Beat the Cold with Power Blanket

Beat the Cold with Power Blanket

Intech Equipment and Supply carries a wide variety of industrial heaters that help contractors store their materials properly to eliminate waste and boost productivity. Drum heaters provide even heat distribution, prevent fluids from freezing or overheating, and reduce downtime on the job from non-viscous or scorched materials.

PowerBlanket is one of the trusted power blanketbrands that we carry here at Intech Equipment and Supply. They offer drum heaters that can protect 15 to 55-gallon barrels. The Powerblanket BH55RR and BH55PRO offer superb heat and cold protection for standard sprayfoam applications that require 55-gallon barrels.

Drum Heaters vs. Band Heaters

Contractors who work in extreme cold need to keep their materials at the right temperature from the top of the drum to the bottom.  This is especially important when they take everything with them in a rig that often doesn’t have internal temperature control. Band heaters heat drums in just one area, which can scorch its contents.

Powerblanket drum heaters, on the other hand, heat a drum’s contents more evenly and quickly compared to band heaters, using zone technology to evenly disperse the right amount of heat only when it’s needed. They are also energy-efficient and use less power than band heaters, saving you even more money on top of preventing product loss.

Powerblanket Drum Heaters

When you are storing fragile materials like spray foam in a warehouse or your rig, extreme heat or cold can negatively affect their longevity. This results in product loss that increases prices and wastes your time by forcing you to order more product to get the job done.

However, investing in a drum heater can keep your materials at the right temperature while in storage and on the go. By taking care of your products, you won’t waste a drop of your drum’s contents. Powerblanket offers drum heaters that keep your materials protected from the extreme cold so that your sprayfoam maintains peak flow, stays viscous, and avoids getting scorched or burned.
