Half Height Induction Drum Heater



Custom Heaters & Research is proud to offer an Induction Band Heater which is super-efficient at drum heating. Utilizing induction the heater does not make contact with the drum and provides fast uniform heating. Simply place the drum heating system over the 55-gallon or smaller steel container or lower the container into the heater. This induction drum heating system uses a single coil within the cylinder’s wall, made from a glass-reinforced resin. The coil generates heat uniformly around the container wall. Since there are no hot elements, the heater remains cooler than the drum being heated. Supply Power single-phase 120V, 50/60Hz AC power.  Heating times depend on the contents. The rate of temperature rise of a typical viscous organic material will be about 20-24°F per hour. This Induction Band Heater is suitable for use in Hazardous Zones 1 and 2 and is IECEx, ATEX and ETL (UL/CSA standards) certified.
