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.

    This thing is dangerous. Major short in wiring. Unable to repair, no access to wire terminals.

    I have used the band heater several times with the only issue being the plug and cord got warm when heating up. This time the cord started sparking at the connection to the band. It blew the breaker and now does not work at all. Nice concept but the cord, plug, and connection need to be better built.

    Band Heater. Worked for 3 runs before plastic plug melted replaced plug with new quality metal plug. Got an additional 2 runs out of the heater before it completely stopped working.

    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.
