Benko Products announces that its line of Sahara drum/tote ovens is suitable for use in Class I, Div I areas.

Many companies are facing the problem of how to safely heat flammable materials. It is critical that operators take the proper steps to ensure the material being heated never reaches the autoignition temperature. Autoignition temperature of a material is the lowest temperature at which it can spontaneously ignite in a normal atmosphere without an external source of ignition, such as a flame or a spark. Sahara Hot Boxes provide a solution with precise temperature control and temperature uniformity, making it suitable for use in Class I, Div I areas. The Sahara Hot Box pictured electrically heats eight drums on pallets or two totes. Steam, hot oil, or hot water can also be used as the heating medium.

The heating capability of each Hot Box is designed based on the customers’ needs. Benko Products can accurately calculate and predict heat-up times. The Model E8 is ideal for quickly and safely heating hard-to-melt materials.

The Sahara Hot Box Model E8 is fully insulated and features rugged steel construction, built-in spill containment, and is portable. It can be picked up with a forklift. This oven is shipped completely assembled and tested for easy installation. It is designed to include digital temperature control and independent over-temperature control, as well as an air circulation blower for temperature uniformity and fast heat-up of drums or totes.
