FIREBAR® Single/Double-Ended Heaters

Unique Flat Surface Geometry Packs More Power in Shorter Elements and Assemblies

FIREBAR heating elements provide added heating performance over standard round tubular heating elements—especially for immersion applications in petroleum-based liquids requiring high kilowatts. The FIREBAR's unique flat surface geometry packs more power in shorter elements and assemblies, along with a host of other performance improvements. These include: -Minimizing coking and fluid degrading -Enhancing the flow of fluid past the element's surface to carry heat from the sheath -Improving heat transfer with a significantly larger boundary layer allowing much more liquid to flow up and across the sheath's surface FIREBAR elements are available in single- and double-ended constructions with one inch or 5⁄8 inch heights. These two configuration variables make it possible to use FIREBAR elements instead of round tubular elements in virtually all applications. FINBAR is a special version of the one inch, single-ended FIREBAR. FINBAR is specially modified with fins to further increase surface area for air and gas heating applications.
