Watlows Tubular and Process Assemblies, FIREBAR heating elements provide added heating performance over standard round tubular heating elements; especially for immersion applications in petroleum based liquids that require 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.
