Hazardous Area Drum Heaters

Most drum heaters do not offer compatibility of use with flammable liquid in hazardous areas, but these heaters are designed for use in Class I hazardous areas. You have two choices of heaters, one to be used in T3 area and the other in T4.

Before continuing to the heater specification itself, let’s confirm the hazardous areas in question first. According to Wikipedia, Class I, Division 2 area is a condition where ignitable concentrations of gases, liquids or vapors might be present under abnormal operation. T3 and T4 are terms to describe hazardous areas based on the temperature in the atmosphere. This is especially important when electrical appliances are used, like the drum heaters. T3 area is a hazardous area where 200°C (392°F) temperature can cause flame. T4 exposes temperature up to 135°C (275°F). Any electrical equipment placed and utilized within these T3 and T4 areas should not have its surface reach temperature more than 80% of the temp indicated above.

The hazardous area drum heaters offered here are suitable to use in Class I, Div 2 areas. The T3 drum heater and the T4 drum heater heat your flammable contents safely, thanks to the quality silicone rubber and fiberglass material encasing the heater. They are also moisture proof and long lasting equipped with simple spring and hook fastener to install and remove easily. The smart heater stops heating when reaching 80% of the T rating temperature, suiting the National Electrical Code Article 501.

Other technical specs that come with these hazardous area drum heaters include thermostat assembly with its 10’ cord and NEMA 5-15 plug, ideal operation on 120 volts AC and 240 volts AC at 1300 watts. These heaters are perfect for 55 gallon steel drums, but you can also order for 30 gallon steel drums. Please specify whether you will use the heaters in T3 or T4 areas.

Economy Steel Drum Heaters

There are times when a business needs drum heaters. Winter is a good example. In some areas, things freeze more easily than the others. Especially when your business is closely related to fluid materials, you will most likely need to have a drum heater to avoid your stored goods from freezing and/or to maintain its viscosity.

There are different types of drum heaters, which we will elaborate in the next blog posts in series. In this post, we are going to talk about the economy drum heater for steel barrels.

The said economy steel drum heaters are wrapped in fiberglass reinforced silicone band of 3” wide and equipped with a spring clip to ensure perfect fit when hugging the barrel. These are the least expensive kind of steel drum heaters, yet designed to be heavy duty and long lasting. They are resistant to most chemicals and moisture as well as flexible when needed. Use the barrel heater to reheat the content of your drum or to reduce its viscosity so that it’s easier to pump it out. Wrap it around the lower third of your steel drum and plug it in to the electricity socket. Use more than one drum heater to make it reheat faster. After you are done with the barrel heaters, roll them up to store.

The economy drum heaters are available for 5 gallon to 55 gallon steel drums. You need to use different drum heaters for different drum sizes. Check the 5 gallon economy drum heaters15 gallon economy drum heaters30 gallon economy drum heaters and 55 gallon economy drum heaters.

These drum heaters are great for applications with chocolate, grease, etc. Check them out now.

The Difference between Rain Barrel and Water Barrel

Rain Barrel
Many people often mix rain barrel with water barrel. Although at the first split second you hear it, it may sound the same, but they are totally different types of barrels. Unfortunately, Google and other internet search engines could be equally deceived, too. That’s why we need to straighten that out.
First things first, let’s get the simple fact gathered: rain is one type – among many – of water; while water is not always rain. There are tap water, mineral water, distilled water, sparkling water, well water, and the list goes on. So to consider rain barrel and water barrel the same product is a mistake. Let’s see how these two barrels differ from each other.

Rain Barrel

It is actually easy to define rain barrel. It is a collection system that catches and keeps rain water in a barrel. One can either put the barrel in an open environment to collect rain water that falls into the barrel or take the rain water flow from the roof runoff and direct it to the rain barrel through the waterspout. The latter is the more common practice of rain barrels. You can capture more rain water this way as the water is centralized and straightforwardly directed to the barrel. There is a device needed to connect the rain barrel to the rain water downspout. For this, you can make the rain barrel yourself or buy a pre-made one. Obviously the latter is the more convenient one.

Rain barrels are widely used today especially to save water and bills. People use the collected rain water to water their gardens or to flush their toilets. But the happiest party here is the plants in your garden. Watered by rain is simply a lot better than watered by city water. A natural source, rain water doesn’t contain additives like chlorine and fluoride as in city water; and that’s really what your plants need the most. The second one to be content is you, the homeowner, who can proudly reduce your water bill every month.

