High Temperature, Metal Sheathed
Place the heater over the drum using the hook and chain to hang the unit from the drum rim. Mount unit at base of drum. Tighten the clamp springs after closing clamp to ensure a tight fit and maximum heat transfer to the contents of the drum. Do not allow cord to contact heater surface. Before energizing the heater, make sure drum contents are above the top edge of the heater. If the material level falls below the heater the unit may not cycle and life will be reduced.
115 Volt/2000 Watt and 230 Volt/3000 Watt Drum are equipped with a SPECIAL 3 wire plug for extra safe operation. For 115V/2000W use a Hubbell single outlet #5361 or equal. For 230V/3000W use a Hubbell single outlet #5661 or equal.
When heating a material for the first time, the material temperature should be monitored with a temperature indicating device and the final drum heater control setting recorded for future reference. The material should be mixed to get an accurate temperature since the material near the outside of the drum will heat faster than the material near the center. This initial set-up should be done with the three heat switch set on high. If the material you are heating exhibits excellent heat receptivity you may maintain your desired temperature with the three heat switch set on medium or low, thus reducing power consumption.
Achieved at Maximum setting, Covered 55 Gallon Drum filled with water at 70°F.
