Pipe Plug, Immersion Heaters
Tubular heater elements are brazed or welded in a brass, steel or stainless steel pipe plug or flange plug. Ratings from 350 watts to 38kw and numerous variations and options are available. Pipe 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. Flanged immersion heaters are used in large capacity vessels, in high pressure applications and are installed by bolting the unit to a matching flange welded to the vessel wall.
