IHS builds chemical heaters with PTFE coating or Teflon® for corrosive plating tanks - PTFE stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene. The plastic resists destructive chemicals and has a maximum operating temperature of about 450° F.
PTFE heaters can be used in any chemistry and it is best to have at least a 2” solution from the bottom of the junction box. Having the chemical solution closer to the top generates more vapors and steam.
Our heaters for caustic baths come in 1 element to 12 element designs from 250 watts to 18,000 watt.
For corrosive solutions heating, the best of heater will depend on:
Dont hesitate to contact us, we have been helping manufacturers heat dangerous chemicals for almost 50 years. Custom designed L shaped or bottom immersion heaters made of Teflon are also available.
Be sure to use liquid level probes to monitor the solution levels and turn the heater off prior to exposing it to open air.
