Applications of Tubular Heating Elements

Tubular Heating Elements Tubular heating elements are commonly used in industrial heating due to their versatility and affordability. They are used for heating liquids, solids and gases through conduction, convection, and radiation heating. Capable of reaching high temperatures, tubular heaters are an efficient choice for heavy duty industrial applications. What Are Tubular Heating Elements Tubular heating elements are elements used for electric heaters. They are highly customizable, energy efficient and can be used for most heating applications. They can be made to just about any shape – most commonly round, triangular or flattened. How Do Tubular Heating Elements Work Tubular heating elements transfer heat through direct exposure to a liquid, solid, or gas. They are configured to a specific watt density, size, shapes and sheath based on their specific application. They can reach temperatures of 750 degrees centigrade or higher when configured properly.

How To Pick The Right Thermal Fluid Heating Equipment

Thermal fluid heating is a form of indirect heating. The basic premise is that the heat transfer medium is heated and circulated within a loop system. This distributes heat to one or more sources within the loop.   Heat transfer fluids are commonly used due to their low maintenance, low corrosion, environmental safety, and precise temperature controls. The most common thermal fluids include oils, water, glycol, and glycol-water mixtures.   Picking the right thermal fluids and heating equipment for your specific process will maximize efficiency and keep costs lower. This guide will help you identify the right thermal fluids and thermal heating equipment for your application. Thermal Fluid Heating Applications Thermal fluid heating is used in a wide variety of industries and applications. The following are a few of the most common thermal fluid heating applications:   Steam Generators Hot Water Generators Storage Tanks Baths Kettles Rolls Reactors Presses Molds … Continue reading

Immersion Heater Maintenance: How To Maximize Lifespan & Efficiency

Proper maintenance of your immersion heater will drastically improve performance, efficiency, and increase lifespan. Being proactive about heater care saves money, and increases safety. This guide covers proper immersion heater maintenance for maximizing lifespan and efficiency. We will discuss pre-installation, installation, and ongoing care. Pre-Installation Heater Selection Long term care starts with picking the right immersion heater. Ensuring that it is constructed of the right material for a specific applications and medium is one of the most important aspects in immersion heater lifespan and efficiency. The materials used for your immersion heater needs to be able to stand up to its use conditions. Incoloy or stainless steel, for example, may be used when heating corrosive mediums because they are more resistant to corrosion. The Megohm Reading The Megohm Reading is used to gather a resistance reading before the heater is connected to a power source. This reading will help to … Continue reading
