TCF – TCF/TV – barrel heaters

The TCF and TCF/TV heaters are designated for heating the barrel contents with capacities 30, 60, 120 and 200 litres from the outside. They are recommended for achieving relatively low temperatures or maintaining medium temperatures.

Barrel heaters are basically silicone heating fabrics. They are fastened to the barrel by a stainless steel spring.


  • resistance to moisture and flowing water
  • double insulation
  • if a precise temperature regulation is needed, use the external regulator with a sensor submerged in the liquid

Barrel heaters are produced in the following modifications:

TCF: barrel heater with a silicone insulation, without a thermostat. 
TCF/TV: barrel heater with an adjustable thermostat in a range from +20 to 150°C  



  • maintaining the temperature of a barrel for preserving the viscosity and other parametres of the contained product at the ambient temperature
  • light heating, where it isn´t decisive when the desired temperature is reached
  • anti-freeze protection
  • for a faster obtaining of the desired temperature, the barrels can be heated by 1, 2, or 3 heaters
