Drum Heater – Base Drum Heater IBDR-TSW/C

Drum Heater – Base Drum Heater IBDR-TSW/C

Thermocoax Isopad IBDR-TSW/C base drum heater are designed to provide medium flow and process temperature to 200 litre steel or plastic drums.

The IBDR drum heaters are constructed from a metal housing which has an insulated heating cable within which evenly distributes heat across the bottom of the drum container.

The temperature of the base drum heater is regulated by a mechanical thermostat with an ambient temperature range of -20ºC to +40ºC

An optional insulated lid can also be supplied to reduce heat loss through the top of the container and IBDR base drum heaters can be used alongside the IDR drum heater enclosure to further improve the heater capabilities.

T&D also offer a full range of IBC & Drum heating jackets and heaters.
