With count-on dependability, our tubular heaters deliver exceptional performance. These industrial heaters can quickly transfer heat to liquids, gases and solids. The tubular heater utilizes conduction, convection and radiant methods for immersion and air heating. It comes in a range of shapes – from circular to triangular. The models are often custom formed to accommodate specific applications.
What is a Tubular Heater?A tubular heater has been specifically designed to help you transfer heat using radiation, convection, or conduction. You can use tubular heaters to direct surfaces, air, liquids, or other gases. The exact design of a tubular element can vary, allowing you to customize your heater to meet your needs. You can also have certain tubular heaters custom-built to meet your specific requirements.
How Do Tubular Heaters Work?Tubular heaters are made using a variety of parts that need to work together to help you meet your needs. First, a metal sheet has to be selected. Then, a tubular heater requires a resistance wire of the right size. That way, it will work well with the heating element. The resistance wire itself is welded to a terminal, creating a connection. After this, the wire is centered and a metal sheet. After this, the material conducts heat from the coiled resistor. The heat passes through the metal sheath and deposits heat where it is required. Therefore, you can use this heating element to heat a variety of surfaces, liquids, and media.
What Are Tubular Heaters Used For?There are several common tasks for which tubular heaters are helpful. A few of the most common applications include:
- You can use tubular heaters to transfer heat to liquids.
- You can also use a tubular heater to heat gases and free air.
- Tubular heaters can also be used for liquid immersion heating.
- You can use a tubular heater to help you heat oil.
