Immersion Heater

An immersion heater is a heating device that is placed into a large pool of liquid to heat it up to an appropriate temperature. There are different types of immersion heaters, including over the side, threaded, and flanged. This means that no matter what your specific needs are when you are looking into an immersion heater, you should easily be able to find the type and model that will work for your needs.

The over the side immersion heater works by hanging over the edge of the tank or container in which the liquid is being housed. This means that you do not have to worry about trying to get a heater into the side of the tank in order to properly get to the liquid that you need to heat. The other bonus feature of the over the side immersion heater is that it can be easily installed so that you can start using it right away if need be. However, this also means that when you are through with the immersion heater you can remove it from the edge of the container just as easily.

Plus, with an over the side immersion heater you can adjust the heater so that it is positioned in the tank where you need it most. For example, if the liquid is very cold, then you will probably want to make sure that the immersion heater is put on the bottom of the container, but if it just needs to be heated a few degrees you can place it in the middle or nearer the top of the container. These types of immersion heaters have elements that are made from copper, stainless steel, titanium, cast iron, and several others. They also come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, so that no matter what your specific needs might be, there is a type of over the side immersion heater that will work for you.

Another type of immersion heater that you can use is known as a flanged heater. The flanged heaters are a more permanent type of installation into the container. There are bent tubular elements that are permanently affixed to a flange. The wiring connections are also housed in a special lining that helps to keep them safe from the liquids. Then the flange heaters are bolted to a flange that has been permanently attached into the walls of the container. This is one of the most commonly used methods for heating oils because of its ability to be controlled and monitored with relative ease.

The screw plug immersion heater is a type of heater which is threaded through an opening in the side of the container. There is a wide variety of different plug immersion heater options that you can use to heat the liquid depending on what you are trying to achieve. This includes different kilowatt ratings, voltages, plugs, housings, plug coverings, and thermostats which can help you achieve the level of heat that you need for your application purposes. The plug immersion heaters are most commonly used for heating water in a type of process that will keep it from freezing. This method is commonly used in other processes as well, and because it is a direct type of immersion heating then it is more energy efficient than the over the side heaters and is equally able to be used in several different types of applications.

Depending on your needs you should be able to find one of these three immersion heaters that will work out for you. Just be sure to go through your options and to look into all of the aspects of what liquids you are heating and what you need the immersion heater for so that you can be sure that you will know exactly which type of heater method will work out best.
