Get fast warming from the bottom up using the Faratherm ™ Induction Base Heater that is designed for use with 55 gallon plastic, fiber or steel drums.
How does it work? The drum sits directly on the base heater and can reach a maximum temperature of 255° F. It can be used in conjunction with the Thermosafe® induction steel drum heater (SKU #THERM55) to reduce the heating time required to reach melting point. The Faratherm™ base heater runs on a single phase 240V, 50/60Hz AC power direct wire and must be wired for 120V, which produces a maximum temperature of 127°F. This base heater meets waterproof IP66 standards, which can be hosed down for cleaning while still in operation.
- Approved for use in Hazardous Zones 1 and 2 and is IECEx, ATEX, and ETL certified.
- Can be used independently with any size steel, plastic, fiber, stainless steel or cardboard container up to 24 inch diameter.
- Best suited for use on 55 gallon steel drums since heater uses inductive power factor
- Lower temperatures are necessary for heating plastic or cardboard
Note: The Faratherm ™ Heater makes contact with the drum or container placed on it and its top steel heating plate gets hot. Other models are available with temperature control to reduce the maximum temperature.
