Barrel Heaters

Volatile liquids need to be kept at the correct temperature, and the best way of achieveing this, and maintaining liquids at the right heat is through the use of barrel heaters.Barrel Heaters


Whenever you are using liquids in the workplace, ensuring that they are at the proper temperature to perform as required is essential, and can make a huge difference to the way a job is carried out.  If a liquid is too cold, it may not flow properly, or adhere to a surface correctly when it is being applied, and this can cause huge probelsm in achieving the proper finish on a job.  Volatile liquids need to be kept at the correct temperature, and the best way of achieveing this, and maintaining liquids at the right heat is through the use of barrel heaters.


These useful industrial tools are specially designed to apply an even heat to the outside of a standard 55 gallon drum without creating hotspots.  There are a number of different designs of barrel heater available that can be used to get the liquid to the right temperature, but the most important factor to consider when choosing the right system for your needs is to ensure that the barrel heater that you choose does not create any opportunity for a volatile or flammable liquid to catch fire


The power for a barrel heater can be supplied from a standard mains supply, and is delivered through a surge protected cable.  A normal barrel heater clamps around the outside of a standard 55 gallon drum, and a set of heating elements inside the unit provide a source of heat that can be controlled.  Most heaters include a thermostat that automatically regulates the temperature that the barrel is heated to the right temperature.


Depending on your specific needs related to the materials that you are using in your factory, there are a number of different barrel heaters available to choose from.  The key difference between the different models is the range of different temperatures that they are capable of heating the barrel up to.  There are generally two different types of barrel heater available, and the main difference between them is the range of different temperatures that they can heat a liquid up to.   Using a 460 Volt Supply, and 4,400 watts, the most powerful units are capable of producing extremely high temperatures up to 550 F, and ensuring that particularly viscous liquids can be thinned enough to be extrtemely thin, and easy to use.


The power for a barrel heater can be supplied from a standard mains supply, and is delivered through a surge protected cable.  The controls for the heater are completely straightforward, and allow for the system to be set to the desired temperature in a matter of just a few seconds.


When using a barrel heater in your workplace, safety should always be one of your main priorities, and despite the various safety procedures that are in place thanks to the design of the heaters, it is still important to make sure that you pay attention to the heat of the unit, and are always aware of the risks involved with any volatile chemical.  It is vitally important that barrel heaters are not used with liquids that create flammable vapors, as the elements can get hot enough to cause the gas to ignite and cause a fire.


Despite this small risk, provided that proper care is taken, the range of barrel heaters are an important part of ensuing the best possible use of materiuals in the workplace, and will make a big difference to the quality of work that you will be able to carry out with your materials.
