Drum Heater – Rigid Drum Heater Enclosure & Base Heater Set IDR-IBDR-CON

Thermocoax Isopad IDR-IBDR-CON is a set combining the IDR drum heater enclosures and IBDR base drum heater to provide medium flow and process temperature to 200 litre steel or plastic drums.

The IDR drum heaters are constructed from two pieced metal housing which can be opened and closed via hingers and fasteners.

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.

Using both the IDR and IBDR heaters together ensures that drum containers can be heated rapidly and consistently from both the sides of the drum and underneath.

An optional insulated lid can also be supplied to reduce heat loss through the top of the container.

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