IBC tote tank heaters are used to help speed up the flow heavy viscous liquids prior to use and prevent freezing. This heating process can be significantly accelerated with Pulsair 10-55 Tote-Stick. The Pulsair tote mixers weights less than 6 lbs and is easy to use. It works by pulsing in burst of air or gas into the tote moving and rolling warmer liquids away from the heat source allowing cooler liquids to come in contact with the heating source. Unlike heavy, cumbersome impeller mixers, the industrial Pulsair 10-55 Tote-Stick is lightweight and can easily access the corners of the tote and bottom with damaging the mixer or the tote. Also, the mixing process is a non-shear mixing process so the characteristics of the liquid product will not be compromised. Food grade controller are available and the compressed air is pulsed in through a 60″ stainless steel probe. The all-pneumatic Pulsair tote mixer operates on either compressed air or inert gas.
Heating IBC tote tanks is similar to Pulsair’s rail tank car mixing process where compressed air is pulsed in through the bottom drain outlet of a rail car during steam heating to accelerate the heating of 20-30,000 of liquid product prior to unloading. Most rail tank car customers see a 50% reduction in heating times. The same efficient mixing process is also used in fixed storage and blending tanks fitted with heat coils and steam jackets.
