Flexidrum Heaters

Flexidrum heaters are used to pre-heat liquids in drums or pails to make them less viscous and more flowable. They are suitable heat sources when heat is required to handle liquids during pouring, dipping, coating or mixing operations. Flexidrum heaters are made to brace a drum externally and they are easily installed and removed when needed. Flexidrum heaters are fiberglass reinforced multilayer silicone rubber heaters that are flexible but rugged and durable.

Flexidrum heaters are made of layers of fiberglass reinforced silicone rubber heater sheets. When these sheets are vulcanized and bonded under heat and pressure, they form a material that can withstand industrial rough usage, and is highly flexible, durable and tough. Prior to vulcanization, the electrical resistance wire web and its protective metallic grid (which acts as an electrical ground) are carefully placed between the silicone layers.

Bucan Flexidrum heaters are resistant to most chemicals, fungus and moisture, and can be easily cleaned. The temperature is controlled by a B-200 adjustable thermostat (75°-205°F) or (75°-375°F).
