THE ELECTRIC SAND PILE HEATER heats all day while you work. This happens in the following three ways:

  1. Heat from the ground below the sand pile moves up through the sand.
  2. Heat radiates from the water barrel in the center of the sand pile.
  3. Heat lost through the top forms a heated air shield between the whole top surface of the sand and the tarp.

KEEPS SAND PILES FROM FREEZING
Built specifically for wintertime masonry use, the heater constantly warms water and sand. The unit has an internal thermostat which will cycle on and off intermittently and will keep up to 5 tons of sand and 50 gallons of water hot when temperatures are as low as one degree below zero. The cost is estimated at only $2.94 per day maximum, based on 7.5? per kilowatt hour; actual cost per day may vary.

SAVES LABOR
The unit will pay for itself in less than TWO cold weeks of use! It saves on labor because employees do not spend an hour or two each winter day thawing the water and sand pile.

INCREASES TIME FOR PRODUCTION
Masons can immediately start working because the water and sand are hot when they arrive at work. Two hours saved on a cold morning in an 8 hour workday equals a 30% increase in available production time that day.

ONE PIECE, ALL STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION
Built for ruggedness, easy to transport, and economical to operate. The electric volcano rod will heat the sand pile, when the volcano rod is in a steel barrel filled with water and placed in the center of the sand pile. It is important to keep the bottom of the water barrel free of debris. If the volcono rod becomes covered with debris, it can cause the volcano rod to overheat and burn out.
