Watlow recently introduced FLUENT, a small, lightweight, high performance in-line heater ideal for use in fluid heating applications across a wide range of industries such as medical, analytical, foodservice equipment and semiconductor.
FLUENT is a high watt density, low mass heater that enables on demand heating with an ultra-fast response, leading to higher system performance. The standard construction includes an internal baffle to promote turbulent flow and high efficiency, a fast responding, high watt density layered heater circuit, low profile axial lead exit and an internal thermocouple for high limit control. Powered by Watlow’s patented thermal spray technology, FLUENT makes use of its entire surface to produce heat, which optimizes heat transfer and temperature uniformity.
FLUENT can replace a traditional immersion-type heater or a heater wrapped around a tube as part of a thermal system. It is designed as an integrated solution that replaces multiple components in a system resulting in a reduction of overall system cost and complexity.
