A drum heater is a practical and effective way to keep your drums from freezing, manage viscosity or warm-up and maintain an elevated temperature of materials inside the drum. Drum heaters come in a variety of forms and types. There's a wrap-around drum heater, immersion heaters, heat-from-below dollies and even full-coverage, insulated drum wraps to choose from. Drum heaters are also called barrel heaters alternatively. Electron system’s barrel heaters are supplied across India including Bangalore, Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Mangalore etc. We are one of the largest drum heater manufacturers in India.

Electron Systems is one of the India’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of Drum Heating Jackets, Drum Base Heaters and Custom Insulated Drum Heating products, which includes both non-hazardous ("safe area") and hazardous area certified drum heaters with ATEX and IECEx certification suitable for potentially explosive atmospheres in Zone 1 and Zone 2.

Drum heaters securely warm drum contents, preventing frost damage and deformation. They provide optimal and uniform heating to drums, assuring viscosity control, freeze protection, temperature maintenance and solids melting.

Barrel Heater Manufacturers in India

A wide selection of drum heaters is available to give continuous electric surface heating to the entire drum, the drum base or the side wall of steel or plastic drums – the heaters keep product flowing and decrease product loss by applying heat in a thermostatically regulated manner. Even high viscosity substances can be heated to decrease residual waste produced by low, cold or freezing temperatures during the dispensing operation of drum media.

Heating jackets give thermal insulation to stored containers to prevent drums from freezing in the winter months and cold temperature storage in warehouses. Drum heating solutions enable quick or gradual heating to store fluids and liquids at constant or critical temperatures.

Features and Benefits of Drum or Barrel Heater

Heating 205 Litre Drums

Drum heaters for new, recycled or reconditioned steel or plastic barrels with a typical 205-litre capacity (45 gallons) — barrels carrying petrochemicals, resins, paints, dyes and building materials for the construction sector may be successfully heated.

The side drum heater is simple to install with quick-release buckles. An adjustable thermostat for maintaining continuous process temperatures or frost protection of drum contents in storage or warehouse settings — 110 volts or 230 volts power supply choices are available.

Customised Drum Heating

Take advantage of the extensive project experience that Electron Systems offers in the provision of bespoke drum heating jackets, quilts and blankets. These products are suitable for use both inside and outside, and they help maintain temperatures during the winter and protect against frost. Internal heating elements and cables, mounting straps, thermostats and cable and plug connectors for powering the heating jacket through a local electrical source can be built into heating jackets during the manufacturing process.

Drum Heaters can be specified and supplied by Electron Systems in accordance with heat loss calculations, vessel size and power requirements. Hazardous area certified drum heaters intended for use in the Potentially Explosive Atmospheres Directive (ATEX Certified) can be supplied. These heaters are suitable for Zone 1 and Zone 2 locations and most temperature classes (T Rating).

Drum Heaters for Industrial and Hazardous Area Containers

Drum heaters, such as electrical heating jackets for plastic or steel drums storing liquids, powders or solids, are available from Electron Systems to give surface heating to containers handling temperature-sensitive and dangerous products. Barrel heaters for liquid, solid or powdered substances are available from us, ensuring that hazardous liquids are transported safely.

Heaters to suit open-top drums (70 to 220-litre capacity) to DIN EN ISO 20848-1 and DIN EN 12714 are available in standard and customised versions. Heating drums carrying paints, inks, dyes, foods, beverages, cosmetics oils and industrial chemicals are common uses.

When the drum is empty, filled, installed or removed, disconnect the heater from the power supply. Get in touch with Electron Systems now!