Water Barrel

Water barrel, on the other hand, is defined simply as a barrel to contain water. The water barrels here can be of two kinds: food grade water barrel and non-food grade water barrel. The first is dedicated for containing clean, potable water. One will need to ensure that the water barrel they are buying has been made with FDA approved  food safe plastic. This is because not all plastics can be used to contain drinkable and edible goods. Non-food grade water drums such as Black color drums,can possibly leach the color dye contained in the plastic barrel into the food or water stored inside. So as long as the reason to keep the water is not to be used for human’s consumption, feel free to use the non-food grade water barrel.  

Physically, water barrels usually come in closed top drum with two plastic bung caps as the opening. Sizes vary from 15 gallon, 30 gallon to 55 gallon drums with choices of color of white and blue. Rain water barrel has almost the same appearance, except that it has a connecting pipe to go through the downspout and a faucet to dispense the stored rain water when needed. You may choose blue, brown, white or green for these rain water barrels.

Why not checking out our wide collections of both rain barrel and water barrel?

Plastic Resin Information: Others (7)

The last code of the plastic resin identification is code 7. This refers to any other types of plastic that do not belong to the other six resins: PETE (1), HDPE (2), PVC (3), LDPE (4), PP (5), and PS (6).

General Facts:

Plastic resin identification code number 7 is for any other types of plastic resin except the six above. It can also be to refer to combination of plastic resins, such as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene. Others are like fiberglass, nylon, polycarbonate, polyactic acid, and PMMA. Like the other 6 resins, the code is usually imprinted at the bottom of any plastic goods. If you can’t find any recycling plastic resin identification code, it is considered to belong to the 7th category.

Summary of all plastic resin codes:

I’d like to define safety based on two things: food-related and environment-related.

The plastic resins that are safe for food applications, as discussed before, are PETE, HDPE, LDPE, PP and PS. Each has its own limitation, like some need to be disposed immediately after their first use, and some others are reusable. Read the articles about each resin as linked above. PVC and others (7) are not safe for food as they might release toxin to the foods.

Environment-related safety refers to the recyclability of each resin. Most recycling stations accept PETE and HDPE since they are the most economical one in terms of recycling; but the others may be accepted too. Check with your local curbside programs which resins they can handle. PVC and the plastic resin number 7 are probably the hardest and the most expensive to recycle. Code 7 is even said to be almost impossible to recycle at all due to the complexity of the elements.

Which plastic types are you going to use? And what do you do to them as soon as you are done using them? For the sake of our future children, let’s start recycling from now on: reduce, recycle and reuse.

Plastic Resin Information : Polystyrene (PS)

Now we are getting to plastic resin that has the recycling number 6 – Polystyrene, or most commonly abbreviated PS. You can find PS in many different applications in everyday’s life. You find it in the supermarket meat trays, the clear jars, the coffee cups at your office, the CD cases, and even in your kids’ toys.

General Facts:

Polystyrene is a thermoplastic resin that we can find very easily wherever we go. Its appearance can be of two kinds: solid and foam. Solid polystyrene includes CD cases, disposable cutleries, clear plastic cups, light switches, hairdryer housings and furniture like plastic storage cabinets. Foam polystyrene, more known as Styrofoam, includes disposable cups, meat trays and bean bag beans.


PS can be transparent or colored. It’s very cheap, stiff, heat stable, light, and non-toxic. However, it is also easy to break and has terrible resistance to cold and substance like acetone.


Polystyrene is compatible with food products but it will melt when coming into contact with acetone.

Storage Temperature:

PS can’t stand cold. But it’s pretty good when handling heat. Fill temperature can go between 200°-220°F.

Recycling Information:

Polystyrene is non toxic. So even if PS products are buried in the landfill, they will not pollute the ground or the water underneath. However, it won’t be degraded either. You can melt polystyrene and it will probably shrink, but as the temperature gets colder, it’ll become solid again. What we can do is to take it to the recycling company, have them melt PS and turn them into new products like bathroom fittings, insulation packaging, surf boards, etc.

Plastic Resin Information : Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene, like HDPE, LDPE and PET, are considered safe for food. Many food containers are made of polypropylene. To know whether the plastic container you are holding now is made of PP, look at the bottom of the container. If it says number 5, just like the symbol you see on the right, be sure that this is the right container to use for your food.

