Hot solutions in a plastic tank are not a good combination, but sometimes necessary for perfect metal finishing. Polypropylene has become a standard material used in chemical plating. It can be fabricated into different size tanks and can handle temperatures up to 190°F.
Immersion heaters used in Polypro can be any style: Over-the-side heater, Bottom, Screw-plug or Flanged– we make them all. For metal processing, the primary concern is the heater NOT burning a hole in the bottom of the tank. Get an immersion heater with a heat shield.
Temperature control and liquid level sensors are a requirement in any plastic tank. If the tank cracks, solution evaporation, pump hose issue, or faulty drain valve, then our level safety device will shut the heater off. Liquid level safety devices can be conductive sensors, float type with bottom up design, or air bubbler.
