The main use of flanged immersion heaters is the heating process, especially for heating tanks, oil containers, food processing equipment, and gases and liquids in cleaning and rinsing tanks. Direct immersion is an effective process. However, the choice of flanged heater depends on 1) evaluation requirements such as heat (or watt density), voltage, operating environment, such as the type of fluid used (water or corrosive solution) and 2) selection of the most appropriate method Blue heaters, depending on flange size and material, component count, kilowatt rating, terminal housing and jacket material.
The process engineer applies his/her knowledge and acumen to select and install the flange heater. Flanged heaters are typically bolted to mating flanges that are welded to the tank wall or nozzle. The maximum sheath temperature of the component material is a very important parameter.
It depends on:
●corrosiveness of the heating medium
●contaminants (if any) present in the heating medium
●corrosion resistance of the sheathing material
