A large petrochemical manufacturer in Thailand needed an additional drum heating cabinet to keep up with growing production requirements. Engineers contact Lewco Inc., Sandusky, Ohio, which had supplied a custom drum heating cabinet to the petrochemical manufacturer in 2010.

The drum cabinet has an eight-drum capacity and is electrically heated. It has a pneumatically actuated vertical lift door and four lanes of high temperature gravity-roller conveyor inside the workspace.

Lewco also provided a portable section of gravity-roller conveyor that the customer can move around outside the hot box and line up with each internal lane while loading and unloading. The exterior conveyor permits the operators to pull drums out, or push drums in, without having to use special drum handling equipment.
