L-Shaped or Bottom Immersion Heaters

L-shaped Immersion Heaters (also called Bottom Immersion Heaters) are used in higher temperature (above 150degF) which have increased evaporation rates. The advantage of an L-shaped Immersion Heater (compared to the Over the side Immersion Heater) is the better heat distribution throughout the tank due to the natural buoyancy of fluids and there is less chance of exposure to air which would cause premature burn-out of the immersion heater.
