Product Spotlight: IBC Tote Heater

When it comes to storing chemicals and industrial materials during cold weather, you have to make sure your products stay in tip top shape. Many chemicals are particularly temperature sensitive and have stringent guidelines for storage. That’s why Powerblanket® is proud to offer our top-of-the-line tote heaters.

What Are IBC Totes?

IBC totes, or intermediate bulk containers, are reusable industrial containers that can hold a wide variety of materials. They are extremely versatile and can be used for stacked storage, transportation and dispensing. They can be made of plastic, carbon steel, stainless steel, or a composite of these materials. IBCs can also be made to fit specifications for combustibles, food grade materials, hazardous chemicals, and more.

Easy Installation And Portability

Weather and temperature shifts can happen with little warning. Don’t waste your time trying to install finicky, difficult, and inefficient heating solutions. Our tote heaters install quickly and effortlessly, thus saving you time and money.

The Perfect Fit

Here at Powerblanket, we know how to fully utilize the power of heat transfer through conduction. Greater surface area means greater heat transfer. Our heating blankets maximize the surface contact with your tote to greatly reduce heat loss. Thick, advanced insulation will also protect your tote and prevent heat loss all the way down to -40° F.

Weather Resistant Vinyl Shell

Powerblanket recognizes IBC totes are sometimes stored outdoors, where they are exposed to the elements. Not to worry, because our tote heaters come equipped with a tough vinyl shell fully encasing your entire IBC tote. With a weather and water resistant exterior, they are also very easy to maintain and clean.

Even Heat Distribution

Heating fluid materials, like chemical mixtures, can be tricky. Uneven heating can damage temperature sensitive materials, and even create a dangerous environment. Powerblanket IBC tote heaters offer consistent, and regulated heat distribution at a fraction of the cost of other IBC heater alternatives. The heating element within the blanket evenly distributes heat across the entire surface area, eliminating hot and cold spots.

Thermostatic Control

Most chemicals and industrial supplies have stringent storage and temperature requirements. Whether you just need freeze protection, or higher heat viscosity solutions, Powerblanket has you covered. Our tote heaters protect your temperature sensitive materials without the danger of scorching or overheating. All our tote blankets come with a digital adjustable thermostat, so you can completely control your temperature ranges.
