Flexible drum band heaters for your steel drum, or fiber and plastic drum heaters. Select the correct drum heater sized for 55-gallon (208 liter), 30-gallon (114 liter), 15-gallon (57 liter) drum, or a 5-Gallon (19 liter) pail heater for your plastic pail, metal can or bucket.

Morse drum heaters conduct heat through the drum wall to the product inside. Adjust the thermostat to automatically maintain the correct temperature. We have barrel heaters for various sizes, from a 5-gallon pail (19 liter pail) up to a 55-gallon drum (208 liter drum). Drum band heaters for metal drums can operate at higher temperatures and therefore, work faster. We also have more gentle drum band heaters for your plastic and fiber drums.

Keep products warm and fluid with a Morse Drum Heater. Just wrap the correct heater around your drum, set the thermostat, and it will warm to your required temperature, and maintain it there.

Easy to use, flexible drum heaters provide a simple, effective and reliable way to heat the contents of your drums. We have a drum band heater for your steel, plastic or fiber drum. We even have 5-gallon pail heaters / bucket warmers.

Drum heaters for plastic drums - Plastic barrel heaterThermostats on drum heaters allow you to raise the temperature of the product in your drum, then maintain that temperature +/-10 degrees F.

Heaters for metal drums have an adjustable thermostat for a control range of 50 to 425 F (10 to 218 C)

Heaters for plastic and fiber drums have a 50 to 160 F (10 to 71 C) thermostat.

Morse electric drum heaters provide more heating power over a larger surface area than other drum heaters on the market.

Morse drum heaters:

Models for a Metal Drum

  • Heat with a 1500 watt 4" (10.2 cm) wide band
  • Have a 50 to 425 degree F thermostat

Models for a Plastic or Fiber Drum

  • Heat with a 300 watt 4" (10.2 cm) wide
  • Have a 50 to 160 degree F thermostat

Morse oil drum heaters are made of flexible, tough wide fiberglass reinforced silicone rubber which conforms to the curvature of the drum. Simply wrap the drum heater around your drum, attach the spring and hook arrangement, then plug the drum heater in. Ensure the drum heater is properly positioned below the content level of the drum. The band heater provides uniform heat. Two or more drum heaters may be used on the same drum for faster warming.
