What is the electric heater capacity required to heat 80 liters of Hytherm 600 oil in a tub or when the oil is circulated from the tub by a pump to the reactor jacket?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: How do you calculate heater capacity?16 February 2012 at 1:29pmThe heater capacity is dependent upon the length of time required to heat the oil. If the oil is in a circulation loop, then the duty must be determined by the inlet temperature and flow rate. Perform the energy balance to determine the duty.
