I am experimentalist, and I am unsure on how to proceed about a question I have for an experiment. In the experiment, I would like to heat up a drum barrel like:
I have seen options like this: https://www.vulcanic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/drum-heaters.jpg
Do I have any other options?
I will be using this barrel to heat up a few grams of chemical pellets, so main objective is to make sure the vapor has a consistent temperature of the chemical of my choosing (e.g. iodine). Barrel will not be containing any liquid etc, just air.
I would like the air inside the barrel to maintain a consistent temperature.
