Heating Elements

Most equipment or machinery that require heat to perform their processes use a heating element of one kind or another. Furnaces, heating process lines, oven dryers, water heaters, and other machine makers approach dpstar’s Maltec H range of manufactured heating elements for their heating requirements. The amount and wideness of the our customer base who purchase such heaters for their process application is almost uncountable. For example one of our biggest markets is in the packaging industry where these players use applications such as plastic fabricating, foam fabricating, metal fabricating and food processing industries, cartridge heaters are inserted into the machine where the heating is required. Immersion heaters and tubular heaters are used when the application required the heat to be transferred into liquid or air in industrial drying ovens, storage tanks for temperature control, pressure vessel heating, steam generation, furnace and boilers, water treatment facilities and many other applications.For instance, immersion heater elements are required when a process such as food manufacturing or drinks production takes place.

dpstar makes such heating elements and through our wealth of experience, we have been a renowned supplier and manufacturer of these heaters in the Malaysia market.



Heating requirements are critical in many different processes in the manufacturing industry, to fulfill such requirements heating elements are used heavily because they can be shaped and customised to different size, specification, configuration. The option to change different materials allows for most applications across different industries. But the fundamentals remain the same, these heaters convert electrical energy to heating energy and the heat is disbursed through contact with air, liquid, and solids.

Since the heaters allow for flexibility, many will find them being used in infrared heaters, flexible heaters, quartz heater’s just to name a few. All these heaters can be found in industrial or commercial application whether to control or maintain a certain temperature. The most widely used heating element today, also one of dpstar’s mainly supplied and distributed heater in Malaysia is tubular heaters, they can be found on kitchen stove tops and dishwashers. While other heating elements can be seen in industrial and commercial application in kilns, tanks, and drying ovens.

dpstar’s heating elements is produced under our trademark Maltec-H brand, we are one of the largest makers and suppliers of such heaters in Malaysia and South-east Asia.

Heating elements can be found in a wide array of applications, and represent the core and fundamentals of most of the other types of heaters in the market today, through the usage of heating elements, metal tubes, and MGO powder, these elements can be shaped and turned into different types of heaters such as liquid immersion heaters, finned heaters, air heaters, and so on.

dpstar is a reputable distributor and customized maker of heating elements in Malaysia with close to 30 years of experience.

Tubular Immersion heater

Industrial immersion heaters are used for direct liquid immersion heating applications. They are constructed of one or more heater elements brazed or welded into various types of mounting fittings. Tubular immersion heater is the best adapted solution for heating fluids i.e Water, oil, fuel, solvents, flowing gases, baths for surface treatment, etc.

These immersion heaters on a screw plug or a flange are designed to be mounted in the tank bottom from the interior. The height of the heating circuits is generally reduced to the minimum in order to allow for major variations in the liquid level. The circuits arranged in layers or on spools allow installing high power densities.

We at dpstar Manufacturing can help you define the product you are looking for (kind of metal sheath, watt density, type of assembly, regulation, etc.…). Standard and custom engineered designs are available for tailored solutions to your thermal application requirements.

  1. Screw Plug Immersion Heater

Immersion heaters come in a wide variety of configurations, styles, and shapes.
Our goal is create a simple yet effective design to solve any fluid-heating environment you have. By selecting the best sheath material, choosing the optimum fitting method and manufacturing the elements to any desired watt density, you can expect the optimum engineered heating solution for your requirements. A Screw Plug Immersion Heater can have from 1 to 3 elements, or blades, either welded or brazed into the screw plug.

  1. Flange Immersion Heater

The wide dimensional range of standard flanges (ANSI) allows designing immersion heaters from a few hundred Watts to several hundreds of kilowatts. dpstar Manufacturing also provides a lot of special flanges : oval clamp flanges, light stainless steel flanges, brass flanges.

  1. Over-The-Site Immersion Heater

These immersion heaters are designed to be placed in tanks to be heated by the tanks’ upper openings. So the heaters may be immersed or withdrawn without it being necessary to empty the tank.

This concept allows the immersion heaters to be easily cleaned and the same heater to be used in several tanks. It also allows an easy replacement of the immersion heater in case of a bath change.

  1. Immersion Heater With Ceramic Core Element

These immersion heaters consist of a ceramic core heating element incorporated in a cylindrical sheath made of materials adapted to the heated fluid.

This arrangement offers many advantages:

  • A wide choice of materials for the sheath: steel, all stainless steel, titanium, Pyrex, Teflon, etc.
  • A low watt density for “fragile” fluids.
  • A wide tolerance to the clogging of the heating circuits.
  • The possibility of replacing the heater without having to empty the container.

dpstar is the leading heater supplier and manufacturer in Malaysia and one of the largest distributor throughout South East Asia.

Infrared Heaters

Ceramic infrared heat elements are efficient, robust heaters which provide long wave infrared radiation. The ceramic heaters and infrared heaters are used in a diverse range of industrial and engineering applications such as thermoforming heaters, packaging and as heaters for paint curing, printing and drying. They are also used very effectively in infrared outdoor heaters and infrared saunas. Ceramic elements produced by Ceramicx include ceramic trough elements, ceramic hollow elements, ceramic flat elements, and ceramic infrared bulbs.

Ceramic elements operate in the temperature of 300°C to 700°C (572°F – 1292°F) producing infrared wavelengths in the 2 – 10 micron range. Most plastics and many other materials absorb infrared best in this range, which makes the ceramic heater the most popular infrared radiant emitter on the market. A range of aluminised steel reflectors are also available to ensure the maximum amount of infrared radiation is reflected forward to the target area.

Ceramicx infrared heat technology provides solutions for infrared heating elements in the Malaysia and distribute to many countries around the world including ceramic elements, heaters, infrared heating elements and infrared bulbs Malaysia and worldwide.
