Everything You Need To Know About Heating Coil

by Pratik Mehta Arihant Heaters

Heating coils are an essential component in a variety of industrial and commercial applications. They are used to transfer heat from a source, such as electricity or gas, to a desired location or object. There are many different types of heating coils available, each with its own unique set of features and characteristics. 

In this blog, we will cover everything you need to know about heating coils, including how they work, the different types available, and what are the important factors to consider when choosing a heating coil.

Working of the Heating Coil

Let's start with a basic understanding of how heating coils work. Essentially, heating coils are made up of a conductive material, such as copper or aluminum, which is wound into a spiral shape. When electricity or gas is passed through the coil, it generates heat. The heat is then transferred to the surrounding environment or object, depending on the application.

Types of Heating Coils

There are several types of heating coils available, each designed for specific applications and environments.

Resistance heating coils: These coils use electricity to generate heat. They are often used in industrial and commercial applications, such as drying and curing processes. 

Gas heating coils: These coils use gas, such as natural gas or propane, to generate heat. They are commonly used in boilers and furnaces.

Steam heating coils: These coils use steam to transfer heat. They are often used in HVAC systems to heat buildings and homes. 

Immersion heating coils: These coils are submerged in a liquid or other substance to transfer heat. They are commonly used in tanks and vessels to heat liquids and gases.

Strip heating coils: These coils are thin and flat, and are commonly used for heating fluids and gases in tanks and pipes.

Tubular heating coils: These coils are cylindrical in shape and are suitable for heating liquids and gases in tanks and vessels. 

Finned heating coils: These coils have fins attached to the surface of the coil, and are used in air heating applications, such as furnaces and air handling units.

Now that you have a basic understanding of how heating coils work and the different types available, let's take a look at some of the most important factors to consider when choosing a heating coil.

There are several factors to consider when selecting a heating coil, including the material of construction, size and shape, wattage, and voltage. 

1.     The material of construction is important as it determines the durability and corrosion resistance of the coil, with options such as stainless steel, copper, and aluminum being popular choices.

2.     The size and shape of the heating coil will depend on the application, with larger coils being suitable for heating larger volumes of fluids or gases, and smaller coils being suitable for smaller applications such as maintaining process temperatures.

3.     The wattage and voltage of the heating coil will also need to be considered, as this determines the amount of heat that the coil can generate.
