Sept. 7, 2010 — Featuring patented GreenHeat Technology and able to fit nearly any size pipe, Powerblanket says the company's new Pipe Wraps provide an environmentally friendly heating solution for freeze protection and rapid thawing of pipelines in oilfields, water treatment plants, paper mills, mining operations and other industrial applications. These lightweight wraps can be used to heat pipes, manifolds, pumps, hoses and other temperature-sensitive equipment.

The company says the “all-in-one” product design substantially reduces installation time, eliminates the need for multiple product procurement, and significantly reduces labour costs. Installing Pipe Wraps on long sections of pipe will maintain flowability and maximize production even in harsh winter conditions.

The new Pipe Wraps can be provided in sizes ranging from 2.5 centimeters to 2 meters (1 to 78 inches) in diameter to accommodate a variety of pipe sizes. The wraps are equipped with adjustable straps that ensure a secure fit to maximize heating performance. Powerblanket wraps feature GreenHeat Technology, a heat spreading system that uses aerospace heating designs to deliver a highly efficient and uniform distribution of heat while only consuming low levels of energy.

Powerblanket Pipe Wraps consist of heat trace, heat-spreading carbon fibre material, an insulation barrier and an outer vinyl shell — all in one package — allowing for fast and simple installation. By contrast, traditional heating processes involve labor-intensive installation of similar separately procured components, configurations that force heat into long sections of tents, or glycol — each of which are time-consuming, expensive and have potentially destructive environmental impacts.

Certified to all applicable UL and CSA safety standards, Powerblanket Pipe Wraps are powered by regular 120V electricity and are safe to use on metal or plastic pipes and hoses. The wraps are also UV stabilized and are wind and water resistant, allowing flow within piping to continue even in temperatures as low as -50 degrees Celsius (-58 degrees Fahrenheit).
