PROPANE TANK HEATING
FOR RAILROAD GENERATORS
A large US railroad company that uses Powerblanket heaters is able to keep snow off the tracks by applying the Powerblanket gas cylinder warmers to their 1000 lb propane tanks which power their generators along the railway system. Before using the Powerblanket heaters, the cold temperatures kept the propane from vaporizing, which meant there was not enough pressure in the tank to run the generators.
MOBILE GREASE TANK HEATERS
FOR UNION PACIFIC
When Union Pacific Railroad had freezing issues with their truck-mounted, mobile grease tanks, they turned to Powerblanket for a solution. Powerblanket created a custom heater to wrap and protect the grease tanks on the service trucks, keeping their equipment working even in the coldest Wyoming weather.GET THE CASE STUDY
