FLANGED IMMERSION HEATERS :
MAGMA immersion heaters are primarily designed to generate all heat immersed in liquid or gases which are installed in a tank or container. These heaters are virtually 100% energy efficient. These versatile heaters can also be formed and shaped into various geometries for radiant heating and contact surface heating applications.
MAGMA has extensive experience with custom designed immersion heaters for tank, reservoir and circulation flow applications. They are constructed of one or more heater elements of various lengths & dimensions, diameters of tubes which are brazed or welded into numerous different types of mounting fittings as per requirements. Hot water and steam are required for numerous industrial and commercial applications. For a good percentage of these, an immersed tubular heating element is the most efficient, inexpensive and robust solution.
Standard or custom engineered designs are available for tailored solutions to application requirements. Installation for various applications can be over-the-side, flanged and threaded or screw plug immersion heaters.
One of the most widely used method for heating liquids such as water, oil, heat transfer fluid and corrosive solutions is MAGMA Flanged immersion heaters. This method is energy efficient and easily monitored and controlled. They are designed for use in tanks and pressurized vessels.
MAGMA Flanged immersion heaters are easy to install and maintain to provide heat for many processes. These through-the-side immersion heaters utilize standard pipe flanges of various ranges in diameter to support high tank pressures of liquids. They are installed through a matching companion flange, obtainable from local industrial supply houses, to the tank wall.
Many different alloys used in the MAGMA flanged immersion heaters allow the flexibility to help resist corrosion and maintain life longevity of the flanged heater. Steel flanges are typically used for lubricant oils, heavy and light oils, waxes as well as mildly corrosive liquids and low flow gas heating. Applications of steel flanges are process water, soap and detergent solutions as well as de-mineralized or deionized water. Stainless steel flanged heating elements are used with mildly corrosive solutions as well as severe corrosive solutions. Food applications use stainless steel for sanitary purposes.
The sheath materials used can be steel, stainless steel, copper as well as exotic alloys such as Inconel, hast alloy and titanium. Extremely corrosive environments such as salt water should use exotic alloys such as titanium to avoid sheath breach over excessive durations. Industries that use exotic alloys can include military, Chemical and process industries.
MAGMA offers flanged immersion heaters in varying kilowatts ratings, voltages, temperature ranges, sheath materials and so on. A wide selection of watt densities, heating outputs and flange sizes and ratings make this an excellent heater for all tanks, or irregularly shaped vessels.
Typical applications include preheating different grades of oil, cleaning tanks and heat transfer.
