BriskHeat has added an online Heat Loss Calculator to our website to assist our customers in determining their heating needs. This tool can be used for temperature maintenance, viscosity reduction, or process heating of liquids in vessels or flowing through pipes. Instructions include information required for the calculation, as well as tips to improve system design. In addition to the list of liquids and vessel materials, there is an option to manually customize the properties for materials not listed. This tool considers heat required for the vessel as well as the liquid, adding to the accuracy of the calculation. Ambient temperature and wind conditions that may require additional power are included. Use the insulation options to simulate energy savings by increasing insulation thickness or coverage area.
In March we look forward to International Women's Day (March 8), a global day celebrating the historical, cultural, and political achievements of women. Throughout this month, we recognize women and their success, while raising awareness against bias.

Arcitell® was formed in 2017 as a joint venture between Belcap, Inc. , a subsidiary of Belden Holding & Acquisition, and Acell Technologies, Inc. to commercialize a new technology for cladding materials to be used in the residential construction industry. The result is Qora® Cladding, a lightweight, energy efficient, fire-resistant, and easy to install product (Figure 1S).
Simon Whalley, Vice President of Manufacturing came to BriskHeat in January 2018 providing an overview of the product they would be making and the suitability of BriskHeat’s Vacuum Curing and Debulking Table for producing panels. A few days later, the collaboration began. Over the past 3 years, as Arcitell® continued to develop new products and processes, BriskHeat products have been integrated into much of their manufacturing operation.
Keeping livestock warm, watered, and fed during the winter months can be tough. Most articles say it is bad to use portable heaters in your coop because of fire risks. Ventilating the coop will keep the air dry, but how do you keep the hen’s water from freezing?
Elevators in buildings require special maintenance to deal with snow, water, and condensate in the winter. While snow and water tracked into building entryways and onto elevators are very visible problems that can be addressed with floor mats, it is condensation within the shaft that can cause operational problems. During winter, cold outside air can infiltrate warmer elevator shafts causing immediate and long-term damage to the system.
With the year winding down, we offer our last Thursday Tips and Tricks of the year! Our Tips and Tricks today emphasize the importance of having a winter survival kit.
Anyone who has ever deep fried a turkey knows the bird must be lowered very slowly into the oil. Moisture on the surface will start to boil immediately and can cause burns. What happens with a frozen turkey? If it’s still frozen, the ice becomes water and expands rapidly to steam. The boiling is so intense, oil, which is lighter than water, will spatter onto the hot surface of the burner, then ignited by the flame. This is a serious hazard to both persons and property as the fire can spread quickly.
It's Thursday again which means it is time for our Thursday Tips and Tricks. These tips involve uncanny solutions! For our first tip, if you place a gallon size Zip-Lock bag on your side mirrors you can prevent having to scrape snow and ice off during inclement weather.
We know as it’s getting colder, having a good tip and trick to save you trouble is essential. That’s why BriskHeat’s Thursday Tips and Tricks are here to help! For this week, our tip is to primarily you’re your windshield wipers!

In Ohio as with many areas of the country, we’re used to seeing orange barrels on the highway marking the coming of summer only to see the numbers decrease during mid-fall. They’re as predictable as spring flowers and fall harvest. In cold weather, less and less concrete is poured because the recommended temperature for pouring is 50°F and 70°F. Below that temperature, the chemical reaction related for curing is very slow or non-existent. Above those temperatures, reactions may be too fast causing weaknesses in the material as well.
As temperatures lower, fluids may become less viscous, making them harder to pump or pour. Oils used for heating may need to be warmed so they are easier to handle. Other fluids may freeze, not only preventing flow but damaging pipes, storage containers and flow control equipment. This can result in damage to other equipment, lost production time and higher maintenance costs.
