Tubular heating elements from WATTCO™ are the most versatile and the best-suited industrial heating solution for a large number of applications. Tubular elements from WATTCO™ are factory-configured to almost any shape or size. Custom bending diameters can be made upon request and we can manufacture a variety of industrial heating solutions such as flanged tubular heaters. Tubular heaters are typically made using steel, stainless steel, Incoloy, inconel or titanium alloys. Tubular elements are often regarded as the foundation of all heating elements. These heating elements have a strong outer sheath to help protect the process heater from physical stress and uses high quality alloys to allow efficient heat transfer from resistance coil to your heating medium.
Depending on their rating, sheath and shape, WATTCO™ electric tubular heaters are used in a variety of industrial heating applications (conduction, convection, radiation heating) that require process temperatures of up to 750°C (1 382°F) to heat liquids, gases and solids. A variety of diameters are available to adjust watt densities in your application and to design your industrial heating product for best performance and long life. Standard and custom made terminal pins allow for easy installation and maintenance. Wattco uses high quality magnesium oxide to allow for efficient heat transfer from resistive coil to your heating medium whether it is air, liquid or solid. Bending radiuses are designed with careful expertise to allow for optimal performance when meeting "form fit and function" within your application.
