Thermosafe® Type "B" is an intrinsically safe 120V heater designed for 55 Gallon (205 liter) drums or smaller steel vessels. Copper coils housed inside a heavy-duty fiberglass shell create an "Eddy Current" effect that heats the drum by magnetizing the drum surface. Thermosafe® induction drum heaters never make contact with the drum surface, are open on top and bottom, and may be lifted over the drum. 

The coil is connected to a single phase AC main supply and generates heat directly and uniformly in the drum wall. Energy transfer is by alternating the magnetic field (induction heating) with no radiant elements and no moving parts... thus, no maintenance. 

As there are no hot elements, the heater remains substantially cooler than the drum being heated.

Type "B" Thermosafe is for operation with up to 120 volts AC (Type "A" is for operation at 240 volts AC. See Part# THERM55A)
