What are FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS?:

FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS are tubular elements with immersed lengths available up to 130 inches usually designed from 0.25 KW to 100 KW for mounting via 2" to 24" flanges for up to 1500 PSIG pressure rating.  They are generally used to heat a known volume of fluid to desired operating temperature.  Sheath materials include Copper, Steel, Stainless 321, Stainless 316L and Incoloy 840.  Sheath selection is determined by the user's knowledge of the chemical composition of the medium being heated, corrosiveness, contaminants, and controls.


How do you size FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS?

FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS are sized by using the following information:

  • Ambient temperature (worst case).
  • Final temperature desired.
  • Time requirement to heat up (if applicable)
  • Medium being heated, all specifications including corrosiveness, heat density.
  • Watt Density Allowed.               
  • Sheath Material required.
  • Flange Material required.
  • Environmental Operating Conditions for Terminal Enclosure determination.
  • Maximum length and/or size
  • Available operating Voltage & Phase
  • Desired temperature controls (available with or without thermostat, thermocouple, or over-temperature cut out devices)  

Who uses FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS?

FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS are used by the following industries:

  • Oil
  • Biodiesel
  • Tire
  • Chiller
  • Food                          
  • Parts Cleaning
  • Bottle Washing                   
  • Paving
  • Construction Equipment
  • Degreasing
  • Chemical
  • Electroplating
  • Pet Food

How long does it take to get FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS?

FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS can usually be shipped in one to two weeks if parts are in stock.  If parts are not in stock, it can take up to six weeks to ship.


How are FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS Installed?

HEATERS: FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS are installed horizontally near the bottom of the tank/reservoir. The heated portions of the heater elements must remain completely immersed and completely flooded whenever energized.  The cold section of the heater should be extended completely into the fluid being heated.  The heater may overheat, damage and elements, tank or fluid being heater and/or create a possible safety hazard due to high sheath temperature. (See INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS)


What is the Quality Policy and Warranty on FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS?

Warren Electric Corporation FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERSmust pass vigorous inspections proper to shipment.  Each individual heating element is checked for electrical leakage and breakdown at high voltage before assembly.  All heaters are 100% hydrostatically pressure tested to insure braze or wells attaching the element to the flange is free of all leaks.  We also electrically test 100% of heaters to ensure they meet the wattage/voltage specifications of the order.  100% of our heaters are also subject to testing for moisture content and hipot testing.  Every heater that Warren Electric Corporation has ever manufactured is identified with a serial number prior to shipment.  These serial numbers are kept on file indefinitely and can be used to identify back to the original inspection sheet and purchase order.   Warranty is 15 months from the date of shipment provided heater failure is not caused by operator error.


Are there any special certifications available for FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS?

There are third party certifications and inspections available for FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS including UL and ISO.   ASME Certification is available for heater casings.


How do you clean FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS?

Instructions to clean a FLANGED IMMERSION HEATER will vary depending on the fluid being heated.  Lime scale is the primary problem for water applications.  If the heater is being used to heat clean water, you may notice a lime scale build up on the elements which can be removed by soaking the heater elements only in CLR (using as directed) and gently using a wire brush to remove heavier deposits if necessary.  Coking is the primary problem for oil applications.  If you are heating oil and notice a build up of oil (called coking) burned onto the elements, the heater elements only can be soaked in kerosene to break down the coke and a wire brush can be used to remove the excess build up if necessary.
