A flanged immersion heater consists of hairpin bent tubular elements attached into a flange, with wiring boxes used for electrical connections. A Flanged immersion heater can be installed by bolting to a matching flange. For effective results, it is advisable that you install the heater using the direct immersion method to monitor and control heat thus conserving energy.
Flanged Immersion Heater Applications
Heat and processing industries use flanged immersion heaters in the heating of gases and liquids such as, oils, heat transfer fluids, corrosive solutions and water. The design of the flanged immersion heaters makes it possible to use in pressurized vessels and water tanks. The goal of a flanged immersion heater design is to optimize the heater to increase an application’s life, while minimizing the overall product application and its life cycle costs. These heaters can easily be installed in applications and maintained to keep providing heat in different applications like:
- Process chemical reactors
- Lube oil and fuel oil heating
- Caustic solution heating
- Process Air and gas heating
- Parts cleaning solutions
- Rinse tank heating
- Hydraulic and heat transfer oils
- Boilers and water heating
- Water-Glycol solution heating
- Freeze protection and winterizing
Plating and finishing chemicals
Flanged immersion heaters are available in different styles, shapes and configurations. At AccuTherm we aim to design and create simple and effective flanged immersion heater that helps you solve your industrial heating needs. Our team of experienced specialists will help you select from the wide selection of flanged immersion heaters configurations, which include size, voltage, terminal enclosures, kilowatt ratings and sheath material, which make the heaters ideal for heating applications in the process heating industry.
Flanged Heater Selection
By selecting preferred sheath material and appropriate optimum fitting methods, as well as manufacturing elements based on the flange immersion heater watt density, you should expect a heating solution engineered to suits your needs. Your heater application may be influenced by the following parameters.
- Viscosity of heated medium, corrosive properties and the specific heat density
- Heater’s sheath material corrosion resistant properties
- Maximum temperature – recommended maximum sheath temperature of the sheath material
- Availability of contaminants in the medium
- Watt density of the heating element
