5 Gallon Pail Heater
One of the most popular containers that are used in an industrial environment is a standard 5 gallon pail. Cheap to acquire, and incredibly useful, they will often be used for a wide range of different tasks, from carrying materials around in a small amount thought to being used as a waste disposal container. One of the most common uses is for carrying materials around on higher levels of the factory, particularly on a production line that is building larger items.
Rather than needing to take the whole drum of liquid up into the higher levels, it is poured into smaller containers, and then can be used as needed. Of course, one of the disadvantages of carrying material in an open pail is that it can dry out and cure in the presence of air, so keeping it in the best possible condition for use is important. This is best done with a 5 gallon pail heater, as these units are able to keep the liquid at a usable temperature for long periods of time without requiring huge amounts of power.
If by keeping a solvent or glue warm it means that more of the liquid can be stored and carried around by an individual worker, it means that that person is able to spend a good deal more time actually involved in their task, rather than being tied up with supply concerns. The liquid filled bucket simply needs to be placed into the 5 gallon pail heater and then it will be kept at a pre set temperature of up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit for as long as required.
One of the main advantages of the latest generation of 5 gallon pail heaters is that they have been designed to heat the bucket from the sides rather than the bottom. Aside from the fact that this allows for a much larger surface area to be handled, and speeds up the amount of time that heating takes, it prevents leaks from the bottom of a bucket dripping potentially flammable liquids onto the elements of the 5 gallon pail heaters, which could cause a fire.
Using a 5 gallon pail heater regularly to keep the liquid in a bucket at a temperature where it can be worked with is a sensible option that will help to minimize the amount of wastage generated by a process, without compromising on the efficiency that staff are empowered to work with. Thanks to the clever design of the unit, and the levels of control given by the thermostat, the heating of the pail is as even as possible, as well as being extremely safe. A minimum of energy is wasted in using the pail heater, and this means that your business will be meeting its responsibilities to the environment, as well as keeping costs under control.
In conjunction with the full drum heaters that are also available, a 5 gallon pail heater will allow you to ensure that liquids are provided to staff t the optimum temperature for their intended use, and this will in turn lead to a much better quality of work being achieved as a result.
