Water Heater Elements
About Water Heater Elements
Water Heater Elements are an essential component of electric water heaters. They are responsible for heating the water that is stored in the tank so that it can be used for various purposes such as bathing, cooking, and cleaning. Water Heater Elements come in different styles, wattages, voltages, thread sizes, and heating element configurations to suit different water heater models and sizes.
Types of Water Heater Elements
Threaded Water Heater Elements are commonly used in residential electric water heaters. They come with screw threads that make it easy to install and replace them when they wear out. Low watt density Water Heater Elements are designed for areas with hard water. They have a larger surface area that reduces the amount of heat they produce, preventing the buildup of mineral deposits on their surface. Voltage is also an important factor to consider when choosing Water Heater Elements. Different voltages are required for different water heater models and sizes.
How Water Heater Elements are Made
Water Heater Elements are typically made from copper, nickel, or stainless steel alloys that are resistant to high temperatures and corrosion. The heating element is made from a high-resistance wire that is wound around a ceramic or glass core. The wire's thickness and length determine the wattage of the Water Heater Element. Thread size is also an essential factor to consider when constructing Water Heater Elements. The thread size must match the size of the hole in the water heater tank to ensure a secure fit.
