Advantages of Flexible Heating Jackets for IBCs

As standard, these jackets are designed for durability in hot, damp or dusty environments, so offer excellent long term reliability.

The standard dual circuit IBC heating jacket is an ideal solution for customers requiring liquids to be heated as rapidly and evenly as possible. The two high power heating circuits enable the top and bottom of each jacket to be separately controlled with integrated thermostats. A super high power IBC heater can also be supplied for appropriate materials.

We can also supply certified IBC/ Tote heating jackets for hazardous areas. These ATEX Zone 1 ad 2 rated jackets use a completely new and proprietary design. Constructed with patented technology using carbon rich semi-conducting heating membranes, safe operating conditions are maintained even in the presence of potentially explosive gases.

Temperatures up to 65°C can be achieved using 220/240v.
No transformers are required as the unit can operate from any 110v/240v ac supply.

Applications for Intermediate Bulk Container Heaters

Some products simply require warming to avoid winter freezing, other require intense process heating to reduce & maintain viscosity. Applications range from melting butter & fat in the food industry to warming waxes, gels & chemicals across industries. An ex-rated heating jacket is available for use in hazardous areas..

Insulated IBC lids are also available to reduce heat-loss to a minimum. These are supplied with a folding flap in the middle for access to the centre fill-cap.

Outer surfaces of each jacket utilize tough, water resistant nylon materials. Inner layers are manufactured using unique coated glass cloths for protection from chemicals and long term temperature durability.

A heavy duty waterproof p.v.c. cover is also available for additional protection when used outdoors.
