Pipe Plug Immersion Heaters - Screw Plug Immersion Heaters

Pipe Plug Immersion Heaters, Pipe, Plug, Immersion, HeatersPipe plug immersion heaters are generally used in small to medium size containers at pressures up to 3000 psi and are screwed directly through a threaded opening in the tank wall. Tubular heating elements are brazed or welded in a brass, steel or stainless steel pipe plug. Ratings from 350 watts to 38kw and numerous variations and options are available.

  • 1", 1-1/4", 2" and 2-1/2" NPT pipe plug in brass, steel or stainless steel

  • .312" diameter tubular element(s) on 1" and 1-1/4"; .475" diameter elements on 2" and 2-1/2" or .275" x 1" Mighty-Blade element(s)

  • Copper, steel, stainless steel, or Incoloy sheath material.

  • High, medium and low watt densities for various processes

  • General purpose or explosion and moisture resistant terminal enclosures

  • Tubular element ends are repressed after forming to extend element life

  • Element supports on larger size units maintain element spacing

  • Single and double pole thermostats in several temperature ranges

  • Many items are available from stock. Request a Stock List for most current information

  • Instruction Manual with wiring diagrams are included with each unit

Pipe Plug Immersion Heaters Applications:

  • Copper Sheath: Clean Water, freeze protection, hot water storage, boiler and water heaters, cooling towers, heating of solutions not corrosive to copper

  • Stainless Steel Sheath: Process water, soap and detergent solutions, soluble cutting oils, demineralized or deionized water (passivation recommended)

  • Incoloy Sheath: Solution water, corrosive solutions, steam super heating, air or gas

  • Steel Sheath: Asphalt, wax, paraffin, tar, fluid heat transfer medium, petroleum, degreasing and solvent oils, machine oil, fuel oils, alcohol

Be certain that the sheath material and watt density selected are compatible with the material being heated and the operating temperature.

Pipe Plug Immersion Heaters Options:

  • Special ratings, immersion length, or thread size

  • 316 stainless steel or other sheath material

  • Other material for pipe plug

  • Passivation

  • Electropolishing

  • High temperature cut-out
