is frozen or starting to freeze. Wouldn’t it be nice knowing that your valuable materials, the materials you’ve already stored in expensive steel or poly barrels or drums, are protected against the worst cold Father Winter can dish up?        

When dealing with temperature-sensitive materials it is vitally important to maintain a constant and reliable temperature, and Powerblanket® state-of-the-art barrel and drum heaters are superior to band heaters, or to any other type of heating system for that matter. For one, the Powerblanket® heaters encompass the barrel or drum entirely, providing overall convection to the drum/barrel – no hot or cold spots; you won’t have to worry about uneven heat distribution with Powerblanket® heaters.          

Furthermore, Powerblanket® heaters comes equipped with an external thermostatic control. The heaters utilize the highly, energy-efficient GreenHeat Technology™, consuming less energy than a normal band heater or storage heaters, invariably saving you money in the long run on heating costs. Powerblanket® barrel/drum heaters can also be much more cost effective than trying to maintain a steady temperature in a large storage facility, for example.         

In short, Powerblanket® takes care of all your heating needs in one easy-to-use, cost-effective device i.e. storage, reliability, consistent, overall heating of your barrels/drums and the invaluable materials stored within.
