Storing materials in drums and barrels can be problematic for all but the most shelf-stable products. Foods, chemicals, spray foam, epoxies, resins, and other industrial materials often have stringent temperature-range storage requirements. It’s important to store these chemicals at optimal temperatures. Effective drum and barrel heaters eliminate waste and lower costs that arise from damaged materials caused by improper storage. If these fragile materials spend time outside of the ideal temperature zone, the longevity can be drastically reduced, which results in and wasted product. This inflates costs and strains budgets.
Stainless Steel Clamp On heaters are ideal for applications where short heat up times and high temperatures need to be achieved. A low watt density multiform heating element is designed to wrap around the outside of the drum, held on by a stainless steel band with quick release toggle fasteners. Clamp On heaters are light weight, portable and can be moved from drum to drum with ease. If more heat is required, extra clamp on heaters can easily be fitted.
These heaters contain electrical heating elements inside a metal sheath. Before you use a metal band heater, you need to know what type of drum or pail the contents are in and what temperature the contents can tolerate.
