But what are appliances?
In layman’s term, all the electrically operated devices or equipment designed to perform domestic chores or some other kind of tasks are referred to as appliances. Every appliance carries a heating element inside it which makes it functional and effective. This heating element helps the appliance to produce heat energy.
A heating element is a coil or filament made from metal alloys or alloys that converts electrical energy into heat energy. There are different kinds of metal alloys that are used to manufacture heating elements and some of them are— Aluminum, Copper, Incoloy, Inconel, MS, Nickel, Stainless steel, and Titanium. The filament produces heat energy and therefore metal alloys make the best-quality heating element as they have high resistance to heat. This means metal alloys don’t tend to melt or break at high temperature.
It is the heating element that makes an appliance more valuable. Therefore, it is important to buy an appliance with a high-quality heating element. Heating elements are available for appliances that are used in both domestic and industrial purposes.
Home and kitchen appliances like Chapati Makers, Dryers, Hot Plates, Immersion Rods, Irons, Microwave Ovens, Refrigerators, Solar Heaters, Toasters, and Washing Machines etc use a heating element.
On the other industrial appliances like Popcorn Machines, Commercial Refrigerator Defrost Heaters, Pizza-bread Ovens, Saunas and Water Dispensers etc also use a heating element.
Major Advantage of Heating Element
The major advantage of a heating element is that it can be replaced in case of any damage. If you have either a washing machine or water heater with a damaged heating element then you can easily replace the heating element instead of buying a new appliance.
Water heating elements are easily available in the market. You can visit any electrical store to get a heating element for your water heater or geyser. Replacing the heating element of every old appliance can save your money. However, while buying the water heating element make sure that the heating element is made from metal alloys. In addition to this, make sure that you know the brand name and model number of the water heater or geyser installed in your house.
Every model of water heaters carries a heating element with different specifications. Water heating element manufacturers offer heating elements for all brands that are available in the market. They manufacture heating elements meeting requirements demanded by Indian Standards Institute (ISI). Now make your damaged appliances functional by replacing their heating elements.
