Screw Plug immersion heaters

Through-Wall Screw in style Heater

SCREW PLUG IMMERSION HEATERS are ideal for direct immersion heating of liquids and gases including all types of oils and heat transfer solutions. Screw Plug heaters are designed for through-wall installations.

Tanks should have a mating coupling welded in place for the plug heaters to install in the fluid. We have a variety of POPULAR stock options and made-to-order assemblies that can ship quickly as existing designs. We also design CUSTOM MADE assemblies per your application needs!
