L-SHAPED IMMERSION HEATERS

Our L-shaped heaters are designed to maximize application flexibility and minimize installation costs. Compared to other standard Immersion Heaters, such as Over the Side, Side Wall, and Tank Heaters, an L-shaped immersion heater delivers heat at the bottom of the tank making it safer for tanks with lower liquid levels. Explore the features and capabilities of our L-shaped immersion heaters to discover the customizable solutions that can improve the safety and efficiency of your project, application, and industry.

L-Shaped Heater Features

Each custom-made L-shaped immersion heater is designed to fit your requirements, including different sizes, materials, and wattage.

Mounting Options

An L-shaped heater can be top-mounted into tanks and drums keeping the terminal enclosure at the top while applying heat at the bottom of the tank.

Easy Installation

The L-shaped design allows for easy installation and removal for cleaning or use in multiple tanks. L-shaped heaters do not require tank drainage for heater removal.

UL Listed

UL Listing means that UL has tested representative samples of a product and determined that the product meets specific, defined requirements. (Excludes L-Shaped heaters with Thermostat and Titanium)

Terminal Box

Rugged terminal boxes provided for wiring connections on our custom L-shaped immersion heaters. NEMA 4 terminal boxes are standard and NEMA 4/7/9 terminal boxes are available upon request.

Straight, Circular, or Custom

Standard immersion heater models with straight or circular elements (sometimes called O-Shaped) are designed to fit most tank and drum configurations. If our standard models don’t fit, our L-shaped immersion heaters have a variety of dimensions, heater sheath materials, and capabilities available.

Materials Available

Talk to us about which material is best for your application, and we will find a solution that works for your project. Sheath elements for our L-shaped heaters are available in Stainless Steel, Titanium, and Incoloy®. The riser is available in Stainless Steel and Titanium.

Thermostats

Thermowell and thermostats are available to improve the safety and efficiency of your L-shaped immersion heater.

Puts Heat at the Bottom

An unheated vertical riser makes L-shaped heaters a safer option for tanks with lower liquid levels.
