Filter heater wrap

Got another question for you all. I have my filter mounted on a bracket on the side of my tank. I have a topper so it (along with other components) is/are protected from weather/elements. I also have a coolant heated filter head from Wvo designs. I wired a heater wrap (also from Wvo D) up to a switch and have been wondering if I need to have it powered on once on veg? I power it on at start up and have checked it many times before switching and its way hot. Do i need to continue heating filter once I've introduced hot oil from pick up? It seems like between the heater wrap and coolant "priming" the filter I should be able to power it off once its hot/and oil going thru is hot. No? As always, thanks for your input, matt

It depends on the temp and the oil you are using. The heated wrap is to heat what is in the filter after sitting (say over night). If the filter is full of thick or hard oil it will need to stay on till that oil has melted. That could be 5 minutes or 30 all depends on the outside temp and the oil you use. I have seen oil (crysco) that is hard at 80 degrees and I have seen oil that is very liquid at 25 degrees.
