Advantages of the flexible drum heater jacket

These jackets are ideally suited for the warming of a variety of products including fats, oils and foodstuffs. Used throughout the world by a multitude of industries from pharmaceutical to chemical, cosmetic to food, the heater jacket is the ideal solution for heating liquid materials stored in metal or plastic drums.

The heating jacket is ATEX and IECEx Zone 1 and 2 rated, suitable for hazardous environments.

It is constructed with custom elastomer and silicone coated glass cloth materials and high density fibreglass insulation.
The heating medium uses a patented technology of carbon rich semi-conducting positive temperature coefficient membranes. Safe operating conditions are maintained even in the presence of potentially explosive gases. No transformers are required as it operates using standard ac supply voltages.

This heating jacket is ideal for gentle warming and to avoid winter freezing. For faster heating rates and melting solids at higher temperatures, the Thermosafe Induction Heater is recommended.

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.
