Argus Heating design, manufacture, and distribute Pipe Insert Elements which provide an effective way to heat storage tanks, temperature sensitive materials and other difficult to heat materials. The Heaters fit into a pipe sleeve protecting the heater maximising the life of the heater and allowing it to be serviced without draining the storage tank. Argus Heating Pipe Insert Elements are suitable for a wide range of applications.


  • Heat is transferred to the inside pipe wall by convection and radiation.
  • Large surface area reduces the pipe temperature, minimising any damage to the product.
  • Extended life of element due to lower element temperature and non-contact with product.
  • Easy element removal without the need for emptying the tank.


  • Open Coil Ceramic - low to medium watt density applications, nickel chromium alloy supported by circular ceramic insulators.
  • Semi-Enclosed Ceramic - high watt density applications, nickel chromium alloy fully supported by slotted ceramic insulators.
  • Tubular Metal Sheath - high watt density applications or where vibration is present, metal sheath elements supported by metal spacers.
  • Custom Design - matched or designed for the application.
