  • Immersion Heaters

    Durex Industries has over 30 years of experience in the application and design of robust tubular immersion heaters and process assemblies. We have thousands of standard designs for quick field replacements and convenient ordering. Durex also has extensive experience with custom designed immersion heaters for tank, reservoir and circulation flow applications.

    Immersion heaters are used for direct liquid immersion heating applications. They are constructed of one or more heater elements brazed or welded into various types of mounting fittings. Standard and custom engineered designs are available for tailored solutions to application requirements.

      Screw Plug Immersion Heaters
      Screw plug immersion heaters are used in almost every liquid heating application imaginable, including water, mild solutions, detergents, vegetable oil, aqueous solutions, tar, asphalt, petroleum products, plating chemicals, molten salt baths, grease, gas or grape juice.  Various sheath, screw plug and corrosion-resistant hardware materials are available.  NEMA enclosures for all…
    • Flange Immersion Heaters
      Flange Immersion Heaters
      Flange immersion heaters are constructed of hairpin bent tubular heater elements brazed or welded into ANSI standard flanges or plate flanges of various shapes and sizes. ANSI flange heaters are typically used for large volume, high power and/or higher pressure applications. Plate flange heaters are typically custom designed for use…
    • Over-The-Side Immersion Heaters
      Over-The-Side Immersion Heaters
      Over-the-side immersion heaters are designed for the robust requirements of corrosive chemicals, viscous (potentially contaminated) fluids, and rinse and process water heating. Various configurations of tubular heater element assemblies provide convenient tank side mounting when through-the-wall heaters cannot be installed, portability is required, or when heaters must be removed without…
    • Pipe Insert (Dry Well) Heaters
      Pipe Insert (Dry Well) Heaters
      Screw plug and flange immersion heaters can be used to heat a “dry well” in a tank. This provides tank heating, while facilitating easy removal of the heater without draining the tank contents. Removal of a screw plug or flange immersion heater from a tank for servicing or replacement requires that the…
