One-trip IBC Base Heater
BOMAC Aluminium foil mat elements provide a cost effective and highly efficient solution to the problem of removing semi-solid products from intermediate bulk containers (IBC).
Foil heaters are manufactured to individual specification for use in a wide variety of intermediate bulk containers; virtually any size/shape/power requirement can be accommodated.
Preset temperature limiters are installed to protect both the product from spoiling and the IBC liner from damage due to over temperature. This system provides a fail safe mechanism that can be made for any temperature requirement.
The foil element is normally laid at the base of the container, underneath the flexible bag, but can be designed to cover the lower portion of the side walls if required. This allows semi-solid product to be melted for easy discharge from the container top or bottom valves. The use of an inbuilt heating element completely eliminates the need for hot air rooms or hot water baths.
Typical products discharged using mat heaters:
- Butter milk
- Vegetable oils
- Liquid cheeses
