Propane tank heater?


Recommended Posts

So now that it's getting colder outside, my 20 pound propane tank forms ice on the outside of it after my forge has been running for maybe an hour....maybe even less.  Has anyone tried and had success with the electric propane tank heaters?   Any recommendations?

                      Thanks in advance,

Get a 30 gallon plastic pail and put the tank in it. Then,  fill it with water? Not knowing where you are located makes me wonder whether this is a valid idea or not. Even if you live in an area where the water will freeze overnight, you could always bring the pail into a warm area and reuse the next day, or pour it into something that needs the water.

That's a GREAT idea......and cheap, too.  I'm in the Chicago area....
