Electrically heated pipe is used for conveying melted material at temperature. Heated Pipes can be manufactured to almost any length with 100-550 temperature range. 120 or 240 volt.


Sta-Warm heated pipe conveys molten materials without loss of heat or temperature. The heating arrangement is not normally designed to increase temperature of materials during conveyance.

Materials commonly carried through Sta-Warm heated pipe include potting compounds, pitch, asphalt, plastics, waxes, paraffin, resins, and adhesives as well as some of the low melting point soft metals.


  • Adjustable thermostat
  • Multiple circuit blanket type element
  • One ft. to twenty ft. lengths to suit
  • Schedule 40 steel piping standard
  • Brass, stainless, iron, etc. available
  • Suitable thermal insulation
  • Rugged steel housings
  • Complete, custom systems available
  • Single phase, 120 or 240 volt


A minimum length of 12 inches to a maximum of 20 feet are available. It is generally recommended however, that single lengths should not exceed 10 feet to expedite ease of handling and installing. Several sections of pipe may be connected by couplings, unions or flanges as required to reach greater distances. Successful installations having conveying distance of 400 feet have been made.


Standard schedule 40 iron pipe sizes are 2”, 1-1/2”, 1-1/4”, 1”, 3/4” or 1/2”. Other diameters and weights are available on special order.


Black steel pipe is standard but other materials are available. Included are stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper, aluminum, nickel and Monel metal. Both ends of each pipe section are threaded with standard pipe thread. Layers of heavy insulation within a sheet metal protective cover reduce heat loss to a minimum.

Sta-Warm pipe is heated by the well-known Sta-Warm method which includes many feet of insulated heating element applied to the pipe over almost its length to assure uniform heat distribution. Each length of pipe is separately wired and employs its own variable automatic thermostat of the bulb capillary type. Standard temperature range is 250 - 550 F. However, other ranges are available on special order.

The thermostat on each section is calibrated at the factory as part of its 36-hour test before shipment.


Available voltages are 120, 208 or 240, single phase and 50 or 60 cycle only.
