An IBC heater (also container heater) is an uncomplicated and efficient solution for keeping an intermediate bulk container (IBC) including its contents warm* on site. In industry, there are a number of different substances that are stored in IBC tanks. Many of these substances are solid or viscous at ambient temperature, so they cannot be easily pumped out of the IBC. With the assistance of the IBC heater, the container material can be removed with little or no product loss. A container heater often also serves as a frost protection. By keeping the container contents warm, crystallization or flocculation of the contents can be avoided.
