Another good product of drum and pail heating equipment is Thermostat/Infinite Control. Functioning to increase flow rate of viscous materials such as honey, chocolate, and light oils, the Thermostat/Infinite Control is perfect for heating drums and buckets made of steel and plastic.
The Thermostat/Infinite heating control is designed simple. A spring-loaded toggle clamp is connecting both ends for easy installation and removal. The heat is distributed evenly over the entire heating surface with three choices of heating controls, outfitted with neon pilot light and 6’ power cord.
There are two choices of heating control of this type: Thermostat control and Infinite (Variable) Control, both equipped with Three-Heat Switch. Thermostat Control is especially designed for use with steel drums and pails containing materials with good heat receptivity; while Infinite Control is best to use on the same drums containing items that are prone to charring, burning or separation. The thermostat bulb is good to sense temperature in a distant area from the heating elements; therefore it can keep the heat balanced in all parts of the container. On Infinite Control, the thermostat is missing so it won’t keep the temperature in certain preset temp. However, it counts on the three wattage ranges for the heat control. Check out this list below of different Thermostat/Infinite Controls with different voltages, temperature settings and container sizes.
