Vessel and Container Heating, IBC and Hobbock Heating

South Africa and Sub-Sahara

Sensitive chemicals and other media that are stored and transported in a wide range of different containers are seeing increased use in industry. Container heating is used in this situation to maintain a certain temperature, reduce viscosity, prevent crystallisation or flocculation in liquids, or heat media to a certain temperature. Containers also have to be heated in the food and beverage industry, for example to process chocolate, oils or glucoses. Heating is often needed for frost protection in the cold part of the year for containers that are kept outdoors. Mineral-insulated heating cables are frequently used in applications in the high-temperature range, for example to heat certain media. There are numerous problems, and the choice of a suitable heater depends among other things on the specific application, type of medium to be heated and the design of the container.
