Designed to meet the specific temperature demands of the growing Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) market, Heat Authority’s line of wraparound DEF heaters offer an ideal solution for year-round temperature control of DEF totes, pumps and dispensing units. Utilizing patented GreenHeat Technology, the heaters provide filling stations, fleet managers, farmers and other users with a barrier of insulated heat that protects against freezing in cold weather environments.

GreenHeat Technology is a revolutionary heat spreading system that is designed to provide a highly efficient and uniform distribution of heat while consuming low levels of energy. The technology allows DEF products to be safely and consistently warmed without compromising the chemical integrity of the DEF. By applying heat to a DEF container externally, Powerblanket’s heaters eliminate the potential for contamination, localized boiling and purity failures associated with submersible heaters.

The DEF heaters are manufactured and certified to UL, CSA and ETL safety standards, as well as GreenHeat Technology environmental standards.  Two standard models are available for 275- and 330-gallon tote sizes, and custom sizes are also available upon request. By maintaining consistent temperature for the entire unit, the heaters ensure year-round functionality of DEF containers, pumps, valves, hoses and nozzles.

Standard DEF heaters are rated to -20 degrees Fahrenheit, while Xtreme Arctic versions are rated to perform in temperatures as low as -65 degrees Fahrenheit. The insulated GreenHeat design will also provide several hours of extended protection in the event of a temporary power failure. The heaters also serve to shield DEF from damaging UV rays, thereby protecting the fluid even in instances where cold weather is not a concern.

Powerblanket’s heated enclosures are lightweight and easily secured with adjustable nylon straps that provide a snug fit to maximize heating performance. The entire system can be installed or removed by one person in 10 minutes or less. The DEF heaters are safe to use on both metal and plastic containers, and help maintain flow and purity. Built with a durable outer shell that is winter-proof and water resistant, each tote heater is powered by 120V electricity and includes a preset digital thermostatic controller.

Other DEF heating solutions include Powerblanket’s drum, bucket and pail heaters, as well as the Hot Box bulk storage enclosure. Engine and automotive warmers are also available.

TOTE Systems and PCM Capital Announce Partnership to Form a TOTE Tank and IBC Rental Division of TOTE Systems Liquid for the IBC – Intermediate Bulk Container IndustryPRNewswireFAIRHOPE, Ala.Oct. 27

FAIRHOPE, Ala., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ — PCM Capital, LLC (PCM) of Fairhope, Alabama, today announced that it has entered a partnership with TOTE Systems of Ft. Worth, Texas and launched its new website www.totetank.com. The new partnership will operate under the name of TOTE Systems Liquid Division.

Under the terms of the agreement, PCM will handle all sales, distribution, stocking, rental and leasing of TOTE’s complete line of liquid portable tanks and IBC’s (intermediate bulk containers). The new entity will operate under the direction of Mr. Van Finger, a 39-year veteran of the TOTE tank sales and pioneer of the IBC rental / TOTE Tank rental business.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the TOTE Tank brand and product line,” said Van Finger. “TOTE is the name that started the industry over 70 years ago and we look forward to our new formed partnership.”

TOTE Tanks or IBC’s are a more cost effective packaging solution than traditional drums/ barrels. IBC rental and TOTE Tank leasing will be the predominant focus of the newly formed partnership. IBC rental is a more efficient and predictable way to monitor liquid packaging costs.

TOTE is the originator of the concept and manufacturer of shippable, stackable, returnable and reusable portable bulk tanks and stainless steel Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) or TOTE Tanks; which replaced the only other option at that time, the 55-gallon drum. The most common sizes of TOTE Tanks on the market today are 350 and 550 gallon. They are manufactured of stainless steel and are used in the liquid bulk packaging markets including chemical, oil, food/beverage industries and many more. TOTE Systems has IBC rental distribution locations in Fairhope, AL; Nashville, TN; Ft. Worth, TX; Cleveland, OH; and Phoenix, AZ.

HeatAuthority.com Offers Line of Heating Blankets for Drums and Buckets

Their line of drum and bucket warmers replaces conventional band heaters, warming ovens and blowers for heating temperature-sensitive materials stored in plastic, metal and other containers. Utilizing patented GreenHeatTM Technology, the heaters are a much more energy- and cost-efficient solution for maintaining viscosity and flow for stored liquids, including water, chemicals, paint and food products.

GreenHeat Technology is a revolutionary heat spreading system that is designed to provide a highly efficient and uniform distribution of heat while only consuming low levels of energy. The technology allows containers to be rapidly and consistently warmed without creating the hot and cold spots common with competitive products.

Heat Authority drum and bucket warmers provide maximum freeze protection by maintaining a desired temperature through an evenly heated area. The insulated full-wrap design keeps heat in and cold out, working on both metal and poly drums and buckets year-round. By evenly maintaining temperatures, the warmers prevent product waste and reduce downtime.

Powerblanket warmers operate from a standard 120-volt electrical source and are certified to UL/CSA/CE safety standards. The product line fits 55-, 30- and 15-gallon drums and 5-gallon buckets. A PRO model comes with an adjustable thermostatic controller that allows customers to set and manage material temperatures from ambient up to 160°F / 71°C (±2°F / 1°C).

The Rapid Ramp model will quickly heat and keep materials at a temperature of 100°F / 38°C (±10°F / 6°C). These units use full amps to reach temperature, then “ramp” down to about half of the current to maintain that temperature.

Powerblanket provides superior heating solutions for a multitude of applications, including industrial and manufacturing temperature control, ground thawing, concrete curing, and many more.
