Full-Coverage Drum Heaters: INSTALLATION / OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Remove heater from box. Make visual inspection of drum heater. Do not use if torn or damaged.

STEP 2

Drum heater should be placed on a clean, dry surface. Open hook and loop closure on heater and position around drum with adjustable thermo-switch in the upper third of the heater. Heater should be positioned on drum such that it is covering the drum from the floor to the top of the drum. Fasten hook and loop closure so heater is tight against the drum with no sagging or bundling. Cover top of drum with optional insulation cover (sold separately, PN: FGDC55). For larger diameter drums, up to 24.2” (615mm), optional Insulated expansion strips are available (sold separately, PN: FGDHSTRIP).

STEP 3 

For 120VAC model, plug standard 3-prong plug to appropriate electrical power supply. For 230VAC model, terminate power cord to appropriate electrical power supply. The power cable consists of three color-coded conductors, black, white, and green. The black wire should be connected to Line 1. The white wire should be connected to Line 2. The green wire should be connected to earth ground. The power connections must be adequately rated to electrically support the voltage and amperage of the heater. The identification label located on the power cord displays voltage and amperage requirements. Follow all local electrical codes for proper electrical connections.

STEP 4

Adjust controller to desired setting (See page 6 for programming instructions). Drum heaters designed for metal drums (FGDH series) can be adjusted 50-450ºF (10-232ºC). Drum heaters designed for plastic drums (FGPDH series) can be adjusted 50-160ºF (10-71ºC).

DRUM HEATER TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

PROBLEM SOLUTION(s)
Does not heat Verify heater is connected to proper voltage. The identification label located on the power cord displays the heater’s voltage requirement. Check to see if there is a resistance reading (not an open circuit) in heater using an ohm meter.
Circuit breaker is tripping Validate that the circuit breaker is capable of handling the amp requirement of heater. The identification label located on the power cord displays the heater’s amperage requirement. Examine heater and cord for any damage.
Does not fit Confirm that the heater provided was designed to fit around your specified drum. If the heater was designed for the specified drum, please call 1-800-848-7673 or 614-294-3376 for further assistance
Something has lightly spilled on exterior or interior To remove spillage from heater surface use any typical household cleaner, that does not contain any silicone rubber dissolving type ingredients, with a clean cloth.
