Silicone Rubber Drum Heaters

Backer Marathon drum heaters are an excellent way to heat 55 gallon drums, 5 gallon pails, and other sizes of liquid containers. Various sizes and lengths allow you to heat up practically any drum, pail, or barrel. Uniform heat prevents scorching or degradation of the contents. The silicone rubber band should be placed below the level of the fluid. The easy to use spring lock-up allows movement of the band when liquid levels fluctuate. The band style heater can be used on plastic, steel, or almost any material. Excellent to facilitate the flow of thick oils, greases, and other fluids in very cold environments.
