We control every production and manufacturing steps of our heaters and controls. This insures you get a top-quality product specified to your particular needs.


 Press Releases

  • WATTCO industrial heaters are capable of heating oils that are circulated through such process systems to remove contaminants such as rust and dust. A highly cleaned system increases the efficiency of the process. In the process industry, oil flushing reduces bearing damages as it helps to dislodge any particle that is trapped inside the bearing system.
    WATTCO develops and manufactures a range of professional-grade immersion and circulation oil heaters for the process industry.
  • Petrochemicals often require certain temperatures in order to maintain its viscosity in process applications as well as in harsh external environments.
    Flanged heaters are often chosen in order to apply a relatively moderate heat source that can penetrate the heavy lubricant evenly across the containment. Bitumen often uses flanged heaters to help with the extraction process in the oil industry.Circulation heaters are used when circuits of flowing liquid exist and users are looking for minimal (or gradual) heat applications.
    WATTCO provides specific terminal enclosures for use in adverse situations, for example, in the explosion-prone environment of the petrochemical industry.
  • WATTCOTM tubular heaters are manufactured to be compatible to nearly all type of applications while oil storage tank is no exception. For example, the variability of the sheath material, shape and size can be adjusted to fit any storage tank size whether it is for crude oil or end-product use. Custom bending option is also available upon request. Inside of each tubular element, it consists of a Nickel Chromium wire, as the resistor, enrobed with compacted Magnesium Oxide for insulation. These parts are protected by an enclosed sheath material which can be steel, stainless steel, copper, IncoloyTM or Titanium depending on application. For oil heating, steel sheath is recommended for the best performance. 
    The bending and material type of the WATTCOTM tubular heaters are adjusted to fit any tank size, for any storing chemical substance, in a cost effective way.

 Products

  • Circulation Heater with pump
    Wattco circulation Heaters, also known as “in line heaters,” have uses in many applications. We can use steel, stainless steel, or titanium depending on the application. Heat gets applied to the fluid as it flows within a vessel chamber...

  • Industrial circulation heaters come in a range of watt densitie
    s. Watt densities are specifically designed for the medium they will heat. The required wattage to heat the oil or water is highly correlated to the flow rate (in GPM).

    1. The fluid enters through the inlet closest to the flange heater.
    2. Heat gets applied to the fluid as it flows within a vessel chamber.
    3. The fluid exits the outlet nozzle or flange.
    4. It circulates throughout the piping circuit.

    Insulation is often required for vessels to preserve the heat within the vessel. This results in efficient heat application, reducing unnecessary costs through heat loss.

    Electric circulation heaters can use digital thermocouple probes or RTDs. This allows them to maintain the oil or water at the preferred temperature. Many applications use liquids with low flash point. These require explosion-proof housing (NEMA 7) to avoid potential mishaps.

    Shipping

    Wattco uses its decades of experience shipping our industrial heaters worldwide. When shipping across borders, Wattco can handle all necessary import, customs and duties responsibilities to ensure that you receive your product on time and on spec.

  • Circulation Heaters, also known as “in line heaters,” have uses in many applications. They can use steel, stainless steel, or titanium depending on the application.

    Lube oil and waste oil applications often use steel for circulation heaters. This is because it is fairly inexpensive compared to its stainless-steel counterpart. Water circulation heaters use stainless steel because of its anti-corrosive qualities. In both applications, a pump flows the liquid, such as water or glycerol, through a closed pipe circuit. The liquid is reheated as it flows through the circulation heater.

    A major consideration for this application is viscosity. Electric circulation heaters generate heat, making the medium more viscous. The more viscous the fluid, the easier it is to pump through a circuit of pipes.

    Industrial circulation heaters come in a range of watt densities. Watt densities are specifically designed for the medium they will heat. The required wattage to heat oil or water is highly correlated to the flow rate (in GPM).

    The fluid enters through the inlet closest to the flange heater. Then heat gets applied to the fluid as it flows within a vessel chamber. The fluid exits the outlet nozzle or flange.

  • Wattco tubular process duct heaters are custom designed and built to fit the specific needs of your industrial processes with capacities of as much as 2 MW. 

    A tubular process duct heater is generally an assembly of tubular heating elements mounted on a flange or box. They are used for tempering forced air in many industrial processes. Their wattage is dependent on air outlet temperatures (up to 1300°F) and air velocity.

    We offer the option of field replaceable tubular heating elements of different shapes, sizes and alloys to provide better protection against corrosive air environments and resistance to vibration when compared to open coil elements.

    Wattco manufactures its own heating elements which are the key components of all electric heating systems. The design is defined according to customer specifications.
