A breakthrough design in base heating technology delivering durability, reliability, and safety in a lightweight and easy to install solution.

Argus Heating’s Lightweight In-Base Heater for bottle in cage IBCs is an ideal solution for heating a wide range of products that solidify or thicken as they cool. The heater is designed to be used with an Argus digital PID controller, allowing the target temperature of the heater to be adjusted to suit the conditions and the product being heated. The controller also provides increased electrical safety by regulating the power of the heater.

The heater has been designed to be light and flexible, making it very easy and safe for one person to install.

  • Lightweight – for easy handling and installation.
  • Easy to clean – using water and a gentle detergent.
  • Hygienic – no dirt or bacteria traps.
  • Accurate power and temperature control – digital PID controller with solid state switching (refer to controller specification sheet for details).

Construction

  • ‍Embedded PT100 temperature sensor. Water resistant fabric reinforced PVC outer layers. Multiple paths of resistance heating wire arranged above a foam insulation backing. Dedicated 5 pin connector. Manufactured and tested in accordance with AS/NZS 3100.

Applications

Perfect for heating a wide range of products including:

  • Fats and oils
  • Greases
  • Liquid sugars
  •  Waxes
  • Polyols
  • Water based solutions

The ability to adjust the temperature using the controller makes this heater ideal for products that are traditionally hard to melt or with very different melt profiles. It is also ideal for maintaining products above a certain temperature, especially in colder weather.
