Field Adjustable Screw Plug Immersion Heater Clean Water & Oil Applications

Item# VTS-3180/240

Field Adjustable Screw Plug Immersion Heater Clean Water & Oil Applications Field Adjustable Screw Plug Immersion Heater Clean Water & Oil Applications
Omegalux® field adjustable screw plug immersion heaters can be applied to a variety of clean water and oil applications. The unique versatility of this design allows field adjustment of the rating by simple connections to the six elements of the heater. This simplifies selection and spare parts since each heater may be used in several different heating applications. See the application matrix for the many kW values available with different wiring styles and voltages.

SPECIFICATIONS
Wattage: 0.5 to 40 kW - Water 0.5 to 10 kW - Oil
Watt Density: 2 to 80 W/In2 - Water 2 to 23 W/In2- Oil
Power:
    1 Phase: 120, 208, 240 and 480V
    3 Phase: 208, 240 and 480V
Sheath: .430" diameter Incoloy
Screw Plug: 2½" Steel
Enclosure: General purpose, NEMA-1 rated enclosure can be rotated 360° to match conduit connections

Selection Example: Light oil heating application, 2.75 kW 240V 3-phase capacity
  1. Select oil application matrix
  2. Locate 2.75 kW on chart. Use 3 kW as next higher rating. Confirm that 20 w/sq. in. is suitable for light oil.
  3. Find column with 240 Volt 3-phase power
  4. Intersection of row and column is model number VTS-3240/480. Confirm 3-phase and single-phase available. Note there is spare capacity for back up or for future increase in requirements.
  5. Locate model number VTS-3240/480 in the "To Order" table for price. When received, this heater will have instructions on wiring for the required rating. Contact Omega’s Application Engineers with any questions.
