Drum Heaters

Drum Heaters (also known as barrel heaters) are the best method for reliably heating and safely storing temperature-sensitive materials without worrying about overheating, burning, or freezing.

Drum Heaters can be designed as a drum heating jacket to wrap around the drum, as a base drum heater for heating from the bottom, or as an immersion heater for direct contact with the contents. Each type offers unique benefits tailored to different heating requirements.

Suitable for water, oils, resin, vaseline, wax, adhesives, foodstuffs, and more, they provide safe, fast, and uniform heating to the entire surface of your container.

By increasing and maintaining the temperature inside a container, drum heaters can effectively alter the viscosity of the materials and reduce unnecessary product waste.

Drum Heaters - An Overview

Drum heaters are devices that are used to regulate the temperature of barrels or drums. They can be used to reduce the viscosity of liquids and gels or to prevent freezing. Depending on the substance, a drum heater can be used to keep a liquid in its liquid state, or to a melted state. They can also be used to reach a desired viscosity that is necessary in a process. Using a drum heater makes sure that the substances in the drum are kept at the desired temperature without the risk of fluctuations that might cause damage to the substance.

How Do Drum Heaters Work?

Drum heaters work by regulating the temperature of the drum contents. This is done by passing an electric current through a heating element, which then heats up the drum contents. The amount of power that is required to operate a drum heater will depend on the size of the drum, and the desired temperature of the contents.

The first benefit of using a drum heater is that it's an energy-efficient way to heat materials. Drum heaters are designed to evenly distribute heat around the entire surface area of the drum, ensuring that all areas are heated evenly. This means that there is no need to waste energy by overheating certain areas or leaving other areas unheated. Additionally, because the heat is evenly distributed, there is also less chance of damaging the material being heated - making drum heaters a safer option than other heating methods.

Another benefit of using a drum heater is that it can help to improve the quality of the substance being heated. When substances are heated evenly, it helps to improve circulation and prevents hotspots from forming. This improved circulation means that the material being heated will be of a higher quality overall - making it more effective and durable in its intended application. It will also reduce the risk of unnecessary product waste due to uneven temperatures.

Finally, drum heaters are also easy to use and set up. Our models come with simple instructions and they are plug & play - meaning that they can be up and running quickly and with minimal fuss. Additionally, all heaters come with built-in thermostats and safety features - meaning that they can be left unattended for long periods of time without any risk of damage or injury.

Applications of Drum Heaters

There are many different applications for drum heaters. They can be used in a wide variety of industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, oil and gas, and more. Some common applications for drum heaters include:

-Thawing frozen ingredients

-Heating viscous liquids

-Melting solid materials

-Keeping chemicals at elevated temperatures

Drum heaters are versatile units, that can be used in a variety of industries. If you are looking for a way to thaw frozen ingredients, or melt solid materials, a drum heater may be the right solution for you.
