The global impact of COVID-19 on our people and the global economy is significant, and Watlow has taken a comprehensive approach to deal with the current crisis. Our contingency planning includes protecting our team members, communicating often with our customers and partners and maintaining the continuity of supply lines.

At the beginning of the pandemic, we set two priorities that guide our responses and decisions: the health and safety of our team members while continuing to supply essential products needed by our customers.

If you have questions about how the pandemic is impacting Watlow or Watlow’s response, please contact your Watlow representative.

Heater Failure

One of the most common failures in electric process heaters used in various industrial applications involves electrical terminations and not the heating elements. Engineers at Watlow® believe designers across the industry are underestimating the temperature profile from the heater flange to terminal enclosure in these thermal systems.
