Applications for Immersion Heaters

Immersion heaters are used for a wide variety of purposes. For example, they can be used for heating liquids such as water, oil, or molten metal; heating gases such as air, oxygen, nitrogen, or hydrogen; heating solids such as metals, ceramics, plastics, or glass; and heating fluids such as oils, fuels, or slurries. 

In addition, immersion heaters are often used in conjunction with electrical resistance elements to provide localized heating.

Immersion Heat Temperature Boiler Solutions

  • Cement curing. Immersion heaters speed up the cement curing process with fast, consistent results.
  •   Chemical industry. Electric immersion heaters are critical for keeping a stable temperature and preventing freezing of detergents, water, oils, and acidic or basic solutions.
  •   Food processing. Ceramic immersion heaters are ideal for controlling moisture that leads to the growth of pathogens and bacteria that threaten the quality of food items. Immersion heaters can sterilize containers and heat liquids to meet government regulations and comply with quality standards required of food processing operations.
  •   Laboratories. Immersion heaters are used in labs for sterilization, autoclaves, and pill drying.
  •   Nuclear power. Nuclear power plants require pressurized water in reactors to produce steam. Immersion heaters accurately raise water temperatures to keep consistent pressure. 
  •   Oil and gas industry. Immersion heaters allow oil and petrochemical products to flow at cold temperatures by heating them without changing their underlying infrastructure. 
  •   Wastewater management. When temperatures get cold, immersion heaters ensure that water in reservoirs and pipes doesn't freeze to ensure water treatment doesn’t fail.
