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:
i) 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;
ii) 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 and;
iii) Flanged immersion heaters – This type features hair-pin bent elements attached to a flange and is specially designed to heat 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, a flanged heater is the first and most viable industrial electric heating solution for a variety of fluids including water, oil, gases and corrosive chemicals. Because flanged heaters are typically simple to install and use, they have won a place as one of the most effective heating systems suitable for industrial application since they are easy to control and allow for precise temperature requirements. Flanged heaters are generally considered the best heating tools for processes that require heating solutions for fluids in tanks or containers under pressure.
Efficiency of flanged immersion heaters
Flanged heaters are principally designed to heat gasses and liquids in a pressured tank where high wattage is required. Installation is pretty simple and because they are available in a wide range of sizes, voltages, pressure capacities, terminal housings, kilowatt ratings and sheath materials, you can find them almost anywhere this form of heating is required, from kitchens to chemical processing plants. These devices are built for efficiency because the heat they generate is instantly dissipated to the medium being heated with no chance of leakages.
The efficiency of flanged heaters extends to its maintenance and installation. Because flanged immersion heaters feature advanced and precise temperature control, they do not damage from overheating and absolutely no chronic-related maintenance expenses are required. Not only are the heaters easy to install and use, they are also suitable for installation on regular containers as well as tanks and other odd shaped containers or ducts. Whatever your industrial heating requirements are flanged immersion heater offer a viable solution since they can be custom designed to provide heating for different types of unique industry environments.
Uses of flanged heaters in today’s industrial processes
Flanged immersion heaters are process heaters that are best used in pressurized tanks or vessels. These heaters are best used in immediate heating applications and in medium to heavy duty industrial processes. Today, these heaters are most popular in heating water, oil, vicious materials, industrial solvents, gases and a range of process solutions. Flanged heaters have been praised as being close to 100 percent energy efficient largely due to their effectiveness in heating pressurized fluids and most other liquids.
When selecting the most ideal flanged heater it is important consider one with the right configuration for the fluid you want to heat. This means that considerations such as heating capacity, voltage, terminal housing, sheath material and thermostat material among others have to be taken into effect.
