It uses the same electromagnetic technology and is designed to be used with the LMK Thermosafe TH Induction Heater for drums, where it has been shown to increase heating rates by up to 40%. It can also be used on its own, or with an insulated jacket as a warming or anti-freeze option.
The principle of induction requires no heating elements and the maximum temperature is self-limiting – this is governed by the material being heated, the surrounding environment and the heating arrangement. In most applications additional temperature regulation is not required, however, control options are available. With IP66 ingress protection rating and no moving parts, it is suitable for use in harsh environments or where regular cleaning is required. This all adds up to an exceptional level of safety in dangerous operating conditions and it has received ATEX and IECEx Hazardous Area Certification for Zone 1 and Zone 2.
The Faratherm drum base heater 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.
