  • 200 liter available from stock

more information

The HSSD - Side Drum Heater is an easy and actual aid to the warming of steel barrels. It has got a higher efficiency than the Insulated Jacket HISD, but no thermal insulating function. For a very quick heating and higher temperatures up to three drum heaters can be used simultaneously for a 200-liter barrel. The Side Drum Heater is available in four standard sizes (25 / 50 / 105 / 200 liters) and can of course be made to measure, too.

HSSD - Side Drum Heaters are suitable in particular to defrost frozen or other products, thus allowing to empty the barrels rapidly. Soaps, fats, varnishes and oily products can be melted as well, respectively reduced in their viscosity. In addition, the 200-liter element can be used in conjunction with the HBD Base Drum Heater to shorten the heating-up time further.

The heating element of the HSSD - Side Drum Heater is PTFE-coated and embedded between two double layers of siliconised fibreglass material. This double insulation (protection category II) guarantees a high electric safety. The optimum contact with the barrel as well as quick assembly and dismantling are achieved by the use of a tension spring.

All HSSD - Side Drum Heaters are delivered with 2 meters of connecting cable and own a capillary pipe thermostat 0 to 120 °C as well as a controlling light. The voltage amounts to 230 V (special voltages possible).

more information

The HSHP – Drum Heater (220 °C) is suitable for steel drums (and with restrictions also for plastic drums). The outer material is a Teflon which is released for contact with food. The material possesses high levels of chemical and acid resistance. However, products such as waxes, soaps and materials with high water content can be heated excellently as well. The jacket is lightweight, robust and free of silicone. The excellent thermal transfer properties due to the perfect fit result in homogenous temperatures.

Our drum heater is available in the standard size of 200 liters but can also be made to customer specification.

The heating cables of the HSHP – drum heaters are sewn into a jacket of waterproof and teflon-coated polyester. Quick-release latches guarantee an optimal contact with the drum itself as well as a speedy (re-) assembly.

All HSHP – drum heaters are supplied with a 4 meter connection cable and come equipped with a capillary tube thermostat from 0 bis 220 °C as a standard. The supply-voltage is 230 V (special voltages possible).

All HSHP-drum heaters are stamped with the CE-mark, are EMV-compatible and comply with the current EU-regulation for low-voltage.

For safety reasons we recommend to separate the electricity supply from the drum heater when the drum is empty or during the filling process, or during the installation or the disassembly of the heater itself. The device should only be used in dry surroundings and with a ventilated barrel to avoid pressure building up inside the drum.

HBD - Base Drum Heater (up to 150 °C)

HBD - Base Drum Heaters are particularly suitable for warming up of soaps, fats, varnishes, waxes and oil-based materials.

  • rugged steel construction
  • floor insulation
  • even heat distribution
  • easy handling
  • 2 meter cable
  • standard 230 V - special voltages possible
  • IP40 protection
  • suitable for 200 l-barrels
  • thermostat adjustable from 0 to 150 °C
  • combinable with barrel heating types HSSD, HISD, HTSD
  • short delivery time

more information

HBD - Base Drum Heaters are especially designed to heat up soaps, fats, paints, waxes and oil-based materials. The design of the heater is designed for 200 l steel drums. With restrictions on the heating efficiency also smaller barrels can be heated with HBD. The constant temperature of the heating plate is achieved through the use of a silicone mat heater and an additional insulation to the floor panel.

The HBD - Base Drum Heater design includes a conical circulation edge, which facilitates the setting up of a barrel and ensures stability of the barrel on the heating panel. The HBD consists of 2 mm thick steel and therefore possesses a high degree of stability. The temperature is set via a rotary controller; two LEDs indicate the presence of the supply voltage and the operating condition of the heater. Base drum heaters use a 0 ° to 150 °C capillary pipe thermostat.

All Base Drum Heater are supplied with 2 meter long connection cables. The supply voltage is 230 V (special voltages possible).
