Watlow FIREBAR 1.25 Screw Plug Immersion Heaters

Fire Bar Screw Plug Immersion Heaters by Watlow and Flow Factor

Watlow FIREBAR 1.25 inch Screw Plug Immersion heaters (BDNF Series) for heating Process water. The screw plug is made of 304 Stainless Steel and the element is made of Alloy 800. The watt density is about 45 watts per square inch.

Also available with integral thermostats in two ranges 60-250 or 100-550 degrees F.

The FIREBAR has a few advantages over a tubular element.

The FIREBAR element has three resistant wires and thus can be wired in single or three phase with only a single element.

The FIREBAR element has lower watt density for the same length of immersion, or put another way it can have higher wattage with less immersion depth.

The FIREBAR design has better heat transfer due to the design of the element than the round tubular element, it creates more surface area within the medium.
