This “Hi-ball” Switch Heater Can is designed specifically to prevent railroad track switches from freezing. To use it, place it directly beneath the switch points and light the wick. With its 3-gallon fuel capacity, the switch heater can burn for up to 4 days without refueling or maintenance. Extinguishing the heater is as easy as covering up the wick.
The Switch Heater Can is particularly useful for working on remote segments of track, where alternatives like electric heaters are not appropriate due to distance from an electrical grid. Just add fuel. Shop for all your railroad tool solutions with Industry-Railway Suppliers today.
