manufacturing methods and quality materials have made Tempco tubular heaters stand apart from other heating elements claiming similar performance.
A computer-designed helical coil of 80% Nickel 20% Chromium alloy resistance wire is fusion welded to the nickel-coated steel terminal cold pin. This coil assembly is precisely stretched and centered in the element metal sheath, which is then filled with Grade “A” Magnesium Oxide powder (MgO). The filled tube is then compacted by a roll reduction mill into a solid mass, permanently stabilizing the coil in the center of the tube while providing excellent heat transfer and dielectric strength between the coil and the sheath.
Nickel 18-20%, Chromium 18-22%, Iron balance.
Has about 10% less nickel than Incoloy 800. Used in many air heating applications, where it has exhibited superior oxidation resistance at less cost than Incoloy 800.
Nickel 30-35%, Chromium 19-23%, Iron balance.
The high nickel content of this alloy contributes to its resistance to scaling and corrosion. Used in air heating and immersion
heating of potable water and other liquids.
Chromium 16-18%, Nickel 11-14%, Iron balance.
(316L - Low Carbon)
Modified with the addition of Molybdenum (2-3%) to improve corrosion resistance in certain environments, especially those which would tend to cause pitting due to the presence of chlorides. Applications include deionized water.
Maximum Sheath Temperature: 1200°F / 649°C
Chromium 18-20%, Nickel 8-11%, Iron balance.
(304L - Low Carbon)
Used in the food industry, medical, and chemical heating.
Maximum Sheath Temperature: 1200°F (649°C)
Chromium 17-20%, Nickel 9-13%, Iron balance.
Modified with the addition of Titanium to prevent carbide precipitation and resulting intergranular corrosion that can take place in certain mediums when operating in the 800-1200°F
(427-649°C) temperature range.
Standard Copper Alloy
A low temperature, inexpensive material used mainly for clean water heating.
Maximum Sheath Temperature: 350°F / 177°C
Used for high to low viscosity oils, asphalt, tar, wax, molten salt, heat transfer liquid media and other compatible solutions.
Iron 6-10%, Chromium 14-17%, Nickel balance
Maximum Sheath Temperature: 1800°F / 982°C
Available for a limited number of diameters. Consult Tempco for more information.
Nickel 38-46%, Chromium 19.5-23.5%, Molybdenum 2.5-3.5%, Iron balance
Bulkhead fittings provide a leakproof method for mounting tubular heating elements through tank walls. Standard are round brass fittings crimped onto the element that are suitable for low pressure water (up to 80 psig) and non-pressure air. A brass hex nut, plated steel washer and gasket are supplied as standard.
Plated steel mounPlated steel mounting collars are locked in place with a set-screw and serve as an adjustable stop for through-the-wall mounting. Collars are shipped in bulk unless otherwise specified. Mounting collars can be ordered with the heater or purchased separately.ting collars are locked in place with a set-screw and serve as an adjustable stop for through-the-wall mounting.
Locator washers are permanently attached to the heater sheath by staking/crimping and are used to limit the movement of the heater while allowing for expansion and contraction of the heater sheath.
An economical way to mount the heater in non-pressurizing, non-liquid applications.
