An introduction to drum heating oven

The drum heating oven is a great invention for safely heating four or more drums all at the same time. The oven is made with four pallets for storing the drums in one place, and it comes with a fork-lift for easy loading and unloading of the drum containers. It functions by using steam with one thermostat for heating each palette. The drum oven is set at a fixed temperature to maintain solids above the melting point and minimise liquid viscosity.

Advantages of using a drum heating oven

  • Ideal for storing large quantities of drums for as long as required.
  • The temperature can be adjusted to suit your needs.
  • Reduces energy consumption due to incorporating high-efficiency insulation material into the construction of the oven.
  • Can be used for fast heating
  • Increases productivity
  • Suitable for all types of drums
  • High volume, low-pressure hot air circulation system.
  • High thermal designs

Insulated heating jackets

The insulated heating jackets is an electric heater that outlines the heater with insulation to protect consumers when in use. Another purpose of the installation is to maximise energy efficiency so that there is less heat escaping into the air. This type of heater is one of the most efficient in heating consumption. They are specifically created for covering the whole outer part of the drum container.

Induction drum heater

The induction drum heater has a built in wall magnetic steel to produce heat all around and directly through the inside containers.  The steel creates an eddy current to blast out the heat inside the oven.

Glass fibre mats

The Glass fibre mats are implanted with heating elements for heating certain types of drums that are coated with different materials. They can produce extreme heats into the surface. The mats are designed for flexibility to fit different types of coating including a polyester material. They are used for wrapping a coated drum before inserting into the oven. Glass fibre mats are also known as ‘band heaters’. It doesn’t have an extra insulation. Therefore, the heat is reduced through radiation and escapes into the atmosphere.

Drum base heater

The removal of the liquids or solids from the drums often requires a lot of power. To add an extra heat into the drums, a drum base heater can be useful when the drums are in necessary needs of extra energy. The drum base heater comes in different types of heating including steam, silicone mats and induction heat.
