Applications

IBC heaters should be tested at every stage of the handling, filling and distribution process to make sure they are electrically safe, working correctly, and compliant with local safety regulations.

Testing also provides confidence that the heater and heated IBC will operate to specification.

The person carrying out the testing does not need a formal electrical qualification to carry out the visual inspection, earthing continuity, and insulation resistance tests (500V), but they need to be trained on how to follow the correct test procedures. All of Argus Heating’s IBC heater test kits are supplied with instructions on how to complete the correct series of tests.

Changes to the tests to meet local regulations must be done by an electrically qualified person.
