Pointers for Choosing the Right Metal Band Heater

Metal band heaters are used to warm the contents of a drum or pail so it can be poured. These heaters contain electrical heating elements inside a metal sheath. Before you use a metal band heater, you need to know what type of drum or pail the contents are in and what temperature the contents can tolerate.
