Drum and Pail Viscosity Control

Drum and Pail Viscosity Control

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

 Drum Pail Heaters Viscosity Control


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.


Use BriskHeat Drum and Pail Heaters to help reduce the viscosity levels in containers. They are easy-to-install, use, and provide uniform heat around the container. Uniform, even heat is necessary to prevent sensitive materials from scorching or degrading.
