IMMERSION - Over-the-Side Immersion Heaters

Application & Selection Guidelines

Applications

The large variation in heating element material and shapes of over-the-side immersion heaters offers a wide selection in the application of these units. Water, oils, solvents, plating baths, salts and acids are some of the many liquids and viscous materials commonly heated with immersion heaters. Over-the-side types permit portability, easy removal for cleaning of tanks and heaters and ample working area within the tank when installed.

Important — When selecting a tank heater design, the user should make sure the sheath material is suitable for the solution being heated at the maximum temperature expected, with proper safety factor.
