Screw Plug Immersion heater

Screw Plug Immersion Heaters are screwed directly through a threaded opening in a tank wall or through a matching pipe coupling or half coupling. Sizes of screw plug heaters are available with 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 2", 2-1/2" pipe threads. A wide selection of screw plug sizes, kilowatt ratings, voltages, sheath materials, terminal enclosures and thermostats makes these compact heaters ideal for all types of applications.

Applications

Screw Plug Immersion Heaters are used for heating liquids and gases in a variety of processes. These heaters are ideal for process water heating and freeze protection. All types of oils and heat transfer solutions can also be heated using these compact, easily controlled units. The direct immersion method is energy efficient and well suited for many applications.

  • Hot Water Storage Tanks

  • Warming Equipment

  • Preheating all Grades of Oil

  • Food Processing Equipment

  • Cleaning and Rinsing Tanks

  • Heat Transfer Systems

  • Process Air Equipment

  • Boiler Equipment

  • Freeze Protection of Any Fluid

Please note that the user accepts full responsibility for validating that a heater is suitable for a given liquid or gas heating application.

Ensure that heater elements are completely covered in liquid AT ALL TIMES. Failure to do so may cause the heater elements to operate in open air and fail prematurely, or worse, lead to ignition of flammable vapor mixtures, causing serious personal injury and equipment damage. Liquid level sensors are highly recommended.

recommends the use of a thermostat or process controller as well as a high limit sensor and FM approved safety controller to prevent unexpected over temperature conditions.

Other power,voltage,length,diamoter alse ok,please consult us for were details.
