During the winter months, contractors working in the field must employ extra measures to ensure the work continues, particularly when it comes to ground, foundation, and concrete pouring work. The frozen ground can hamper efforts at digging and increase the labor-intensive nature of the work. An effective way to counteract the hindrance posed by frozen earth is with the use of ground heaters. At On Site Companies, we offer both hydronic and ground thawing blanket heating options for construction projects.
Ground heaters thaw out the frozen ground, making it much easier to dig and manipulate for excavation and foundation installation purposes. The two main types of ground heaters that contractors use in the field are hydronic heaters and ground thawing blankets.
Our Ground Heaters
We offer several ground heaters to thaw frozen ground on construction sites. Our E5000 hydronic ground heater is the most powerful heater in our lineup. It thaws frozen ground, cures concrete, and prevents the formation of frost with great efficiency. The displacement pump on this unit maximizes the flow of air and provide consistent heat to achieve the required ground thawing with prompt speed. It is an industry leader with an 83% heating efficiency. The E5000 is able to thaw 10,000 sq. ft. of frozen ground and cure the same square footage at a rate of one foot per day.
Our E3000 hydronic ground heater can thaw 6,000 square feet of frozen ground and cure 6,000 square feet of concrete at the rate of one foot per day. Our E1250 ground heater can thaw 2,500 square feet of frozen ground and cure 2,500 square feet of concrete per day.
Our Thaw Box can thaw a 54 inch x 60 inch area of frozen ground at one inch per hour.
Ground Thawing Blankets
We combine the use of our ground heaters with standard thawing blankets as an accessory to increase the speed and efficiency of frozen ground thawing operations.
