900 Watt Base Drum Heater


SKU: N/A Category:


Our 900 Watt Base Drum Heater is manufactured from 2mm thick mild steel for extra rigidity even on uneven surfaces.
With tapered edges for safe ease of steel drum location and it is protected by a resilient high temperature coating.

The Temperature Adjustment is simple with Analog/Dial knob on the rear of the Steel Base Drum Heater’s control unit. A neon light indicating power on & when heating via a window in the control unit top.

Heat is supplied via a silicone insulated etched foil heater giving a uniform temperature across the platen face. Insulated with 2” of high density “rock wool”, the heat transfer to the base is minimal so it is very efficient.

CHR’s 900 Watt Base Steel Drum Heater is rugged and simple to use.

The diameter of the base drum heater enables use on all sizes of drums up to 55 gallons (200L). The platen fits INSIDE the outer rim of the drum, so it makes direct contact with the bottom of the drum.

Heat is provided by a 900W Silicone Rubber insulated heater mat, providing an even distribution of heat to the base.

If a rapid heat up is required or melting solid is involved which require a higher power input, CHR Full Coverage Drum Heaters can be used with the Base Steel Drum Heater.

The design of the silicone heat mat has the drum bottom fitting “over” the drum base heater so the heater makes direct contact with the bottom of the drum.

The Base Drum Heater is ideal for so many applications!!

  • Simple and easy to use- just place the drum on top
  • Excellent for Fast Heat up or for High Temperature applications
    • Combine the Base Drum Heater with an Insulated Heating Jacket to gain additional wattage
    • Putting heat directly in the bottom of the drum while heating and insulating the drum with the Insulated Drum Heating Jacket is Super Efficient
  • Ideal for Melting Materials – when only heating the sides of the drum the last to melt is always an inverted cone (little pyramid) on the bottom

Sturdy design is truly built for a manufacturing or work-place environment

A fork-lift and simply place the drum on top of the Base Drum Heater and you are ready to heat.
