Transcript: In the oil and gas industry, winter means frozen pipes and faulty equipment. Ever considered how much cold weather costs your business?

McADA did. As a fracking fluids heating company, the company used to heat its truck mounted propane tanks with tarps and space heaters. It was a slow process and limited the number of customers they could serve. They turned to Powerblanket for a better solution.

With Powerblanket heaters, McADA now services customers faster, even in colder conditions, and reduced its service costs while growing its business. The custom heaters paid for themselves in just two weeks.

Or consider a large energy service provider that faced losing thousands of dollars in profits a day if their wellhead pressure transmitters froze. Powerblanket stepped in and designed custom heaters that eliminated the threat of frozen pressure transmitters–forever.

Powerblanket® heaters can be tailored or custom designed to fit any job, and any weather condition.Face cold weather with confidence. Let Powerblanket weatherproof your business for good.

Powerblanket manufactures heating blankets that are built precisely for your needs. Most often, those needs can be fulfilled in our standard line of high quality products.

Powerblanket: A One-stop Heat Shop

Powerblanket is the answer for every heating need:

  • Oil Flow: Cold air temperatures will increase the viscosity of oil until it runs like sludge. Powerblanket heating wraps can hold fluids at optimum flowing temperatures, freeing up your oil to move through pipelines.
  • Storage: Natural gas and propane both naturally condense in cold weather, lessening pressure in the tanks they’re stored in. This reduces the gas’ ability to vaporize and exit the storage tank, giving you less gas to work with. Heating blankets fix this problem by preventing the storage tanks from getting too cold, maintaining pressure and increasing the amount of gas that vaporizes.oil and gas
  • Valve Freezes: Valves are virtually guaranteed to freeze up during winter months, especially in environments where moisture in the air is a factor. Not being able to open and close a valve is more than lost time; it’s also a serious safety issue. Keeping the valves warm will prevent this from happening. Powerblanket’s heating blankets can be wrapped around valves, bringing heat in to stop ice from building up. The blankets can be fitted specifically to each valve, allowing easy access to the valve without having to remove the blanket for use.
