Tubular Heaters

tubular heatersWith 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?

Tubular heaters have the capability of being formed into virtually any shape or configuration necessary to suit the heating application. Because they are among the most versatile electric heaters they are extremely popular. Exceptional transfer of heat through convection, conduction and radiation lends them perfect for various applications including heating liquids, gases, air and a wide variety of surfaces.

Common Types of Tubular Heating Elements

Common tubular heaters include:

  • Single Ended
  • Double Ended
  • Cast-In
  • Metric Tubular Sheathed
  • Metric Diameter Monotubular
  • Thin Blade Heaters
  • High Temperature Modular Hopper Heaters
  • Mini-Tubular Heaters
  • Specialty and Custom Shaped

Tubular Heater Sheath Options

Tubular heating elements offer a full scope of durable sheath options, with the resistance wire protected by industrial grade materials, as well as magnesium oxide insulation. These elements can be selected based on high temperature capabilities, watt densities, terminations and voltages.

Heat Transfer Materials

Superior materials allow for efficient heat transfers to the medium that is being heated. The heating element materials are specially tailored to the specific application. Optimal heating outcomes are achieved with the right tubular heater from Hi-Watt, Inc.

Industrial Tubular Heaters in Compact Designs

Long-life industrial tubular heaters are available in a range of diameters. They feature single or double ends made of industrial grade materials. High-temperature or standard models come with a variety of mounting and termination options. This type of electric heater meets compact spacing requirements.

Easy bending
To put heat where it is needed, tubular elements can be formed to fit most requirements. GLO-QUARTZ® can form tubular elements to your exact specifications.

Nickel Chromium Resistance Wire
80% nickel, 20% chromium alloy resistance wire is the heart of the tubular element. This wire must meet strict GLO-QUARTZ® and internationally recognized standards.

MgO Insulation
Magnesium oxide insulation is carefully selected to give the best transfer of heat from resistance wire to element sheath. This allows the resistor wire to operate at the lowest possible temperature. The MgO must meet rigid GLO-QUARTZ® specifications.

Choice of Sheath Material
A selection of sheath material is available to meet an unlimited variety of applications. Standard sheath materials are Incoloy®, Types 304 and 316 stainless steel, copper and titanium.

Long Life
Tubular heaters are designed for long life and will outlast other tubular element in a given application. Proper application assures long life. Consult with one of our applications engineers for assistance.
