24 Volt DC low voltage submersible water heater element - Available in 400 Watt or 600 Watt.
Can be used direct with batteries, solar panels, hydroelectric
generators, as a wind turbine dump diversion load. You can run high
voltage through the element as long as you don't exceed the rated
wattage of the element, example: a 600 watt element can handle a 600
watt max solar array output of 150 volts 4 amps, example2: a 300 watt
element can handle a max output of 300 watts 200 volt at 1.5 amps.
If your panel voltage times your panel amperage (the panel's total wattage) does not exceed the wattage rating of this element, then you can safely use the element with your higher voltage panels.DO NOT USE GRID POWER AS IT WILL
IMMEDIATELY DESTROY THE ELEMENT!
Can also be used as a solar panel dump
Fits standard water heaters with a 1" NPT or your own custom heater tank.
First, we start with solid brass base and copper, then the element is nickel plated for long life.
• Livestock water tank deicer (low amp draw means you won't drain
your battery as fast). For keeping dog, cat, and other domestic
animals' water from freezing.
• Standard American water heater element replacement for on or off grid applications
• Water preheating
• Campers, Motor homes
• Emergency hot water
• Portable commercial, industrial machines and equipment
• Runs off your car battery for portable hot water anywhere
• Direct wind and solar applications
• CONCRETE MIXING TRUCKS
• Use for diy solar batch water heaters
• For heating motor oil, vegetable oil, or most any other oils or liquids
• and many, many more uses where heat or diversion loads are needed.
DC water heating elements are much safer than 110 volt
Heat water directly using a wind turbine generator (with or without a
battery bank). Wind turbine generators are used primarily for
The power used can be stored in a battery bank or connected to the mains
supply using a suitable grid tie inverter.
In very strong winds, and/or when the batteries are fully charged a wind
turbine may generate more current than the batteries can handle.
Therefore a dump load is often used to divert the extra energy to heat
water so it is not wasted and so that the wind turbine does not spin so
quickly that it is damaged.
Diversion Load Water Heating
Pictured below is a typical 12 Volt water heating element which can be
screwed into an immersion heater draincock hole.
When used as a diversion (dump) load, such an element is connected to
the batteries via a charge regulator.
When the regulator detects that the batteries are fully charged, it
diverts the generated electricity to the element which heats water.
