HSSD drum heaters are silicone side drum heaters that are made from silicone rubber with double insulation construction –  available in a range of sizes 25, 50, 105, 200 litre with power outputs up to 1500W.

This range of drum heaters is suitable for aggressive heating applications as the HSSD is moisture and chemical resistant and is able to offer high powered heating performance regardless of application.

HSSD silicone side drum heaters are fitted with either a 0-90ºC, 0-120ºC (capillary) or 0-180ºC (electronic) thermostat for accurate heating and temperature control. The PFA coated multi-stranded resistance wires are suitable or use with materials such as soaps, fats,foodstuff and chemicals as they can be pumped or poured with ease. Printing is also available detailing the exact specifications for the element.

If faster drum heating is required, the HSSD drum heater can be used in conjunction with a base drum heater to significantly reduce heating time. Bespoke versions can be manufactured to meet a variety of specifications and budgets.

Silicone is the perfect material for use in the construction of high powered heating elements as it offers low thermal mass and excellent thermal transfer properties.
