Element Incoloy Low Watt Density Straight 6.0kW
Element Incaloy Low Watt Density Straight 6.0kW
plumbonline have sourced a range of hot water heating elements in all the popular models, even the hard to come by variants. We ship free to your door, straight or sickle in copper, incaloy or duraloy.
Why choose an Incoloy Element?
Superalloys, also known as high performance alloys, have become the steel of choice for corrosion resistance and versatility providing;
- Good corrosion resistance in hard water environments
- Excellent strength resistance in high-temperature settings
- Excellent oxidation resistance in high-temperature settings
When combined with low watt density output you have a perfect combination of efficient energy distribution in a resilient long-life element. With a marginal increase in upfront cost you can have your element do the job its meant too rather than becoming another sacrificial anode* in your tank. Reduce your service costs and increase your efficiency and check out our Incoloy range at plumbonline today.

For use in extreme water hardness conditions -Bore water or Hard water towns supplies.
Dissolved minerals (such as salt, calcium & lime) in the water supply can result in scale (like that found in a well used kettle which sometimes comes loose & end up in your coffee) building up on a water heating element. Where these concentrations are high, this will considerably shorten the life of the element. Stainless steel alloys such as Incaloy (800 & 825) are resistant to this scale build are used to extend element life in hard water areas.
Why Low Watt Density?
Low-Watt Density electric heating element has a much larger surface area transferring heat to water in the tank. This spreads out the distribution of wattage. For example, each square cm of a 4800-watt low-watt density element is conducting less electrical energy than its high-watt density counterpart. As a result, a low-watt density element operates more efficiently and lasts longer, because its surface simply doesn’t have to work as hard.
(All hard wired electrical items must be installed by a licensed electrician)
