Powerblanket Product Spotlight: Drum Heaters

It’s summertime and heating applications may be the farthest thing from your mind right now, unless you’re dealing with applications that aren’t seasonal—like viscosity maintenance. If you have large quantities of product that need to be kept above ambient temperatures, then you need a solution like a drum heater, and the Cary Company sells a cost-effective and innovative way of meeting that need for you too.

Powerblanket Drum HeaterThe Latest Technology for Drum Heaters

Whether you’re storing chemicals, food product, oils, or any other substance that may need to be kept above room temperature, storing your product in the typical drum isn’t going to cut it. You need a heating solution, ideally one with the ability to heat your substance in the same containers used to store it.

Consider how expensive it is to store your drums in large ovens simply to keep them at the temperature you need. You’ll drop a lot of cash for just one of those ovens, and you’ll still be very limited on space.

Perhaps you’ve never used an oven though. Instead, you employ the use of band heaters. The problem with band heaters, however, is the fact that they don’t regulate temperature at all. They just heat and keep heating, which often results in scorched and burnt liquids. What’s more, you can only use them on metal drums. What happens if you need to heat a high-grade, plastic drum instead? Well, you can’t use a band heater on that thing. Thankfully, there is a much better option than these two, and you can get as much of this option as you need directly from the Cary Company.

Powerblanket® Drum Heaters

You can get rid of your old band heaters and refrain from purchasing an oven because with Powerblanket drum heaters, you won’t need to use any of these other techniques ever again. Powerblanket patented technology works by wrapping both metal and plastic drums in a protective, insulating blanket in order to heat your product to the desired temperature. Powerblanket technology allows for even heat distribution throughout every inch of the application. Since the Powerblanket solution spreads heat by using a thermostatic controller, you can wrap your drum and leave it be, without ever worrying about overheating. And remember, Powerblanket works with poly and steel containers.
