Discover the advantages of using flanged heaters

Most industries today require heating solutions for various industrial processes in their production, engineering and/ or manufacturing practices among others. There are three types of immersion industrial electrical heaters that everyone who needs heating solutions should know about:

  • 1) Over the Top or Side Immersion Heaters: As the name suggests, this is the easiest to install and uses heaters that are inserted into the fluid from the top of the container.

  • 2) Screw Plug Immersion Heaters: This type of heater is commonly used in more permanent processes.  Heaters are inserted through a side threaded opening chamber to the fluid.

  • 3) Flanged immersion heaters: This type features hair-pin bent elements attached to a flange and is specially designed to heat a pressurized liquid.

This article looks at how flanged immersion heaters are power efficient and how they are put to use in process heating.

For most engineers, flanged heaters are the first and most viable industrial electric heating solution for a variety of fluids. These include water, oil, gases and corrosive chemicals.  Flanged heaters are typically simple to install and use. As such, they are one of the most effective heating systems suitable for industrial application since they are easy to control and allow for precise temperature requirements.  Generally, experts consider flanged heaters as the best heating tools for processes requiring heating solutions for fluids in tanks under pressure.
