Drum and Pail Viscosity Control

Drum and Pail Viscosity Control

An easy and effective way to improve flow in containers with surface heat 




There are several types of viscous materials like grease, wax, and honey that are stored in drums and pails. These types of materials are thick at room temperature, making flow difficult during pouring, dipping, pumping, coating or mixing operations.


BriskHeat drum and pail heaters are used to help reduce viscosity of the contents within a drum, barrel, pail, etc.  They are easy-to-install, easy to use, and provide uniform heat that's necessary to prevent sensitive materials from scorching or degrading.
