Immersion heaters are used in applications that require the heater to be immersed in the substance to be heated. Most flange and screw plug immersion heaters have a protective sheath or sleeve that covers the heating elements.
ASME immersion heaters are made up of components that have all passed the same high standards of quality control testing. Our engineers work hand-in-hand with your technical staff to ensure your solution is designed to your exacting specifications. Prior to manufacturing, project designs are submitted for your approval, ensuring your heater complies with local and international technical standards.
All of this notwithstanding, however, a simple immersion heater is one appliance that many travellers (especially those on a limited budget, trying to avoid restaurant meals) consider invaluable. Place it in a cup of water, plug it in, and in almost no time you have boiling water. This not only kills all disease organisms, it also lets you make a hot cup of tea, coffee, cocoa, soup, etc. You can even cook an egg (bring the water to a boil, remove the heater, drop in the egg, and wait a few minutes). Small, lightweight immersion heaters are inexpensive and available in dual voltages, though you may still need a plug adapter; alternatively, you can buy a new heater locally in most developed countries. Better-quality versions of these have thermostatic shut-offs; with cheaper ones, be sure that the coil is immersed in liquid whenever the unit is plugged in!