General Facts :
PP is one of the thermal plastics that is deemed safe for contact with food products. In many ways, it is almost similar with HDPE but with higher melting point. You can find PP in most food or non-food packaging due to its durability as well as great performance on resisting chemicals and moistures.

Characteristic :
Resistant to moisture and oil, stiff, opaque in color, durable though easy to break or scratch, unable to withstand cold.

PP is good to contain food.

Storage Temperature:
PP’s fill temperature can reach up to 175°F.

Recycling Information :
Polypropylene is normally accepted by recycling companies, though the colored bottles will likely get a rejection from them. Recycled products can be of container lids, ring binders, etc.

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Plastic Resin Information: PVC

The inexpensiveness and the durability of Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC, have made its production boom in the past decades. It is, however, not safe for containing food.

General Facts
You can find PVC in products like blood bags, drum covers, pipes, pumps, gloves, cables and windows. When plastic additives are added into PVC raw resin, it can become soft and flexible but still maintain its strength to chemicals and abrasions. That’s why PVC plastics have been such a hit. However, during the process of the PVC making, it may produce some toxin. It is also believed that if the final product is used to contain food, this toxin may be leaked into the food substance, making PVC plastic a big no-no for food containers. So always watch out for the number of the plastic at the bottom of your container. If it is number 3, it means it’s PVC plastic and it’s best to make use of it as container of everything else but food.

Durable, inexpensive, resistant to water, resistant to abrasion, strong, chemical resistant, transparent, stable, good for electrical goods.

PVC is not compatible with food. It is good for uses with electrical components, though.

Storage Temperature
PVC plastic withstands temperature up to 140°F.

Recycling Information
PVC recycling is generally possible. It is made of thermoplastic material which can be melted for a number of times at a certain temperature and harden as it cools. Recycled PVC plastic products include pipes, flooring tiles and profiles. However, PVC plastic that goes to the landfill will only stay there for the longest time. PVC’s natural strength will keep it from degrading.

Have you got PVC plastic at home? First of all, don’t use it in contact with food. Second of all, when you are done using it, don’t just throw it away at the garbage bin. Send it to the recycling company to handle it properly.

Plastic Resin Information : Pet

PET or PETE is the shortened form of Polyethylene Terephthalate. It has the recycling symbol of number 1, as shown on the left side, and is used widely from drinking bottles to textiles. Let’s take more look at it now.

General facts
PET is a form of polyester. In food-related applications, you can often find them in the water bottles, peanut butter bottles, frozen food packaging, household cleaners, etc. In non-food related applications, PET is found in textiles, athletic shoes and sleeping bags.

Strong, transparent, thermo stable, lightweight, impact resistant, good barrier, chemical resistant (except for acetones and ketones), and inexpensive.

PET is compatible with food but incompatible with acetones and ketones.

Storage Temperatures
Anything under 160°F or 71°C.

Recycling Information
PET products are recyclable. The first PET bottle was recycled in 1977 and most recycling programs in USA will accept PET bottles. All you need to do is to flatten the bottles so that they save space when you transport it to the recycling company, then let them do the rest. Recycled PET resin can be formed into clothing (fleece jackets, sweater), sleeping bags, carpets, and new containers (both food and nonfood). 

Friday, July 15, 2011

Plastic Resin Information : LDPE

We have the High Density Polyethylene, consequently there is the Low Density Polyethylene. The latter is going to be today’s discussion.

General Facts
LDPE plastic resin is not as strong as HDPE. However, it does still perform very good impact resistance while at the same time being flexible in its nature. You can find LDPE plastic resin in clear plastic bags, bin liners, flexible food containers like those in squeezable honey, toys, flexible films, textiles and milk containers. You can also find it in laboratory equipments such as dispensing bottles and wash bottles.

Flexible, oil resistant, impact resistant, cold resistant, acid resistant, hazy transparent in color, and tough.

LDPE is compatible with acid, alcohol and food. It’s incompatible with hydrocarbons, ketones and strong oxidizing agents.

Storage Temperatures
LDPE withstands temperatures between -58°F and 176°F (or -50°C and 80°C).

