LMK Thermosafe has developed a first for the insulated drum heater jacket! Its WeatherHeat seam sealing technology means that an amazing IP56 rating can be achieved. To make this clear, this means that it is possible to operate the heater safely with a jet of water spraying at it, and what's more the heater is dust proof. This is why companies such as Fonterra are adopting this product early and changing over to using these jackets in wet areas, and why miners such as Anglo Gold Ashanti are swapping over where shelter isn't always available from the elements.
WeatherHeat technology is available at this time as a standard product within the normal range of drum jackets: 20-25 litre, 50 - 60 litre, 100 litre and 200 litre. The technology can also be applied to custom sizes although not yet to IBC size jackets.
The WeatherHeat jackets have to have a fixed thermostat factory set at 50°C, 70°C or 90°C rather than the variable thermostat of the standard jackets. This means that over time the mass of the contents can reach as high as 60 - 70°C (thermostat and ambient dependent).
PLEASE NOTE that while this product is effectively 'waterproof' in normal usage, it is NOT designed to be submerged!
