Process Electric Heaters

Mighty Blade Process HeaterMighty Blade Process Heaters

The flat shape of the Mighty-Blade provides greater surface area inch for inch of length than round elements. With the Mighty-Blade, equipment can he designed with more wattage in less linear space than with conventional elements. Or, by replacing an existing tubular heater with a Mighty-Blade of the same length, the watt density is significantly reduced. In immersion applications the narrow profile increases natural convective flow of materials being processed, resulting in lower sheath temperatures and improved heat transfer to the process. Materials being processed are less susceptible to degradation. In processes where these considerations are not as critical, watt densities can be reasonably increased. The .275" x 1" dimension creates anti-corrosion, self-cleaning effects that significantly extend the Mighty-Blade's useful life by not allowing the collection of foreign materials on the sheath. The multiple coil design permits an individual element the flexibility to be wired at the installation in single phase, three phase, three heat or dual voltage. The Mighty-Blade can be used in virtually any immersion, clamp-on, forced air or radiant heating application.

Pipe Plug Immersion HeaterPipe Plug Immersion Heaters

Tubular heaters or Mighty-Blade elements are brazed or welded in a brass, steel or stainless steel pipe plug. Ratings from 350 watts to 38kw and numerous variations and options are available. Pipe plug immersion heaters are generally used in small to medium size containers at pressures up to 3000 psi and are screwed directly through a threaded opening in the tank wall.

Flanged Immersion Heater Flanged Immersion Heaters

Tubular heaters or Mighty-Blade elements are brazed or welded into a standard pipe flange. 3", 4", 5", 6", 8", 10", 12" and 14" are standard sizes. Flanged immersion heaters are used in large capacity vessels, in high pressure applications and are installed by bolting the unit to a matching flange welded to the vessel wall.
