We stock the HLT Brewery Heaters Range listed above for rapid delivery. But we can make bespoke items to suit your specific needs if required. That can include BSP screwplug sizes including 1″BSP, 1.25″BSP, 1.5″BSP, 1.75″BSP, 2″BSP. As well as the British Industrial Standard size of 2.25″, which can be fitted with an adaptor to take it up to 2.5″BSP.

Bespoke items usually take a coupla weeks, but can be shuffled to the top of the pile if you are willing to pay a premium surcharge of approximately 50%. Customers only tend to do this when they are desperate, due to a production line being down & costing £££’s due to not carrying a spare. The moral of this story being, CARRY A SPARE. Especially if your heaters are not standard (ie, 2.25″BSP and a multiple of 3 in terms of kW power output).

BESPOKE HLT Brewery Heaters

  • Available at any kW loading from 500w up to 27kW.
  • 1.25″, 1.5″, 1.75″, 2″, 2.25″ and 2.5″ screwplug sizes are available in brass.
  • 2″ and 2.25″ BSP also available in stainless steel.
  • Available with 1 or 2 thermowells at 7, 11 or 18″ for thermostats / cutouts.
  • Or available with no thermowell if specified by the client. If you don’t need it, omit it from the build as it is an unecessary weak point.

Screwed Brewery Immersion Heater – Hopefuly Useful Information

We understand your need to get water from one part of your process at 70ºC, up to the boil as quickly as possible. Therefore this demand for lots of power needs to be balanced with a maximum immersed length of about 1m. The more element we can squeeze into the available space, the more we are able to reduce the watt density of the elements. Therefore, it may be worth having a look at our Blog entry, in which I have tried to explain the importance of watt density and its relevance when choosing and using a brewery immersion heater.

On our blog, ElementsOfHeating there is a wealth of relevant and useful information, such as an explanation of what a heating element actually is. And my best punt at explaining the joys of watt density, and it’s crucial importance when choosing the most appropriate heating elements for water, oil, and breweries. Generally speaking, soft water, if you can find it, or indeed soften it with one of these, is good up to 80 w/in². Hard water, which is most of us, needs to be at or below 40 w/in², otherwise the magnesium & calcium sticks to the element, preventing heat dissipation, encouraging even more sh1t to stick, eventually killing the element. Light oils, such as cooking & seed oils, are ok at 25 w/in², but heavy industrial oils will need to be down at 12 w/in². Simply put, you need more element in the available space.

On our blog, ElementsOfHeating there is a wealth of relevant and useful information, such as an explanation of what a heating element actually is. Also we have a full description and explanation of the component parts of a screwed immersion heater and my best punt at explaining the joys of watt density, and it’s crucial importance when choosing the most appropriate immersion heater for water, oil, and breweries. Also available is an informational entry about the process we go through when designing immersion heaters generally.

Sidetracked onto our Sister Site?

If you now realise that what you are in fact searching for is a Heating Element, as opposed to an Immersion Heater, you have two options. You can stay on this website, research Heating Elements, find what you need, & then call Jamie on 01827 215684.

Or you can go to our sister site, where you will find additional information, exampled below, and you are able to buy online, should you wish to avoid a long telephone conversation with Jamie, about Life, the Universe & Everything. Or perhaps you love banks & their 2% charges. I don’t. So please call Jamie on 01827 215684.

The more “Wiggle Room” you have in terms of power rating & length, then the more likely we are to be able to find something on the shelf. In stock, makes the process both quicker & easier. If elements are required STRAIGHT or NARROW U BENT (ie, <=50mm fixing centres) then lengths will have to be close enuf. But if we can squeeze in a W shaped element then this allows the “middle leg” to vary according to what lengths are available on the shelf. Likewise, if you can be flexible on power rating, we may not have sufficient 1000w elements to hand, but if you could take 1250w, 1333w, or perhaps 750w, then we are better able to accommodate your needs quickly & cost efficiently.
