DEF Heaters

Powerblanket

December 8, 2011 - Products

Powerblanket's line of wraparound Diesel Exhaust Fluid (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 a barrier of insulated heat that protects against freezing in cold weather environments.

GreenHeat technology is a heat spreading system designed to provide 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. Two standard models are available for 275- and 330-gallon tote sizes, and custom sizes are also available. By maintaining consistent temperature for the entire unit, the heaters ensure year-round functionality of DEF containers, pumps, valves, hoses, and nozzles.

Standard Powerblanket DEF heaters are rated to -10 degrees Fahrenheit while Arctic versions are rated to perform in temperatures as low as -40 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.
