Drum and Tote Heaters (Hot Boxes)

LEWCO, Inc. is the world leader in the design and manufacture of  Drum Heating Cabinets (Hot Boxes), and Drum Heating Tunnels.  An ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer, offering over 50 standard models, no other company has as broad a product offering or technical expertise as LEWCO.  LEWCO’s drum heating product line offers standard cost effective models for melting, viscosity reduction, elevated temperature storage and general industrial heating applications.  All models feature our signature all-welded steel, heavy-duty construction and simple, user-friendly controls.     

 

LEWCO Drum and Tote Heaters are available in electric, steam, hot water, or hot oil heat.

 

Electric Hot Box Models employ low watt density resistance heaters, encased in seal-welded tubing.  Standard controls include an electronic process controller and redundant high-limit controller housed in a NEMA 12 enclosure with full voltage lockable disconnect. Caution:  Electrically heated models are not suitable for heating flammable or combustible materials.

 

Steam Hot Box Models (also available in Hot Oil & Water) employ finned pipe heat exchangers rated for service up to 200 psig.  Standard control options include a self-acting (non-electric) control system as well as the standard electronic control system similar to the above but with a modulating control valve and high limit solenoid valve.

  • Drum Heating Tunnels

    LEWCO Drum Heating Tunnels offer an alternative degree of systems integration and control capability not standard with traditional drum heating cabinets. Drum heating tunnels utilize LEWCO’s standard gravity roller conveyor, which is set on an incline for conveying through the tunnel. This allows for “first in, first out” product flow. Pneumatically powered guillotine doors on both sides, and pneumatic indexing escapement, allow for precise control over drum traffic. Heavy-duty rigid frame construction and a top mounted heater box save workspace and provide high convection airflow for faster heat-up times. Drum heating tunnels are available in 12, 16, and 20 drum capacities and are suitable for indoor use only.
