Heat generation often needs different and innovative approaches to overcome the challenges of a cold winter. At High-Q Design, we understand the demands of a northern climate. That is why we designed the POLARPAD™ — a portable electric heater that solves the problem of low propane pressure during cold weather by increasing the vapor pressure in tanks and cylinders.
TOUGH ENOUGH FOR THE ARCTIC
A superior design takes care of weather worries. A rigid, outer shell insulates the heater and protects it from the elements. When the ratcheting straps are tightened around the tank, weather-stripping around the edge of the POLARPAD™ forms a moisture-proof seal around the heating element. To inspect the tank underneath the POLARPAD™, simply loosen the straps.
EASY TO INSTALL
The compact and durable POLARPAD™ is installed easily by a single person in minutes, even in severe temperatures. Wrap the straps around the tank, position the POLARPAD™ on the lower third of the tank, and tighten the ratchets. On-tank installation does not require an electrician. And there is no integral on/off switch and no thermostat to set.
DESIGNED WITH SAFETY IN MIND
POLARPAD™ is the first on-tank device CSA certified for propane tanks. The POLARPAD™ plugs into any grounded electrical outlet that is outside the hazardous area defined by governing codes. To meet this safety requirement, the POLARPAD™ comes with an industrial grade cord.
ECONOMICAL TO OPERATE
POLARPAD™ saves you money because it uses less electricity as the outside temperature rises. When the outside temperature drops, the pad uses more power enabling it to do its job of heating the propane tank. A built-in thermostat shuts off power to the POLARPAD™ when the air temperature is warmer than –10˚C.
