POWERBLANKET DEF HEATER
Powerblanket’s wraparound iesel exhaust fluid heaters offer
year-round temperature control of
DEF totes, pumps and dispensing
units. Using patented GreenHeat
Technology, the heaters protect
against freezing in cold weather.
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.
Two standard models are available
for 275- and 330-gallon tote sizes.
Custom sizes are also available.

The Active Energy Retrieval
System captures the kinetic energy
generated by a raised vehicle as it
descends on the lift and uses it to
recharge its own batteries. The AER
allows the lift to provide 27 lifting
cycles under a full load, 35% more
than other systems, said the company.
Columns can be operated independently, and up to eight Earthlifts can
be wirelessly linked using Stertil-Koni’s ID Key technology. Once
linked, the multiple lifts function as
one system that delivers safe, smooth
control even when load distribution is
The lift has an 18,000-pound load
