Grimwood Heating has launched the range of LMK Thermosafe drum heaters on the Australian market.
The outstanding feature of the LMK Thermosafe range is the IECEx certified induction drum heater for use in hazardous areas. This is the first time drum heater users have the opportunity to meet world’s best practice in hazardous area protection.
Designed to heat 205 litre drums or smaller steel vessels, Thermosafe is a single induction coil, wholly encapsulated in a cylinder made from a glass reinforced resin specifically developed for chemical plant. The cylinder is simply placed over the drum.
The complete absence of hot elements and the encapsulation of all electrical components enables unattended use, overnight if required. Thermosafe can even be used in hazardous areas Zones 1 and 2, as the heater is unique in possessing full IECEx and BASEEFA/ATEX certification.
Uniform heating without hot spots reduces the risk of product degradation. Accidental spillage does not present a fire hazard and personnel can work comfortably in close proximity. Together, these features allow material to be heated at point of use, which eliminates the need to transport hot drums.
