Drum Heaters

Drum Heaters are thin, flexible electrical resistance heaters that may easily be wrapped and secured around drums, pails and tanks. They are made of silicone rubber-reinforced fiberglass cloth laminated around a nickel alloy circuit. This construction provides an even heat transfer, which keeps contents at proper handling or process consistency and limits scorching or degradation of sensitive contents. Custom products available.
