Band heaters are a more efficient heating method than electric hotplates. They also reduce the risk of scorching by lowering the heat density and moving the heat from the bottom of the kettle, where particles will settle, to the sides of the kettle. The weight of a complete moonshine still is not an issue when using a band heater, unlike a hotplate, which can be crushed under the weight of a full kettle.

These band heaters are specifically made to fit Brewhaus 8 gallon and 15 gallon premium kettles. Because they wrap around the kettle, the diameter of the kettle must match the band heater precisely. We cannot guarantee that our band heaters will fit any type of kettle other than Brewhaus kettles.

Note: Band heaters are electric heating elements, and they will short out if you get them wet.

Features: 

  • Made of stainless steel, matching the finish on your kettle
  • 110V
  • 1500W
  • 13.98" x 2.36" (355mm x 60mm)
  • Lower risk of scorching than an internal heating element

Recommendations:

  • Always place your kettle on a heat tolerant surface when heating.
  • 2" distillation column requires one band heater regardless of whether you are using an 8-gallon or 15-gallon kettle.
  • 3" column with an 8 gallon kettle requires one band heater. A 3" column with a 15 gallon kettle may require 2 band heaters to bring it to a boil and then cut to one band heater during distillation.
  • 4" column with a 15-gallon kettle may require 2 or 3 band heaters, depending on additional factors.

    Poor craftsmanship. I have had 2 of these the last one only lasted 3 runs on my still. The tightening method needs to be re-engineered. I'm very displeased with these heating bands.

    1500W band heater. these have been a "hit and miss" item the first one lasted 2 years and gradually wore out. just recentely purchased two additional ones, one has already burned out tripping the breaker every time its plugged in. LOVE the idea but maybe better QC and a longer cord.

    heater band 1500 watt. attached to my kettle fits great. Used gas to get to temp. after used the band to keep the temp steady. Faster than starting from electric only. Worked great.

    Band Heater. I have used my new heating unit twice now and both times it worked perfectly. When the temperature at the top of my reflux column hit 174F I adjusted the water flow and sat back and watched it run cleanly both times. Am looking forward to many more good runs.

    1500W band heater & 8 gallon reflux still. Ran the first batch yesterday using this equipment. I worked perfectly and heats faster than a cast iron hot plate. Product purity was excellent and cleanup of the still pot is so easy. I recommend this equipment strongly.
