Tanks requiring industrial tank heaters can utilize indirect heating with band heaters or, they can use direct heating that typically uses some form of immersion heating.
Band heaters can be found in several types of dimension, wattage, voltages and material. Mica band heaters are an inexpensive industrial heating solution that surrounds pipes and tubes that require external indirect heating. Pipe heating, drum heating, barrel heating normally used for oils, lubricants or any other circular applications. Band heaters use electric heating elements (NiCr wire) to heat-up the external surface of drums or pipes for a gradual heat transfer. Band heating is an indirect form of industrial heating and offers safety when heating volatile and explosive substances as well as pipes or containers that cannot otherwise be heated using direct heating methods. Insulation is also required to help direct the heat to your application rather than experience heat loss, and slow heat-up time.
Band heaters from LAIYUAN HEATER are the ideal solution for high watt densities and high operating temperature applications, especially for the plastics industry. The various types of band heaters available at BRIGT HEATER include mica insulated band heaters and ceramic band heaters.
For direct heating, our immersion heaters section is suggested as a more efficient means for heating your liquids. Direct heating uses flanged heaters, screw plug heaters, over the side heaters as well as pipe heaters
