Drum Heaters provide an easy, efficient, clean & economical way for the handling of viscous or low melting point solidified materials in Drums. Drum Heaters are mobile ovens heated by flexible surface heaters made from imported Nichrome wire. They are made in rugged designs and stand normal usage in chemical industries. The contents may either be melted completely and removed as a liquid, or they may be melted only at the surface touching the drum walls and removed as a solid block by tilting the drum.
The heating in Drum Heaters is gentle and uniform, and there is no chance of local overheating.
Construction: This Industrial drum heater (vertical model) has a well type, double walled construction. The Inner chamber is made of MS with a heat resistive silver paint finish, and the outer chamber is also made of MS with a powder coat finish. The drum heater is made into 2 semicircular halves, which are joined at one end by heavy duty hinges & clamps and at the other end by a special press fit adjustable lock, The maximum working temp of 250ºC.
The base drum heaters are manufactured in all metal construction and have thermostat control for temperature regulation upto 200 deg. C. The heat loads are purposely kept low to provide even and mild heating most of the chemicals. Adhesives require fairly mild heating Standard Base drum heater has approx. 22” diameter over which all types of drums can be kept. Certain materials do require heating from bottom and hence this arrangement is ideal.
Oil drum heater is heating on the surface of drum to make the concentration and viscosity of the liquid and coagulum inside decreased uniformly. In this way It will be easy to take out the liquid and coagulum in any season.
The flexible drum heater has an Inside Ni-Cr Alloy heating wires. Outside is silicon rubber insulation material for Fast heating and long working life. Ni-Cr Alloy heating wire is wound around the alkali-free fiber-glass. Main insulation material is silicon rubber which is of high heat-resistance and insulation. These drum heater is soft and flexible resulting in snug fit over the drums.
