Here’s what one Powerblanket customer has to say:

“We are extremely satisfied with the change to Powerblanket barrel heaters. Powerblanket’s unique technology allows our containers of coatings and materials to be heated evenly and quickly, opposed to band heaters, which concentrate heat in one spot and can char product; sometimes contaminating the entire container and rendering it unusable. Their barrel heaters protect the entire container from ambient conditions thus maintaining optimal operating temperature. In fact, our customers successfully operate in the extreme cold conditions of North Dakota in un-insulated trailers thanks to Powerblanket tote heaters. They use considerably less power than band heaters, have temperature control capability, and are a top quality product.”
