Thermostat and temperature limiter

Thermostat and temperature limiter with manual reset

Tubular elements with Ø 8.5 mm can be supplied with fitted thermostat and temperature limiter with manual reset. These are fitted at the end of the electrical element. This element design with fitted BTS and BTC is approved by NEMKO, VDE and UL and is especially suitable for heating fluids.


To decide which cut-off temperature the temperature limiter should have, measurements must be taken under actual operating conditions. The cut-off temperature must be at least 25–30 °C higher than the maximum temperature of the temperature limiter during normal operation.
