Manufactured by LMK Thermosafe, Faratherm induction drum base heaters have been specifically developed for use in Zone 1 and 2 rated hazardous areas, and are now stocked by SBH Solutions Australia .
While they can be used on their own, these drum base heaters are designed to be used with LMK Thermosafe's TH induction heaters for drums, and use the same electromagnetic technology as these drum jackets.
As they heat using the principle of induction, Faratherm drum base heaters require no heating elements, with a self-limiting maximum temperature that is dictated by:
- the material being heated
- the surrounding environment; and
- the heating arrangement.
Faratherm drum heaters also feature IP66 ingress protection and no moving parts, making them suitable for use in harsh environments, or where regular cleaning is undertaken.
They can be used on steel or plastic drums of any size up to and including 205 litres. The base plate is smaller than the width of this size drum to allow the plate to sit against the body of the drum rather than on its rim.
