What Is a Rod Heater?

A rod heater is a heating element designed for industrial use. The internal components are encased in a metal sheath made from stainless steel. The tubes contain a nickel-chromium heating coil wrapped in electrical insulation. They are made to fit tightly into holes created with standard drill bits.

These heaters typically have a standard electrical cable. Based on your needs, our skilled team at Hi-Watt can also create custom heaters designed with alternative electrical connections such as flange mounting, right-angle exit, fixing tab and more. Cartridge heaters come in a variety of sizes, wattages and ratings.

Types of rod heaters include:

  • Immersion

  • Split Sheath
  • Custom
