    Drum heater operating instruction

    1.Composition of drum heater

    The outer layer is composed of high temperature resistant silicone rubber and flame retardant glass fiber cloth. The internal heating elements are neatly arranged nickel-chromium resistance wires.

    2.Product introduction

    Silicone rubber drum heater has good waterproof performance. It can be used for wet, non-explosive gas place, industrial equipment or laboratory pipe, tank heating. It can be wound in the surface of heated parts directly. It is easy to install, safe and reliable.
