Description
Powerblanket’s 30-gallon drum heaters provide a range of heating solutions for warming and storing temperature-sensitive materials. Our patented design eliminates hot and cold spots by applying uniform full-coverage heat across the entire surface of the container, allowing users to keep their materials at the proper viscosity while remaining at specified thermal levels. Each drum heater can be equipped with either an adjustable or a fixed thermostat. The 30-gallon drum heater comes in two voltages: 120 volts and 240 volts. Choose between three different thermal rating classes:
  • Powerblanket Lite - designed for light residential and industrial applications, low power density
  • Powerblanket - designed for any definitive heating applications, surrounded by a rugged vinyl shell, safe to use in temperatures as low as -20 F
  • Powerblanket Xtreme - designed for harsh climates, safe to use in temperatures as low as -40 F
All of our 30-gallon drum heaters come as an insulated full-wrap design with cinch straps to secure a tight fit. They’re also water-resistant and can be used on poly and steel drums. All Powerblanket products are ETL certified to UL, CSA, and CE safety standards.

VISCOSITY REDUCTION BASICS

Viscosity is a complicated and sometimes confusing topic and understanding how to lower viscosity is a challenge during cold winter months. A fluid that is viscous will be thick, sticky, and semifluid in consistency. Increased friction and/or increasing temperature will change viscosity.

Summary Conclusions

1. The Powerblanket 800 watt drum heater is 180% more effective than the 1200 watt 4 inch silicone band heater (110° F vs. 61° F) in achieving maximum water temperature.
2. The Powerblanket drum heater is 25% more efficient in power usage (660 watts vs. 880 watts) than the 4 inch silicone band heater.
3. The Powerblanket is 497% more effective than the 4 inch silicone band heater in preventing freezing from maximum achieved temperature if power is cut off (164 hours vs. 33 hours)
