Discover the main advantages of electric heaters
Thermodynamic systems encompass the transfer of energy. This can be studied in three systems: open systems, closed systems and isolated systems. Heat transfer can only take place between open and closed systems. As technology has advanced, both homes and businesses have chosen to use many open and closed systems to reduce costs and improve energy efficiency.
In this world of thermodynamic laws, the latest technological advances in electrical heating have brought immersion heaters to the forefront of the petroleum and petrochemical industries. Unique in their design, these systems heat liquid rather than air. Other forms of heating sources, such as gas, are designed to heat the air in a certain room. However, immersion heating devices are placed inside tanks or vessels for the purpose of heating liquids around the device.
Types of Immersion Heaters
Electric immersion heaters can meet a variety of industrial heating requirements, making them suitable for a wide variety of petrochemical and other industries. The three types of immersion heaters include flanged, circulation, and over-the-top.
Flanged immersion heaters are designed for installation inside pressurized tanks or vessels and are typically used to heat industrial liquids, including heat transfer fluids, water, oil, or corrosive solutions. Additionally, electric heating elements can be used to heat hot water storage tanks, boiler equipment, food processing equipment, or rinsing and cleaning equipment.
Circulating immersion heaters can be used to heat water or to heat transfer oil, waste oil, or drain valves.
Over the top immersion heaters effectively heat liquids such as water, oils, acids, salts, or solvents.
All three designs offer efficient liquid media heating capabilities, perfect for industrial or residential use.
