IBC Foil Heaters

Argus Heating design and manufacture IBC foil heaters for Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs).

During transportation and storage, many foodstuffs, oils, and chemicals contained in IBCs, cool and become viscous or solidify, making it very difficult to decant the product. Our IBC foil heaters are a cost effective, single-trip solution to this problem, allowing IBCs to be used for most product applications.  Argus Heating will custom design an IBC foil heater to meet your specific requirements.


  • Eliminates the need for specialised hot rooms or water baths at the point of decanting. 
  • Even distribution of heat across the surface of the heater. Over-temperature circuits for added protection.
