Electric heaters are essential in the kitchen appliance industry. Tubular elements make it possible to maintain food groups at specific temperatures. Steam tables use screw plug immersion heaters with standard mechanical thermostats. These allow them to maintain higher temperatures for food preparations.
Stainless steel utility stands have tubular elements fastened onto the mainframe. These are supported with fittings that help maintain solid structural support. As well, this makes it easy to maintain, repair or replace elements when necessary.
Cold buffet tables and food bars need to stay in their food safe temperature zone. Electric heating offers reliable, accurate temperature control. For salad bars, condiments and other cold buffet table uses, stainless steel screw plug heaters are a popular option. They are installed horizontally to offer even heat distribution within the heated area.
Equipment storage cabinets use tubular heating elements that are fastened along the wall of the cabinet. These radiate heat along heated racks to maintain required temperatures. This type of heating is also often used in restaurant patios to provide comfortable heating for guests.
Sanitation is an essential aspect of the foodservice industry. Electric industrial heating elements play a critical role. They are commonly employed in dishwashers and steam cleaning processes. This keeps food and equipment safe, sanitary, and compliant.
