Product Spotlight: Propane Tank Heater Blanket

When temperatures drop during winter, it affects more than just our willingness to go outside. It affects all the products we use and store outdoors or in cold warehouses. One of the products commonly left to brave the weather on its own, is propane. And when propane tanks are left in the cold, they don’t work so well.

Winter’s Strain on Propane

Have you ever stopped to think about how cold weather affects your propane tanks? If you store them outside perhaps you’ve been concerned about why they perform less efficiently or stop working alltogether. 

The reason for this is a simple scientific matter. Think back to the physics classes you had in school. Do you remember what happens to most liquids (water being the exception) and gases when they get cold? That’s right, they contract. And when propane contracts in your tank, the gas molecules condense and move closer together. As a result, the tank pressure decreases greatly and it is difficult to get any propane flow at all. 

Powerblanket Propane Heating Solutions

Warming propane tanks causes the gas molecules to spread apart, increasing pressure and enabling your tank to push that pressurized gas out with efficient force and consistency. Due to the combustion potential of a gas cylinder’s contents, how do you heat it evenly and carefully? Thankfully Powerblanket has the answer.
