Viscosity Maintenance With the Proper Heating Solutions

Though the beginnings of winter are still a ways off, it’s certainly a matter on all our minds already, especially if you need temperature regulation through the winter. However, drum heaters and barrel heaters aren’t only good for the cold months. In fact, they’re equally important for viscosity maintenance year round.

Drums Heaters and Barrel Heaters: Year Round Uses

Drum and barrel storage is a convenient way to maintain surpluses of all kinds. And when it comes to storing large amounts of material in such units during the colder months, the proper heating solution becomes imperative. Maintaining the ideal temperature range by using innovative heating solutions can also save significantly on the heating costs that go to your warehousing. But as much as all of this warrants the need for great drum heaters or barrel heaters, it only turns out to be half the equation.

Drum heaters and barrel heaters work phenomenally well for freeze protection during the winter months. However, such technology is likewise helpful and necessary for year-round needs, such as viscosity maintenance. The patented approach behind Powerblanket® heating blankets is actually used for a wide range of heating needs.

Harnessing the ability to heat your liquids in the same container you store them in is a significant convenience, timesaver, and money saver.  Often times, manufacturers have to store products in a container entirely separate from those in which they heat the product. Of course, this means that you have to move the stored material from the storage unit into whatever container you use to heat it. In many manufacturing processes, this could represent a time-consuming step. Think, then, how great it would be if this was something that could be altogether avoided with the use of drum or barrel heaters.

Regardless of what temperature-sensitive material you may be storing in your drums or barrels, if it needs to be heated for viscosity maintenance for proper manufacturing, then adding heat is a very important step in your preparations. And there’s no better way to add the heat than using Powerblanket insulated heating blankets?

Powerblanket drum and barrel heaters are simple to install, remove, and reinstall as needed, making the storage and transportation of temperature-sensitive product as efficient as possible, and making viscosity maintenance a snap. What’s more, Powerblanket patented technology offers the most efficient heat distribution on the market. To make a long story short: if you’re in need of viscosity maintenance, look no further than Gordo Sales. We’ve got you covered with Powerblanket heating solutions.

We are here to serve you; just let us know how we can do that.

 

 

Product Use Case: Drum and Barrel Heaters for Viscosity Maintenance

Powerblanket® drum and barrel heaters have uses beyond freeze protection. Viscosity maintenance, a year-round problem, is easily handled by one of our ready-to-ship or custom built solutions.

From Freeze Protection to Viscosity Maintenance

A primary concern we hear from individuals and companies ordering our drum or barrel heaters is the need for protection against freezing temperatures. Dropping temperatures can lead to frozen and ruined products, and ultimately, lost profits. While freeze protection is a huge part of what our solutions offer, it’s not the only trick to save you money.

One of Powerblanket’s variety of uses apply to viscosity maintenance.

Some products need to maintain a certain level of liquidity and require heat. Even when temperatures outside are temperate, it still might be too cool for some products to have optimal flow. The problem arises when manufacturers or operators don’t have a simple means of adding heat to their storage. The procedure, then, usually involves moving the stored liquid from a storage unit to a heating unit. However, this extra, time-consuming step is NOT necessary if you have a good drum or barrel heater.

Powerblanket drum and barrel heaters are easily installed, removed, and reinstalled for convenient storage and transportation. What’s more, Powerblanket technology evenly distributes a regulated flow of heat, preventing the problems associated with band heaters. So if you’re in need of viscosity maintenance, look no further.
