Types of Watlow Heaters

Watlow produces an incredible variety of heating products, so it can be difficult to find the best option for your needs. Our team at Hi-Watt can assist you in ordering the exact heater or replacement part for your specific operation. Here are some of the most common Watlow heating options:

watlow immersion heaters
  • Air heaters
  • Flexible heaters
  • Cartridge and insertion heaters
  • Immersion heaters
  • High-temperature heaters
  • Nozzle heaters, and more

Heaters are divided into categories based on the heating element, control system and temperature ranges. Some heating elements, like immersion heaters, are designed to thoroughly and quickly heat up liquid. These heaters need to have a durable exterior that’s corrosion resistant and capable of reaching optimal temperatures.

Flexible heaters use bendable shapes and thin materials to heat any shape of material. Lay it flat to warm up sheet metal components or wrap it out a cylindrical component to prevent freezing or condensation.

Air heaters are a versatile option for preventing condensation and freezing. These are typically used to prevent condensation in a mechanical housing or used in forced air applications. Nozzle heaters offer a precise fit on cylindrical parts.

These are commonly used in medical applications and industrial processes for all temperature ranges.
