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.

 

Maintaining Viscosity Levels With the Proper Heating Solutions

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.

The Mansfield D1 Expo and Powerblanket® DEF Heaters

Powerblanket recently attended the 2015 Mansfield D1 Expo in Denver Colorado. There, Powerblanket was able to showcase the company’s patented DEF storage heater technology to many interested attendees. What’s more, Powerblanket was able to discuss technologies that reached beyond just DEF heaters.

 

The Mansfield D1 Expo and Powerblanket® DEF Heaters

Mansfield’s Expo

This year’s Mansfield D1 Expo was one of the biggest yet. Mansfield Oil is a national leader in the industries of energy supply, logistics, and services enterprise. As part of their focus on partnering with clients in order to provide innovative, technology-based solutions, Mansfield has put on this expo every year for six years now.

At this year’s sixth annual retreat for their partners, Mansfield offered plenty to capture participants’ interests, especially in regards to petroleum, ethanol, biodiesel, and DEF trends. The 2015 show had industry experts speaking about trends in the DEF and petroleum industry, it hosted showcased vendors of related products and services, and it focused on transportation & fuel additives. The show was packed with entertainment and information all.

Of all the matters addressed at is year’s show, DEF was a major focus. With Powerblanket DEF heating solutions present, participants and attendees were able to see firsthand the protective qualities of the Powerblanket solution. With DEF storage trending towards mini-bulk quantities as large as 600-4500 gallons for the trucking industry alone, the need to protect this valuable asset became all the more apparent at the Powerblanket booth.

“It was a privilege rubbing shoulders with so many experts in the DEF and Petro-Chemical industries,” said Justin Montoya, Powerblanket DEF Heating Solutions specialist. “We were thrilled with the interest in our products, including both DEF and our extensive product line for other applications.”

 

 

Further Contributions from Powerblanket

With the transportation and agricultural industries primed to start needing more DEF solutions, and with additional fuel additives complicating the process of viscosity maintenance, Powerblanket is ready to offer more than just DEF heaters.

Equally beneficial to the presence of Powerblanket DEF heaters at the Mansfield expo was the inclusion and discussion around the many Powerblanket heating solutions offered, DEF storage heaters being only one among many. Powerblanket provides a myriad of ready-to-ship heating solutions, but we also offer a completely customized approach to our heating technology. So regardless of what it is you need to warm or heat, Powerblanket has you covered.

Product Use Case: Drum and Barrel Heaters for Viscosity Maintenance

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

 

Product Use Case- Drum and Barrel Heaters for Viscosity Maintenance

From Freeze Protection to Heating Applications

One of the primary concerns we hear of from individuals and companies ordering our drum heaters or barrel heaters is the need for adequate protection against freezing temperatures. While this is a huge part of what our solutions offer, it’s not the only trick in the hat. You might actually be surprised to find that Powerblanket technology is used for a myriad of heating needs. And one of those has to do with viscosity maintenance.

Regardless of what you’re storing in your drums or barrels, if it needs to remain at high temperatures to maintain a certain level of liquidity, then you need to pile on the heat. The problem is that often times manufactures 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. We’ve got you covered.
