Tubular Heaters

Tubular Heaters
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.

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.

Single Ended Tubular Heaters

Single Ended Tubular Heating Elements are of similar construction as the standard tubular elements. They terminate at one end which can simplify wiring and installation.

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 space than a conventional element.

Hopper 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 Shaped Tubular Heaters

Specialty Shaped Tubular Heating Elements are of similar construction to our standard tubular elements. Shaped heaters can be more ridgid and have a higher watt density, lowering the sheath temperature and extending heater life.  Heaters that are clamped to a surface have greater surface contact allowing for greater heat conductivity than conventional round elements.

Mini Tubular Heaters

With the capability to be formed into many shapes, the Mini-Tubular Heater is adaptable to a wide variety of applications.  Small diameters allow for a quick response, providing heat in tight spaces where most heaters cannot be installed.

Watlow Tubular Heaters

Watlow Tubular Heaters
Available in single- or double-ended termination styles, the versatile and economical WATROD™ tubular heating element from Watlow® lends itself to virtually the entire range of immersion and air heating applications. Firebar heating elements provide added heating performance over standard round tubular heating elements—especially for immersion applications in petroleum-based liquids requiring high kilowatts. Composed of aluminized steel fins press-fitted to a one-inch single-ended FIREBAR element, the FINBAR finned tubular heater is designed to improve heat transfer to the air and permits putting more power in tighter spaces—like forced air ducts, dryers, ovens and load bank resistors.
