27kW Over the Side Vat Heater.
A new addition to our range the 27kW Over the Side Vat Heater is very special, very bespoke, and sadly very expensive.
In Stainless Steel 316L, using 9 x 3 = 27kW 240v elements at 45w/in², with special Stainless Steel terminal box, would be approximately £2300.
The same thing in PTFE would need a bigger S/S box to accommodate the coils, due to the increased element length, with the elements rated at 22w/in² so as not to melt the PTFE sheathing, would cost around £3500.
At these prices, you would be better off going for 3 x Standard PTFE 9kW, but if space is restricted, at least you have another option. Albeit a terribly expensive one!
Fixing to the tank would also be customers responsibility.

Yes, it’s the same as CHeflon, but that’s trademarked, so I’d better not mention it by name.
Simply put, a PTFE heater is a longer Stainless Steel element than normal, with a protective sheath pulled over it, to assist with chemical ingress resistance. A bit like putting a condom on an elephant, one would guess. Longer element required to allow lower watt density, and therefore surface temperature, so as not to melt the PTFE coating.
The image below shows all of the various shapes and bends which can be achieved, if you are unable to accomodate the drops listed in the table further down the page.
