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. Thin Blade elements can attain the same wattage with lower sheath temperatures. This can make processed materials less susceptible to degradation. These are commonly used in commercial cooking and industrial applications such as degreasing and plating tanks.
- Immersion for deep fat fryers, degreasers,
plating tanks, humidifiers, lube and fuel oil
heaters, hydraulic oil heaters, water heaters.
- Clamp-on for griddles, tanks, platens, dies,
molds, heat sealing.
- Process air duct heaters, dirty gas stream, high
More Efficient Heat Transfer — The larger
sheath area of the Thin Blade conveys heat more
rapidly to medium being heated.
Long Life — Particularly well suited to deep
fat frying. The oil suffers less degradation and
Adaptable to a wide range of applications
now served by tubular elements with unique
Three Wire Construction — Provides a balanced
3-phase load. A wide array of heat settings using
only a low-cost selector switch.
Thin Space Saving Profile — 1/4" by 1" minimizes
possible interference with the process being
heated. Unit can hug bottom or side of tank.
Completely Sealed Sheath permits complete
immersion of heated length.
Unique Bending Properties make thin blade
easy to apply to most difficult spatial limitations.
Minimum Bending potential is 1" radius on the
major axis and 1/2" radius on the minor axis.
Greater Mechanical Strength — Makes the
elongated cross-section more rigid than the
