Drum Heaters – Side Drum Heating Jacket HISD

Drum Heater – Side Drum Heating Jacket HISD

Drum Heaters



HISD drum heaters are insulated heating jackets manufactured from Teflon/polyester and are available in a range of sizes 25, 50, 105, 200 litre for both plastic and steel drums or containers with power outputs up to 1200W – designed to provide reliable electric surface heating to the sides of tighthead and open top drums.

This range of drum heater jackets are ideal for melting or reducing the viscosity of soaps, fats, varnishes and oil based products.

HISD drum heater jackets are fitted with either a 0-40ºC or 0-90ºC adjustable thermostat, a 4 metre power cable and adjustable quick release buckles to secure the jacket to a container.

If faster drum heating is required, the HISD drum heater can be used in conjunction with base drum heaters to significantly reduce heating time – HTSD drum heater is a higher power alternative to the HISD for heating metal drums.

When using HISD heater jackets it is recommended the power is not connected when installing the jacket on an empty drum or one being filled – the unit should only be operated in dry conditions and vented to avoid a build up of internal pressure.
