Flanged heaters are commonly used in many chemical, petroleum and water based applications. Consisting normally of an ANSI rated flange with several hairpin elements or bugle tubular elements extending from the face of the flange, this electric heater uses direct heat application to the liquid medium. A thermowell is often used within the bundle of elements to allow for a probe (either a thermocouple, RTD or basic mechanical thermostat) to relay temperature readings to a digital control panel that cycles and maintains the desired target temperature. Often a high limit sensor is also used to help protect liquid mediums from over heating and, offers protection to the flange heater as well.

Flanged Heater Uses
Wattco flanged heaters allow the flexibility of using many different alloys to help resist corrosion and maintain life longevity of the flanged heating element Steel flanges are typically used for lubricant oils, heavy and light oils, waxes as well as mildly corrosive liquids and low flow gas heating. Steel flanges can also be found in immersion heaters for water tanks. These flanged heaters are used to process soap and detergent solutions as well as demineralized or deionized water.
