Through the years, Mr. Desloge promoted electric heat as the new and better alternative to gas heat, which is both hard to control and confine, and steam heating, which is expensive to install and maintain. As our customers' industrial electric heating applications expanded, our engineers responded with innovative new products that soon became industry standards. We're continuing that tradition of providing outstanding heaters, sensors and controllers to ensure your company enjoys the competitive advantage needed in today's global markets.
Watlow revolutionized the heater industry with the patented FireRod high watt density cartridge heater, still the industry leader. Mineral-insulated leads handle temperatures to 1,500oF (815oC) and resist contamination.
