Drums, barrels, canisters, and storage units are as versatile as Tupperware® in terms of what you can store in them. However, they are pretty vulnerable when it comes to cold weather. Best option for temperature maintenance? Use drum and barrel heaters to ward off the cold and protect your products.
Barrels, Drums, and Cold Weather, Oh My!
Drums and barrels take up a lot of space. You don’t see them sitting around your office; you usually find them in drafty warehouses or outside. The products inside are often left to the mercies of their surroundings, which can be a real problem if those surroundings are cold. They run the risk of thickening or freezing completely. This is especially true for metal drums or barrels.
BEWARE: Barrel Band Heaters
There has been a bandaid for this problem for a long time called the band heater. You just strap it around your barrel and: presto! You have a completely unregulated, half-scorched, half-frozen barrel of liquid. Let’s be frank, this hasn’t solved your problem at all; it only creates a new one. Unfortunately, band heaters don’t provide temperature control, they only heat up some of your product. So if band heaters are not the solution, what is?
