Pump or pour liquids with ease using DBK Electric Drum Heaters. We are proud to introduce our new product line of drum heaters that can be used to control, maintain or raise the temperature of materials stored in steel drums.
Depending on the material or situation, the contents within the drum may need to be heated, preserved at a particular temperature, or removed and handled quickly. Our silicone side helps keep the products within the drums at a consistent temperature and reduces the viscosity of the materials to suit whatever needs the customer has.
