Food Processing

Food Processing companies need to prevent condensation so food preparation areas are not contaminated. BriskHeat’s silicone rubber heating blankets are used to create temperature equilibrium, thus eliminating condensation. In applications where ingredients must be heated to reduce viscosity so they can more easily move from one process to another, BriskHeat products such as IBC/tote tank heaters, drum heaters, heating cables, and silicone rubber heating blankets can be used. Additionally, there are often freeze protection issues which vary by facility, requiring BriskHeat’s self-regulating heating cable or silicone rubber heating blankets.

Surface Heater Applications


Food Shortening Melting

Food shortening solidifies at room temperature making it difficult to transport through piping causing production issues.

Food Drip-Pan Condensation Prevention

Food processing companies often use drip pans to collect liquid waste, such as grease or animal by-products, as part of their preparation process.

Freezer Door De-icing

Ice forms on the channel of a freezer door if not properly heated. This interferes with the motion of the door.

IBC / TOTE Warming

Users of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) often need to raise the temperature to reduce viscosity or protect the contents from the cold. Maintaining an elevated temperature ensures materials remain ready for production and easy to dispense.

Drum and Pail 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. ;

Emergency De-Icing and Freeze Protection

The cold weather can wreak havoc on exposed valves, pumps, pipes, bearings, filter housing, and other industrial objects. When these parts freeze, they typically become unusable, and in extreme conditions damaged.

Preheating and Welding Steel

When TIG welding thick steel materials, cracking and weld failures can occur due to the extreme thermal stresses imposed by rapid cooling at the weld point. Preheating prior to welding is done to slow the cooling process and reduce the potential for weld failure.
