Tubular Heaters

Chromalox catalog tubular lp
Overview

Tubular heating elements perform exceptional heat transfer by conduction, convection or radiation to heat liquids, air, gases and surfaces. In most heater assemblies, tubular element design configurations vary — round, triangular, flat press and formed. Bends are made to customer requirements Custom built from 0.200" to 0.475" diameters, a multitude of sheath materials with sheath temperature capabilities up to 1600°F, watt densities to fit many applications and up to 600 volts. Available with over 20 optional terminations and many stocked accessories.

chromalox round double-ended
Round Double Ended Tubular Heaters
Tubular Heaters are the most versatile of all electric heating elements.  They are capable of being formed into virtually any configuration.  Tubular heating elements perform exceptional heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation to heat liquids, air, gases, and surfaces.
chromalox single ended
Single Ended Tubular Heaters
Single Ended Tubular Heating Elements are of similar construction as our standard tubular elements.  They terminate at one end which can simplify wiring and installation.
Chromalox catalog thin blade
Thin Blade Tubular Heaters
Thin Blade Heaters provide greater surface area inch for inch than the traditional round elements.  With the Thin Blade equipment can be designed with more wattage in less linear space than a conventional element.
chromalox hopper heaters
Hopper Heaters - Tubular Heaters
High Temperature Modular Hopper Heaters can be made to order to your hopper specifications. Low watt densities ensure long life while providing operating temperatures of 250°F (120°C) to 350°F (175°C) or higher.
Specialty Shape
Specialty Shapes Tubular Heaters
Specialty Shaped Tubular Heating Elements are of similar construction to our standard tubular elements. These shapes can greatly increase rigidity to the element.  Heaters that are clamped to a surface have greater surface contact allowing for greater heat conductivity than conventional round elements.
