Electric Tank Heaters


Electric Tank Heaters are used to accurately control liquid and gas temperatures in a variety of

applications. These include storage tanks, railroad tank cars, and smaller tanks and basins. Our heaters

can be used to change and/or maintain liquid or gas temperatures from -300°F to 1000°F. At

employed, such as, stainless steel, nickel, Incoloy and titanium.



There are four different types of electric tank immersion heaters that AccuTherm can design to your

a closed loop system. Pipe insert style storage tank heaters operate at low watt densities and allow the

heating element to be replaced without the need to drain the tank. Finally, screw plug and flanged

immersion heaters are installed directly into the tank or pipe and are typically used in smaller

applications. We will work with you to select and design the right tank heater for your job and
