Product Overview for Drum Heaters

Drum heaters and container heaters are used to heat up liquids in drums, canisters, buckets, hobbocks and IBC containers. Thereby the viscosity can be reduced to allow for easy pumping and crystallisation can be avoided. Structure      
Winkler drum heaters and container heaters are flexible heating mats, that are intalled directly on the container to be heated. Thus they allow a very efficient and space-saving heating of drums and IBC containers directly on site. The regular spacing of heating cable and the integrated control avoid overheating of the container and its contents. The robust design and high quality materials and components ensure a safe and reliable operation.
Features and BenefitsLight, compact, economical.

  • Easy and quick installation with a flick of the wrist.    
  • Adjustable fasteners adapt to different sizes of containers.    
  • Efficient and gentle heating through direct contact and integrated insulation.
  • Special solutions with different dimensions and electrical specifications upon request.
