Providing an efficient heating system the IBC jacket is ideal for reducing the viscosity of a variety of products including fats, oils and foodstuffs.

Suitable for 1000 litre IBC's and 270 Gallon totes for bulk storage of liquids: Heating Jacket warms up rapidly and provides even heat.

Two high power heating circuits enable the top and bottom of each jacket to be separately controlled with integrated thermostats.


The IBC heater is used throughout the world in a multitude of industries from pharmaceutical to chemical, cosmetic to food, the IBC heater is the ideal solution for heating liquid materials stored in intermediate bulk containers.

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.

Some products simply require warming to avoid winter freezing, or reduce viscosity. The single circuit heating jacket is a cost effective alternative when the faster heating times are not required.

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.
