High Performance IBC Heating – Bottle-in-Cage, Bag-in-Box and Greasetainers
IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container) heating jackets are available for use with a variety of IBC. All are made from washable coated nylon outer and custom glass cloth / stitched fibreglass inner and achieve 1 – 3ºC heat rises per hour.#
- For composite bottle-in-cage IBC these can be purchased with either a -5ºC to 40ºC thermostat, or with two 0 – 90ºC thermostats.
- For bag-in-box IBC heater jackets can be purchased in the same versions, and in addition a hi-heat model of the single thermostat model. This size heater jacket can also be used to warm 4 drums on a pallet.
- A number of sizes are available made-to-order for Greasetainers that have pumps or gauges protruding from sides or surfaces.
- For added effectiveness, insulated lids are also available for all options, as are heavy duty PVC covers, and full insulation only jackets.
For medium viscosity product, the addition of an IBC Agitator / Mixer can speed up the rate of heating by moving the harder to heat middle contents to the outside of the mass nearer to the heat source.
In some cases the direct application of heat via an Immersion Heater can offer quick results where the product is able to absorb heat without spoiling. The warming impact can increase when combined with an insulation only jacket.
