With below-freezing temperatures sweeping the nation, many companies are facing the problem of their material thickening in the cold. The Sahara Hot Room heats and speeds the flow of their thick or viscous materials. The Sahara Hot Room heats 32 drums on pallets or eight totes with saturated steam up to 200 psig. Hot oil or hot water can also be used as the heating medium.
The heating capability of each Hot Room is designed based on the customers’ needs. With 30 years of drum warming experience, Benko Products can accurately calculate and predict heat up times. The Model S32 is ideal for quickly and safely heating hard-to-melt materials.
