The new OMEGA™ VP and VPT Series self-regulating, fully grounded immersion heaters are ideal for insertion into small tanks, vessels and appliance as well as compressors, oils, fluids and plating cells. Available in stainless steel of PFA sheath for corrosive environments, both models are shatterproof, grounded with a three-wire, 5' (1.5 m) long power cord and have a solid state heating element. Best suited for use in applications where heating, excess temperature protection controls and regulating components must be fitted into a small space, these heaters are lightweight, easy-to-handle, rapid heating (maximum temperature is 212°F (100°C), units that eliminate any danger of overheating. Auto-stabilized temperature prevents hot spots, thereby ensuring uniform heating. Accessories include a ½" NPT Kynar screw plug adaptor which holds the heater securely in place, and a polypropylene mounting flange so the heater can be suspended vertically into small vessels.

useful for certain purpose!The heater is just ok for heating water like 1gallon or below because it will not take so much time and at least keep the temperature constant when it gets. But for more volume liquid, it is not ok due to just 100 W voltage.
The VP-107 Heater material is made of 316 Stainless Steel.

Does your Item# VPT-311/120V require a separate power supply / controller?
Asked by: cooperke61
The VPT-311/120V heater does not require a controller. It has a built in regulator that will allow the heater to heat to 100C or 212F. It ships with a 3' long conduit flexible cable with stripped ends that will require a 3 prong plug to be installed or it can be wire inside of an electrical box to a standard 3 conductor power lead consisting of a Hot, Neutral and grounding wire.
