A tote heater that can safely heat toxic material and provide quick heatup time will be used by a specialty chemicals provider. Developed by Lewco, Sandusky, Ohio, the 300°F (149°C) high performance tote heater incorporates windows on both doors to allow specialty chemicals provider to periodically monitor the tote while it is being heated.

The oven includes a top-mounted steam heater box with a high-efficiency circulating fan to evenly distribute airflow to the workspace. Electronic temperature controls actuate a proportional steam valve and solenoid valve to automatically reduce or cut off the supply steam in the event of an over-temperature condition. Per customer specification, the heater is suited for outdoor installation.
