Design overview – The heating element is stitched into an insulated jacket made from a flame retardant polyester fabric. The element is insulated with an e-glass fibre blanket, complete with quick release buckles for ease of installation and removal. It is also double insulated for safety. All HISD Side Drum Heaters are supplied with 4 metres of rubber power cable and fitted with either a 0-+40°C or 0-+90°C capillary thermostat.

Health and safety – The heating element is double insulated for safety. Our HISD Side Drum Heaters are manufactured to conform to the EEC low voltage and EMC directives and are CE marked accordingly. We advise that you disconnect power to the heater when the drum is empty, being filled, installed or removed. You must prevent internal pressure build up by ensuring the container is not sealed during use. When using heating products you must ensure your container is adequately vented in order to maintain a safe working environment.
