Immersion and Fintube Heaters
February 1, 2004
Oil immersion and fintube heaters are designed for oil preheating, oil baths and other heat transfer fluids. The oil immersion heaters use a tubular heater design while fintube heaters have an aluminum flange welded to longitudinal finned tubing. Fins increase the surface area, lowering the watts per square inch and enabling a higher kilowatt rating to be used in a shorter length.
