Industrial Heaters
  • In an ever expanding global marketplace,
    maintaining a wide variety of top-notch
    industrial heaters is an essential aspect to our
    business. Whether you are in need of flanged
    heaters, screw plug heaters, circulation heaters,
    over the side heaters, or incline heaters, at
    Wattco weve got you covered.

Our heating products are available with
industrial grade safety features such as high
limit cut off controls to help preserve valuable
heating equipment from over heating. Our
industrial heaters are also available in
standard, moisture resistant and explosion proof
terminal housing upon request and are CSA and UL
Flanged Heaters
  • Flanged industrial immersion heaters are
    commonly used in many chemical, petroleum and
    water based applications. This electric heater
    uses direct heat application to the liquid
    medium. A thermowell is used to allow for a probe
    to relay temperature reading to a digital
    controller that cycles and maintains the desired
    target temperature.
  • Wattco flanged immersion heaters allow
    the flexibility of using many different alloys to
    help resist corrosion and maintain life longevity
    of the flanged heater. Steel flanges are
    typically used for lubricant oils, heavy and
    light oils, waxes as well as mildly corrosive
    liquids and low flow gas heating. Process water,
    soap and detergent solutions as well as
    demineralized or deionized water applications
    often use steel flanges. Food applications also
    use stainless steel for sanitary purposes. The
    sheath materials used can be steel, stainless
    steel, copper as well as exotic alloys such as
    inconel, hastelloy and titanium. Extremely
    corrosive environments such as salt water must
    use titanium alloys to avoid sheath breach over
    excessive durations.
  • Flanged immersion heaters are one of the most
    widely used heating options in the oil sector.
    Compared to other heaters, they are easier to
    install, are specifically designed for use in
    pressurized vessels and more manageable. Typical
    applications include preheating different grades
    of oil, cleaning tanks and heat transfer.

Screw Plug Heaters
  •  Screw plug heaters are an easy way to heat up
    solutions in smaller containers that also require
    controls. Mechanical thermostats or Digital
    controllers can be used with these immersion
    heaters to help reach target temperatures with
    great accuracy meeting your project objectives.
    Additional thermowells can be installed for high
    limit temperature probes to help protect your
    liquid and processes.
  • Screw Plug heaters from WATTCO are used for
    heating gases and liquids in tanks or vessels.
    These elements are designed to be immersed in
    liquid so that heat transfer will occur at a
    rapid rate, enabling quick heat up times. Typical
    uses include the food and beverage industry,
    laboratory clinics, applications involving
    hydraulic oils and lubricants as well as more
    sophisticated uses such as heating up flammable
    liquids or gases which require explosion proof

Circulation Heaters (1)
  • Circulation Heaters (or in line heaters) use
    flanged immersion heaters in many applications.
    It often involves a pump that flows
    liquid through a closed pipe circuit (i.e.. water
    or glycol solution) that is reheated. The
    required wattage to heat the liquid is highly
    dependent on the flow rate (gallons per minute).
    The medium enters an inlet opening, gets heated
    up as it flows within a chamber and exits the
    outlet nozzle where it circulates throughout the
    piping circuit. Temperature probes such as a
    thermocouple or RTD, is used in conjunction with
    the electric heater to maintain the liquid at the
    desired temperature. Many applications
    use liquids with low flash point and, require
    explosion proof housing (NEMA 7) to avoid
    potential mishaps. Drain valves can be installed
    to allow for easy maintenance by purging the
    liquid from the vessel and cleaning the tubular
    elements from any residue that can build up over
    time. Circulation heaters can come with legs for
    horizontal or vertical installations depending on
    your application and your spacial requirements.
    Wattco in line heaters are an exceptional choice
    for heating process liquids, non corrosive to the
    materials of construction.

Circulation Heaters (2)
  • Oil and Gas companies have specifically used
    circulation heaters to assist them in the process
    of modifying viscosity levels of their heating
    oils. Crude oil enters an inlet of the vessel at
    a cool temperature and exits the outlet at a
    temperature more convenient for flow as it
    travels from one end of the transport pipe to the
    other. Hydraulic fluid can also be heated using
    this immersion heater for heat transfer purposes,
    and to resist cooler climates as winter
    temperatures need to be avoided. Immersion
    heaters are widely used in a variety of
    industries particularly the oil and pipeline
    sector for several different purposes. These
    heaters are specifically designed so that oil,
    water, viscous materials, gases, solvents and
    other different process mixtures can be heated in
    direct contact with each other. This allows the
    heat to be generated within a single enclosure or
    solution, and so hundred percent efficiency can
    be achieved.

Over the Side Heaters
  • Over the Side Heaters are a popular product for
    economic and practical uses. Using a
    water-resistant terminal housing, these
    industrial heaters come in many shapes and sizes
    to fit within your tank dimensions and
    specifications. Wattco over the side heaters are
    custom designed with multiple tubular elements
    and a thermowell to hold your temperature probe.
    Shaped to fit within your standard (or
    non-standard tank) the economic feasibility meet
    the budget of any project manager.
  • These mobility of these heaters to be able to be
    used in more than one container allow it to be
    the choice of many project managers. Commonly
    used in petroleum and chemical industries it is
    an exceptional choice for projects with
    limited budgets. There are several applications
    in which over the side heaters can be used such
    as heating oils of varying viscosities,
    degreasing solutions, heat transfer oils and
    caustic solutions.
