IBC / Tote HeatersPowerblanket Tote Heaters

If you use IBCs (a.k.a. totes) to store temperature-sensitive materials or liquids year round, then you know that winter poses a challenge: keeping your storage at the proper temperature is impossible without a heating element. However, when you go in search of heating solutions for IBCs, you’re likely to see a lot of electric or steam-heated ovens. Ovens, while however well they may keep your storage heated, are expensive space hogs. There’s a much more economical and sensible option.

Instead of storing your IBCs in ovens, you can use heating blankets specifically designed for IBCs. Insulated heating blankets, such as the kind Global Industrial offers, provide the same temperature control as an oven – at a fraction of the cost.

The benefits of using a Powerblanket® insulated IBC tote heater:

  • Adjustable temperature from ambient to 145°F | 62°C ( ± 5°F | 3°C)
  • Durable and weather resistant
  • Adjustable digital thermostatic controller
  • Safely heat and protect a wide variety of chemicals and materials
  • Insulated full-wrap design
  • Uniform heat to temperature-sensitive products
  • Preserves expensive materials without scorching or burning
  • Prevents waste by maintaining consistent temperatures
  • ETL Certified to UL/CSA/CE safety standards

Innovative Technology for Drum Heating

Powerblanket Drum Barrel HeatersLarge ovens can be used to keep drums and barrels warm, however, they aren’t the best option. Band heaters are another traditional method of heating drums. Band heaters spread heat through metal drums and barrels, but they are inefficient because heat loss occurs out the back. This is also potentially dangerous because the non-insulated band can burn skin. Bands cannot regulate their own temperature and often end up spreading heat unevenly, causing hot spots that scorch the product.

Powerblanket® drum and barrel heaters, on the other hand, work on an entirely different principle. Power blanket’s patented technology wraps the drum in a protective, insulating blanket that heats the drum or barrel to a pre-set temperature. They also produce even heat distribution like no band heater could ever offer. And you can get them at Global Industrial.

Powerblanket® Drum, Bucket, and Barrel Heaters:

  • Work with both steel and poly containers
  • Offer full wrap-around design, providing complete insulation and ensuring equal heat distribution
  • Deliver safe, uniform heat to expensive materials without overheating or burning
  • Decrease and prevent product waste among temp-sensitive materials by maintaining consistent storage temperatures without significant fluctuations
  • Offer energy-efficient GreenHeat Technology™, lowering energy-related expenses and overall project and equipment costs
  • Provide workplace and worker safety by eliminating skin burns

Concrete blankets

Powerblanket ThawingConstruction projects often continue even when cold weather hits. That’s why it’s imperative to have a good concrete curing solution in place. Additives and accelerators can dry out concrete, making it prone to cracking later on. Traditional curing blankets offer insulation only, which isn’t enough when the temperature drops. The better solution is a concrete curing blanket from Powerblanket® at Global.

Powerblanket’s electric concrete curing blankets offer both insulation and heat to the curing process. The characteristics of a heated blanket are the only adequate answer to curing concrete in winter. Additionally, even if the weather isn’t that bad, you can still apply a Powerblanket curing blanket to speed up the curing process substantially.

When it comes to picking the best electric curing blanket on the market, look no further Than Global Industrial.

Benefits of using a Powerblanket® for Concrete Curing:

  • Quickly heats to a preset 100°F | 38°C (± 10°F | 3°C)
  • Provides cold weather concreting strength of 3,925 in 72 hrs
  • Cures concrete 2.8 times faster than conventional blankets
  • Maintains moisture throughout hydrating process
  • Thaws ground and frost from job site prior to pour
  • Maintains American Concrete Institute (ACI) compliance for cold weather concreting
  • Reduces downtime & increase profitability
  • Prevents a freeze cycle
  • ETL Certified to UL/CSA/CE safety standards
