Immersion Heaters consist of tubular or Mighty blade heating elements immersed into the fluid. Immersion heaters are very efficient and cost effectiv since all energy that is generated is dissipated directly into the medium which is being heated. Immersion Heaters are used to heat fluids such as water, oil, chemical solutions, electro-plating and salt solutions. Since some of these fluids can be quit aggressive, the sheath material needs to be carefully chosen. Other heaters used for heating fluids are circulation heaters, cartridge heaters, strip heaters, tubular heaters and flexible heaters.
We recommend the use of level controls and over-temperature sensors. (see pictures on the right)
Types of immersion heaters (@ Titan Industrial Heating Systems)
- Screw- or pipe Plug Immersion Heaters
- Flanged Immersion Heaters

- L-Shaped/Bottom Immersion Heaters
Common watt densities for immersion heaters:
45 to 100 WSI: water
20 to 25 WSI: light oils, cooling fluids
10 to 15 WSI: medium viscosity oils
7 WSI: rude crude oil, vicious materials
5 WSI: very vicious materials
