Cold Coconuts: Prevent heat loss with Coconut Blankets

Different jobs come in different sizes, and Powerblanket serves them all. Some jobs are as simple as heating up a 5-gallon bucket, and they’re just as important. So when Dan McFarland at BodyTech Cosmetics needed a solution to a freezing problem with coconut oil, he turned to those who do it best. 

BodyTech Cosmetics, which manufactures handmade skin care products, realized it had a need for Powerblanket’s Coconut Blanket to help maintain temperatures for a key ingredient. Without it, McFarland wouldn’t be able to maintain the high quality of his products. 

We use a lot of coconut oil,” McFarland said, adding that he usually used a microwave or other methods to warm up his oil. He also said doing so was very ineffective. 

At times, McFarland said he had to get creative.

“For a couple of years I had been using an aquarium heater to melt the oil,” he said. The oil is difficult to use when it becomes too thick.

While points are given for innovation, McFarland realized that he needed a solution that was tailor-made to heat up the coconut oil. That’s when he discovered Powerblanket’s Coconut Blanket pail heaters, which he says completely changed the game.

“By keeping out coconut oil melted in the pail it saves having to use a microwave or other inefficient means of melting it,” he said.

The Coconut Blanket is an affordable, dependable warming wrap. Just like BodyTech Cosmetic’s products each pail heater is handcrafted, and can quickly heat up to a maximum temperature of 145º F. The insulated full-wrap design evenly heats material to a steady temperature. It also meets UL and CSA safety standards.

No matter how small the job, Powerblanket’s 5-Gallon Bucket Pail Heater makes a big impact on businesses like BodyTech Cosmetic. For more information, contact a Powerblanket representative today!

Using Warming Wraps in C1D2 Environments

Working in an environment with ignitable vapors is one of the most dangerous places to operate equipment. In a C1D2 workplace, one small spark from a light or heating element can lead to catastrophe. Regardless of the danger, equipment still needs to be handled and used to get the job done, even in cold weather.

Warming wraps are critical to keeping equipment warm and operable, but how do you know which wrap product is safe to use in a C1D2 environment? ETL certified to UL and CSA safety standards, Powerblanket’s warming wraps meet the strict safety requirements demanded in areas where the air can ignite at any time.
