Heavy Duty Industrial Heaters

Heatrod Elements can draw on the rich history of design and manufacture to fulfil the need for much larger immersion heater systems, for both liquid and gas heating applications.

Our heavy industrial unit is set up to produce larger and more complex bespoke systems based on our standard designs. From the customer specification, Heatrod can develop the heater design and manufacture the units, which can include controllers and the control panel.

The types of heater manufactured are in-line flow heaters where the heating element is inserted into the flow of fluid (gas or liquid) from a simple primary heating solution, to lubrication oil heating, thermal fluids and even process air heating, heater batteries involving multiples of our elements, the Ormandy range of products including ATEX heaters and the Braude range of corrosion resistant heat exchangers.
