If you need to heat multiple containers at once then a heating room or drum oven might be the type of drum heater that is best for your application. These forms of drum heaters are typically more expensive, but they allow a larger number of barrels to pass through your drum heater system which means that your overall process will gain efficiency that should offset the cost of the system, assuming you require this type of system. If your application does not need to produce a large batch of barrels or containers at once, then a drum oven style of drum heater would be a waste of resources and time.
In the case of only needing to heat a select number of barrels, a band drum heater may be the right type of product for your application. This style of drum heater is a heating element that is wrapped around the drum in order to increase the heat of the liquid inside of the drum. This style and other styles such as base heaters or heating jackets are all great alternatives to drum ovens.
If you are unsure what style of drum heater would be the best fit for your application, we encourage you to seek out a trusted, experienced and knowledgeable drum heater manufacturer who will listen to your application in order to suggest the best possible drum heater solution for your unique application.
