Pipe Insert Elements

Argus Heating design, manufacture, and distribute pipe insert elements, which provide an effective way to heat storage tanks, temperature sensitive materials and other difficult to heat materials.

These insert elements come in a range of configurations including a semi-enclosed ceramic, open coil ceramic, and tubular metal sheath. Custom designs can be matched to your specific application.

Features

  • ‍Heat is transferred to the inside pipe wall by convection and radiation.
  • Large surface area reduces the pipe temperature, minimising any damage to the product.
  • Extended life of element due to lower element temperature and non-contact with product.
  • Easy element removal without the need to empty the tank.

Construction

  • ‍Open coil ceramic: low to medium watt density applications, nickel chromium alloy supported by circular ceramic insulators.
  • Semi-enclosed ceramic: high watt density applications, nickel chromium alloy fully supported by slotted ceramic insulators.
  • Tubular metal sheath:  high watt density applications or where vibration is present, metal sheath elements supported by metal spacers.
  • Custom design: matched or designed for the application.

Applications

  • ‍Bulk storage tanks
  • Viscous material
  • Temperature-sensitive materials
  • Corrosive materials
  • Acids and alkalis
  • Glucose
  • Liquid sugar
  • Fats and edible oils
  • Bunker fuel oils
  • Asphalt/bitumen
