Half Height Induction Drum Heater

Half Height Induction Drum Heater

    New application or replacing a previous heating solution?*

    Can we define the shape & size? If cylindrical what is the OD of the cylinder and length confirmed?

    Do you have any photos of the vessel to be heated?

    Are there any features that need to be accommodated?

    Material the vessel/item to be heated made of?

    Supply voltage desired?

    Amperage available?

    Starting temperature?

    Target temperature?

    Temperature accuracy needed? +/- 5F or more precise <2f?

    Do you require a temperature sensor in the heater? This sensor can work with an existing Temperature Controller if desired

    Do you desire we quote you a Digital Temperature Controller? We can provide both On/Off or PID Logic Enabled Temperature Controllers

    Adhere the heater to the cylinder or do you need to remove it?

    Is the area Classified/Explosion Proof?

    It is the heating application outside? If so, will the heater going to exposed to the elements?

    Quantity needed?

    Any other important details or description of the project?


    Custom Heaters & Research is proud to offer a half-height Induction Band Heater which is super-efficient at drum heating. Utilizing induction the heater does not make contact with the drum and provides fast uniform heating. Simply place the drum heating system over the 55-gallon or smaller steel container or lower the container into the heater. This induction drum heating system uses a single coil within the cylinder’s wall, made from a glass-reinforced resin. The coil generates heat uniformly around the container wall. Since there are no hot elements, the drum heater band remains cooler than the drum being heated. Supply Power single-phase 120V, 50/60Hz AC power.  Heating times depend on the contents. The rate of temperature rise of a typical viscous organic material will be about 20-24°F per hour. This Induction Band Heater is suitable for use in Class 1, Division 1 and Division 2 and is IECEx, ATEX and ETL (UL/CSA standards) certified. CHR Inc. also provides a full-sized induction heater system.
