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.

FIREBAR® Heaters - Where There Is Smoke There Is Flavor


A customer required a single, 3-phase heater to smoke hickory wood in a commercial smoker to process turkey. Process temperature of 700°F (370°C) burns the hickory and flavors the turkey.


The unique three-coil design of the FIREBAR® provided the required 3-phase wiring configuration. The heater specified for this application was rated at a 240 volt, 1.5 kilowatt and 30 W/in2 (4.6 W/cm2) watt density. It was bent into a major axis hairpin formation and supplied with a steel mounting bracket.

Value Added:

Ability to provide application expertise with a FIREBAR custom solution.
