IBC Heaters | Hazardous Area Zone 1 & Zone 2 ATEX Certified
Hazardous Area IBC Heater Jackets
Hazardous area IBC heater jackets with ATEX certification for safe use in potentially explosive atmospheres, including Zone 1 & Zone 2 locations – T&D’s hazardous area container heaters ensure safe electrical heating of IBCs in chemical warehousing and flammable liquid storage locations.
Hazardous area IBC heater jackets from Thorne & Derrick can be used to heat IBC containers up to 55ºC – transformers not required as the heater operates using standard AC supply voltages up to 240V.
In order to assist and accelerate heating times an insulated lid can be supplied.

The CLP Regulation (CE) 1272/2008 aligns previous EU legislation with the GHS (Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals), a United Nations system to identify hazardous chemicals and to inform users about these hazards – these can include chemical substances, mixtures or preparations including paints, inks glues and oils typically stored and transported in bulk containers.
Video By Napo – the dangers of stored chemicals and hazardous area workplace safety are light-heartedly covered in this film. Nevertheless, failure to observe safe working practices and deploy suitably certified heating equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and hazardous area locations can cause catastrophic damage to plant and personnel.
T&D’s Hazardous Area Team are CompEx trained and available to discuss your hazardous area heating requirements.
For further information about safe storage of flammable liquids in hazardous areas and potentially explosive atmospheres, refer to the UK HSE HSG51 (Storage of Flammable Liquids In Containers) and HSG140 (Safe Use & Handling Of Flammable Liquids).
