Safe heating of IBC's - even in hazardous areas

Suitable for all types of IBC this heater jacket has quick release adjustable buckles for ease of installation and removal and is designed with upper and lower heat zones, each with separate thermostatic control. This allows for the upper heating zone to be switched off once the content level has fallen below half way.

Unlike expensive conventional ovens, the heater jacket allows the IBC to be heated at its point of use. Once heated the IBC can be moved with the jacket in position and still maintain the temperature for longer thanks to the high efficiency thermal insulation.

With 1000 watts per zone and an optional insulation lid the heater jacket offers a cost effective way of heating IBC's. This Ex-rated heating jacket is designed to heat products stored in 1000 litre intermediate bulk containers. The IBC is an insulated heater jacket, which covers all four sides of the IBC and has an optional insulated lid.

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.

LMK Thermosafe: Flexible heating jackets for drums & IBCs (video)

LMK Thermosafe has been designing & manufacturing specialist drum heating equipment for over 25 years. This video demonstrates how simple it is to use one of their standard flexible heating jackets for your drum heating application.

Simply unravel the heating jacket & wrap it around the drum. Clip the sturdy buckles together & tighten the straps. Set the dial of the themostat to the required temperature & connect the 5m cable to the power. The jacket will quickly warm up & starts transfering the heat to your drum within seconds. The high-grade insulation within all heating jackets is designed to make sure as much heat as possible is going into your application - rather than heating the room. This feature also protects the worker: You will notice that the outside of the jacket feels warm to the touch, but will always remain a safe temperature.

The integral thermostat will constantly control the heating jacket - so it can be left on indefinitely until you need to remove it. Make sure the power is disconnected from the heating jacket before simply squeezing the buckles open & removing the unit. The jacket can be folded neatly & stored safely until the next time you need it.

Flexible heating jackets from LMK Thermosafe are easy, convenient & efficient.
