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 drum heater band 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 Class 1, Division 1 and Division 2 and is IECEx, ATEX and ETL (UL/CSA standards) certified. CHR Inc. also provides a full-sized induction heater system.
