High Performance Drum Heating

A variety of options of insulated heater jackets from LMK Thermosafe are available dependent upon the speed of drum heating required.

  • Standard 25 litre, 50 litre, 100 litre and 205 litre drum heaters all have 0 – 90ºC thermostat made from washable coated nylon and needled polyester.  The standard 205 litre version will achieve around 2ºC – 4ºC per hour heat rise.#
  • Hi-heat or Hi-Power 25 litre, 50 litre, 100 litre and 205 litre drum heaters come with 0 – 90ºC thermostat and either coated nylon or silicon rubber outer, and custom glass cloth / stitched fibreglass inner.  These can achieve up to 8ºC per hour heat rise.#
  • WeatherHeat drum heaters which use a proprietary seam-sealing technology to allow use of insulated heater jackets in wet and outdoor areas without additional covers. While our other jackets are IP44, these are rated to IP56 and have three options of fixed thermostat: 50ºC, 70ºC or 90ºC.
  • Induction drum heating for 205 litre drums.  These unique electromagnetic induction drum heaters are made from custom fibreglass and are approved for general drum heating and for use in hazardous, potentially explosive, drum heating areas.  They can achieve up to 15ºC heat rise per hour.#

Additionally, we design insulated heater jackets to meet your specific tank heating requirements.

A variety of alternative heating options are also supplied to meet other price or heating requirements:

  • Silicone band heaters provide higher density uninsulated heating which can meet budgetary constraints for a quick heat solution and are available for plastic and metal 20 – 25 litre drums and plastic and metal 205 litre drums.
  • Stainless steel heater bands for 205 litre drums provide uninsulated very high density heating which can suit some applications.
  • Base plate heaters offer the flexibility to heat drums of different sizes with the same heater, and some products respond well to heating from the bottom plate with or without insulation on the sides. These base heaters are available in 2400w for metal drums, or in 850w for metal or plastic drums.
  • A range of Hazardous Area drum heaters are also available for use in Zone 1 and  Zone 2.  These include Induction drum heating for up 205 litre drums.  These unique electromagnetic induction drum heaters are made from custom fibreglass and are approved for general drum heating and for use in hazardous, potentially explosive, drum heating areas.  They can achieve up to 15ºC heat rise per hour.#
