Valve Heaters and Warmers

Most valves are built to last a long time, and can withstand considerable fluctuations in temperature. However, despite the durability of well-built valves, extreme cold can affect their functionality in a serious way.

Keep Your Valves Protected

If the valves in your piping system are exposed to extreme cold for a prolonged period of time, you can run into some pretty serious problems. As a result, your bottom line will be in the throws of very expensive downtime.

For example, imagine that one of the valves that sits at an important transition spot in an oil pipeline becomes frozen and fails to redirect the oil in the direction it is supposed to. The results could be catastrophic. Or perhaps even more importantly, what happens if a shot-off valve fails to close during an emergency?

In the end, these possibilities are chances you don’t have to take.  You can protect your pipe, butterfly, ball valves and more from exposure to cold weather and ensure that they always function properly.


To prevent freezing in pipes, valves, manifolds, and instrumentation, Powerblanket has products designed with this specific task in mind. We tailor our custom pipe and valve heaters to fit exactly around your valves, manifolds, and instrumentation. In addition, these heaters provide durable insulation and evenly distributes consistent heat. We can keep your instruments operating in ideal temperatures ranges, warding off freezing completely. What’s more, Powerblanket heaters are easy to install and remove when necessary. Don’t waste energy and money heat tracing your piping system.

In the world of gas pipelines, equipment is expensive, product is valuable, and time is money.

  1. I haul heavy crude oil for a living in Northern Canada. Temperature vary from -25 to -45 degrees Celsius. Do you have a product that would allow me to wrap the valves, pump, and hoses on my semi and Super – B trailer unit that I could wire in to my semi to prevent the freezing up of my system?
    Thank you very much.

  2. Looking for a 12 volt heater for Fire Truck valving, 1″ to 6″ valves, would you offer a heater for this application”+-

  3. I am looking for valve insulation blankets for the valves on the back of water tankers. We haul fresh water in the oilfield in Western ND, and freeze up is an issue. We typically have a 3″ & 4″ buttlerfly valves on the back of our trucks, between flanges. Do you have a product solution for this application?