Recycle Information
LDPE recycle symbol is 4 – meaning that it is safe for use with food and recyclable. Just make sure it ends up in the recycle company instead of the landfill. The products made from recycled LDPE include garbage bins, garbage liners, shipping envelopes, furniture, etc. If you don’t have access to a recycling program in your town, just reuse it if it allows. 

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Plastic Resin Information: HDPE

In the next few days, we will mainly talk about the different types of plastic resins. Today we are going to discuss about High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).

General facts
HDPE is the plastic resin that is most widely used for plastic bottles. Some of its well-known characteristics are impact-resistant, which makes it durable, and it makes a fine moisture barrier. HDPE is normally FDA-approved so it's safe as containers for foods and drinks. You can be sure when you use an HDPE container that there will be no leaking chemicals into your edible goods. In the triangle that you can find in all plastic products, HDPE is assigned to number 2 (look at the symbol on the right), which means that it is one of the safest plastic resins to consume.

Impact resistant, economical, durable, great moisture barrier, translucent, and flexible.

HDPE is compatible with a lot of different things like food products, acids, and caustics; but not to use with solvents and essential oils.

Storage temperatures
HDPE containers give great protection for temperatures below 0° and they can also withstand high temperature up to 160°F. However, it is possible to contain products with temperature of 248°F for only limited period.

Clean Your Kitchen This Summer!

Kitchen and other parts of the house need to be cleaned daily. However, seasonal big cleaning should be scheduled, too, to wipe out those hidden parts that were missed to clean. Here are some tips to clean your kitchen this summer.

Prepare a pail of cleaning utilities
Have a pail to contain your cleaning products. You can choose whatever pail size you want and fill it in with cleaning products – organic or homemade preferable.

Buy non-toxic cleaning products
Always check the cleaning products you buy whether it contains toxic or not. Don't buy it if they do. You might not feel it when you use these products, but the environment will. The water you mix the products with will end up in the sewer, to the rivers and even in the grounds. This pollutes the habitat and living organisms. In the long run, we will get the negative result of this act. We may eat food produces that grow in polluted land or fishes from polluted water.

Use some household things that can be used for cleaning
Things like baking soda, distilled white vinegar and lemon juice are great kitchen products that can be used for cleaning. Baking soda has a great scrubbing power without making scratches on to delicate surfaces. While the vinegars and lemon juice will make great deodorant and bleach. Mix equal parts of vinegar and water, put it in a spray bottle, and use it to clean your windows.

Stock cleaning tools
You will need cleaning tools like sponges, rubber gloves, bottle brushes, microfiber cloths and scrub brushes to put in the pail. Toothbrushes will also help to clean smaller, narrower parts that are not easy to reach with normal scrub brushes.

With the pail full of cleaning kits and products, you are now ready to clean your kitchen and other parts of the house. Put back everything once you are done cleaning in the dedicated pail and take it out when you need to do the cleaning again next time. Practical!

The Type of Foods to Prepare for Emergency

We never know what tomorrow brings. Today the sun might be shining, the people around you laughing and there is nothing but positivity engulfing you at the moment. But later today or tomorrow (or next week and even next year), things can change. A single blow of earthquake or bad storm may destroy everything in a wink of an eye. That’s why it is good to always be prepared if one day an emergency situation should happen. One of the ways to be prepared is to store foods for the difficult time when food and water may be scarce. In this article we are going to discuss about the type of foods and drink that everyone should store for emergency.

This is the most important thing to store. Clean water can be very scarce during natural disaster while at the same time our body needs to take regular water to avoid dehydration. Keeping a few bottles or gallons of mineral water will help you survive the difficult times. Just make sure you keep the bottles or gallons in a sturdy box that won’t break when the roof or the wall falls on them.

Canned Foods
Canned foods are a great source of food at the time of disaster emergency. The food is edible as long as the can is not broken or dented. So make sure to keep the canned foods inside a sturdy box that won’t break when hit by heavy things.

Rice, lentils, flour, cereal, oats, etc. will make a great addition in your food storage. They are very fulfilling and give a lot of energy during emergency. What you need is a good food grade plastic container for each grain you are storing. Seal it well to ensure there will be no vermin infestation or it ever gets wet.

Emergency preparedness is important to survive unwanted natural disaster. Just make sure that the foods are contained properly. Last but not least, always label the containers with dates of expiry and regularly rotate the foods (use them before expiring and replace them with fresher ones).
