Drum heating elements also known as drum heaters belts or jacketed drum heaters, provide a simple, effective and reliable way to heat the contents of metal drums. Supplied with an adjustable thermostat for a control range of 30° to 150° C
Drum heating elements are used to: preheat process ingredients, melt material, control viscosity and protect against freezing. They speed the flow of liquids, reduce residue, and promote dissolution. Drum heaters are made of flexible, robust fibreglass reinforced silicon rubber which conforms to the drum.
Two or more drum heaters may be used on the same drum for faster warming, Not for “flammables.” Do not use in explosion hazard areas for metal drums only. For best results attach near the lower end of the upright drum. Attach to drum only in areas filled with contents. Do not attach the heater above the liquid level.
