I've searched around for hours trying to find answers to this question, but can't find much. Sorry if this has been asked before. My submersible heater has fried up on me again in the middle of degreasing so I'm looking for new heaters to try. I've already got an aquarium heater on the way for outside maceration, but I'm wondering about the barrel heaters that you wrap around the outside of the tub for degreasing? I know you can edit some aquarium heaters to reach degreasing temps but I'd much rather have something that I don't have to mess with to lessen the chance of me messing it up..The Cheapest barrel heaters I can find are about $90 which is kind of a scary price for a heater, but they can easily get to degreasing temp, have an easy to read adjustable handle for temp, and stay on the outside of the heater so its easier to clean the tub when needed. My question is; has anyone used barrel heaters to macerate/degrease and would you recommend them? How long do they seem to last and how hard are they on electricity? They seem like a good deal if they last long enough, but of course I want to make sure before I spend so much on one to try.
