The SmartOne Max self-limiting immersion heater from Process Technology is designed with safety in mind, featuring a self-regulating element that cannot ignite plastic tanks. According to the company, the positive temperature coefficient (PTC) technology acts like a natural thermostat within the heater. The elements heat quickly, but once the maximum operating temperature is reached, the heater output is gradually decreased to prevent element overheating. This eliminates the risk of fires, since the maximum surface temperature is below the ignition temperature of plastic tanks.

Other benefits of this technology include longer heater life; reduced wiring and no downtime to change a tripped protector; and lower cost of ownership, since there is no need to stock replacement over-temperature protectors.
