Our 900 Watt Base Drum Heater is manufactured from 2mm thick mild steel for extra rigidity even on uneven surfaces.
With tapered edges for safe ease of steel drum location and it is protected by a resilient high temperature coating.

The Temperature Adjustment is simple with Analog/Dial knob on the rear of the Steel Base Drum Heater’s control unit. A neon light indicating power on & when heating via a window in the control unit top.

Heat is supplied to this drum bottom heater via a silicone insulated etched foil heater giving a uniform temperature across the platen face. Insulated with 2” of high density “rock wool”, the heat transfer to the base is minimal so it is very efficient.

CHR’s 900 Watt Base Steel Drum Heater is rugged and simple to use.

The 21.65″ diameter of the base drum heater enables it to be used on 55 & 85 gallon drums. The platen fits INSIDE the outer rim of the drum, so it makes direct contact with the bottom of the steel drum.

Heat is provided by a 900W Silicone Rubber insulated heater mat, providing an even distribution of heat to the base.

If a rapid heat up is required or melting solid is involved which require a higher power input, CHR Full Coverage Drum Heaters can be used with the Base Steel Drum Heater.

The design of the silicone heat mat has the drum bottom fitting “over” the base drum heater so it makes direct contact with the bottom of the drum.
