Drum Heaters with Rapid Ramp technology feature an accelerated initial heat-up time which quickly raises the temperature of fluids to 100° F max (100º F (± 10º F) / 38º C (± 5º C). Once the blanket achieves 100° F – it reduces power consumption to a lower wattage and maintains the preset 100° F temperature.

Ready To Ship models come standard at 120VAC, but we offer 208, 240 & 480VAC custom solutions.  Anything we make below 120VAC or over 240VAC, along with anything built to run over 24Amps, will be non-ETL.

This could cause overheating.  NEVER add extra insulation to any of our heating products.  It will void any warranty and MAY BE HAZARDOUS.

All Powerblanket® products are shipped FOB Salt Lake City, UT, 84119.

Thermal Load is the amount of energy required to keep a space or object at a desired temperature.  When the environment is cooler than the desired temperature of the space or object, the thermal load is a heating load and is the amount of energy required to be added to the space or object in order to achieve the desired temperature.  All things being equal, the heating load will increase when the ambient air temperature decreases, or when the wind speed increases, or if the space or object is placed in contact with a large thermal mass, like a cold concrete floor.

Rapid Ramp (RR) Drum/Bucket is 100°F (± 10°F) / 38°C (±5°C)
PRO Drum/Bucket is 145°F (± 5°F) / 63°C (±3°C)
Foam Box Heaters 110°F (±10°F) / 43°C (±5°C)
Tote Heaters 145°F (± 5°F) / 63°C (±3°C)
DEF Tote Heaters 70°F (± 10°F) / 21°C (±5°C)
Gas Cylinder Heaters (propane) 90°F (± 10°F) / 32°C (±5°C)
Multi-Duty (concrete curing) from approximately 100°F to as high as 150°F
Extra Hot (ground thawing) 150°F (± 10°F) / 65°C (±3°C)

A few things may cause this: ambient temperature, wind speeds, product location, and possible additional variables.

Yes. The recommended product line for this is our Ground Thawing blankets

Not typically, it depends on depth of concrete or asphalt but this not an advised solution.

Our two best sellers are the BH55-PRO which heats/protects a 55-gallon drum and the TH275 which heats/protects a 275 gallon IBC tote.

Powerblanket products use a patented heat spreading technology that has revolutionized effective heat spreading.  Powerblanket uses this technology exclusively in all of its products.  Powerblanket products are electrically powered and heated through internal preset thermostats inside the insulated blankets.

No, it will damage the heating components.

Yes, a significant part of our business is designing blankets for custom applications.

Overlapping the heating element of a Powerblanket product could cause it to overheat.  If you don’t have an even thermal load will cause overheating.  

All Powerblanket® heated solutions are certified by ETL to UL & CSA safety standards except for our DC, Powerblanket 400 & Heat warmer products.
